ABC Gets It Wrong On Tillman
Is this ABC article poorly researched or deliberately misleading?
Tillman's Fictional Heroic Death: Did Bush Know?
Did Bush know? Did Bush know?!?
Back in March The Associated Press reported that :
"Just seven days after Pat Tillman's death, a top general warned there were strong indications that it was friendly fire and President Bush might embarrass himself if he said the NFL star-turned-soldier died in an ambush, according to a memo obtained by The Associated Press."
So did Bush know? That's a ridiculous question.
The President had been informed that Pat Tillman's death was possibly friendly fire and decided to take advantage of the story of a real American hero in order to rally support around the war and perhaps to divert attention away from the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse.
