    Anyone catch the interview on MSNBC with Pat Tillman's mother. Really sad, six years later the government is still lying. Documentary coming out very soon. What I found amazing, was that Tillman thought that the government might use him (in his death) to promote him. He smuggled his signed copy of his wishes (no military funeral) and gave them to his wife and communicated to her, his wishes. Sure enough, the military went to his house and tried to get his wife to sign off on a military funeral. Also, the letter his dad sent the government blasting them for their behavior. At the close of the letter, he writes: "F### You". The letter ironically automatically opens up the investigation into Tillman's death. The whole situation is tragic, and another episode of our government not telling us the truth, even when their pants are around their ankles.

    The Government never tells the truth, even less so during times of war.. if you have not read Jon Krakauer's, "Where men meet Glory" suggest you do so...
