The Pat Tillman Story Continues

Big story breaking in the USA. In April 2004, Pat Tillman was killed whilst on duty in Afghanistan. His story was the stuff of Hollywood legend. A talented professional American footballer, Tillman gave up his multi-million dollar contract with the Arizona Cardinals to join the American ‘war on terror’ after the September 11th attacks in 2001.
His story turned to tragedy, however, when he was killed in April 2004. The outpouring of National grief soon turned to bewilderment when it was announced weeks later that he had, in fact, been killed by ‘friendly fire.’ Now, two years on, a criminal investigation has been launched amidst rumours of military cover-ups and suspicions that his death was possibly more than just another example of ‘friendly fire.’
