Pat Tillman, Revisited

3/10/06 I wrote an article concerning Pat Tillman's death in Afghanistan. This is now 8/20/06, and everybody from DoD to the NYT has forgotten about the ambiguous circumstances of Tillman's death, and no official report has ever been made public concerning this event.

I still do not understand awarding the Silver Star to Tillman, since purportedly there were no enemy involved in this friendly-fire incident. Surely Pat Tillman is a heroic figure, but Army regulations require close combat with an armed enemy for a Silver Star to be awarded. My comments are based on Josh White's 5/30/06 Washington Post article. There has been scant written on the topic since then.
