War - The Death of Pat Tillman

Little by little, details have been trickling out about the suspicious death of Pat Tillman, erstwhile football star and Army Ranger, and scandalously abused poster boy for Bush's wars. They haven't been satisfying details, on too many levels. People have alleged a conspiracy, a murder, a vengeful Rummy. I wanted to hear from someone who has actually been on a battlefield, who knows the armaments used, the effects they produce, and can speculate with a factual basis on what might actually have occurred.

Of course, there's no way to find a trusted voice any more. The entire misadministration lies, every one of their associates, confederates, candidates, employees, appointees, and hangers-on is a liar and a puppet and a shameless whore.

But I did find this article, written by one Stan Goff and published in Counterpunch. I really liked the way he ended his article.
They pissed on our legs and told us it was raining. Liars, every goddamn one of them. Liars, con-men, and criminals. Based on the evidence, this is what I believe. Someone has to say this out loud. Dannie Tillman has been trying to tell us this for three years.
Read it for yourself and tell me what you think.

Meanwhile, has anyone begun an inquiry into the suspicious death of LaVena Johnson?
