Ah, the neverending saga of lies and myths. Pat Tillman,the ex-NFL player who volunteered for Ranger duty in Afghanistan, was killed not by enemy fire, but by extremely negligent friendly fire - leading to disciplinary action for his team. CNN/Wash Post has more on the incident that lead to his death. http://www.cnn.com/2004/US/12/05/tillman.friendly.fire.ap/index.html I respect Pat Tillman's choice. I respect the work our military does. I hate the whole culture of spreading lies and mistruths about what happens in war - how certain incidents seem heroic, but a year later, when the lies are discarded, the truth is plain and ugly. I hate the liars, and I hate the sheep who swallow these lies hook, line, and sinker, and perpetuate them. And I hate the people who get all upset and belligerant when confronted with any evidence that our military is not some GI Joe kiddee tv show. Well, RIP Pat Tillman. At least you gave your life in Afghanistan, against the real enemy, instead of being killed by stupid mistakes on the ground in another war that was nothing but a series of stupid mistakes by your civilian bosses.
