Was Pat Tillman Murdered?

Army doctors, suspicious about the close proximity of the three bullet holes in Pat Tillman's forehead said it appeared that Mr. Tillman was cut down by an M-16 fired from approximately 10 yards away. One of the doctors who examined Tillman's body after he was killed was quoted as saying,

"The medical evidence did not match up with the, with the scenario as described."
Eventually the Pentagon conducted a criminal investigation and ruled Pat Tillman's death a result of "friendly fire."

The medical examiners' testimony was released this week by the Defense Department in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.

Listed below is a sample of what was included in the 2300 pages of testimony.
  • In his last words moments before he was killed, Tillman snapped at a panicky comrade under fire to shut up and stop "sniveling."
  • Army attorneys sent each other congratulatory e-mails for keeping criminal investigators at bay as the Army conducted an internal friendly-fire investigation that resulted in administrative, or non-criminal, punishments.
  • The three-star general who kept the truth about Tillman's death from his family and the public told investigators some 70 times that he had a bad memory and couldn't recall details of his actions.
  • No evidence at all of enemy fire was found at the scene - no one was hit by enemy fire, nor was any government equipment struck.
