American Samizdat

A Pentagon investigation into the death by friendly fire of Cpl. Pat Tillman in Afghanistan will make recommendations that nine officers, including four generals, be held responsible for mistakes in the way the incident was handled and disclosed, a defense official said.

The Pentagon’s inspector general, in a report expected to be released Monday, has found a series of errors, including violations of regulations and poor judgment by the officers in the aftermath of the 2004 shooting death of Corporal Tillman, the official said.

[Also found in error: claims that there are no atheists in foxholes, and that atheist Pat Tillman was now 'with God.' Corrected by his brother at Cpl. Tillman's funeral.]
