Pat Tillman's Brother Speaks Up

Pat Tillman, the celebrated NFL player who left the league just after 9/11 to enlist in the Armed Forces, and who's death in combat was turned into a celebration of bravery and sacrifice and patriotism (until it was discovered that he was actually killed by "friendly fire"), is finally being avenged by his family ...

Today, Tillman's brother, Kevin spoke at a Defense Department hearing saying (among other things), “Pat was and still is a great man ... Pat wanted to leave a positive legacy and he did. For the government to hijack his virtue and legacy is horrific.”

Indeed, but are we to expect anything less from this current administration and it's various flunkies.

What a shame for this country and the family of Mr. Tillman.
