Tillman killed by "friendly fire"?
    #2747657 - 05/30/04 09:16 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

(CNN) -- U.S. Army Cpl. Pat Tillman, the former professional football player killed last month in Afghanistan, was probably killed by gunfire from his own unit during an intense firefight, the U.S. Army said Saturday.

"While there was no one specific finding of fault, the investigation indicated that Cpl. Tillman probably died of friendly fire while his unit was in combat with enemy forces," Lt. Gen. Philip Kensinger Jr., of the Army's Special Operations Command ,said at a news conference at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina.

"The results of this investigation in no way diminish the bravery and sacrifice of Cpl. Tillman," Kensinger said. "Cpl. Tillman was shot and killed while responding to enemy fire without regard to his personal safety."

What a waste of human potential!

I read this in the paper today,they said something about somebody setting off a landmine which caused the confusion.

Death does not a hero make. Living beings can contribute more than a pile of rotting flesh.

People always die in training and in the field due to friendly fire.
