Who killed Pat Tillman? And why?

The Bush White House refuses to release its documents relating to the death of Pat Tillman, the pro football star who was killed by "friendly fire" in Afghanistan in 2004.

Questions remain about what really happened to Tillman, a critic of the war in Iraq, but the Bush administration won't reveal what it knows, or what it knew, or when it knew it.

Congress is putting bipartisan pressure on Bush concerning this matter, and heat is emanating from other quarters as well. Check it out here and here and here.

This whole thing stinks so bad it's revolting. Where are all the patriotic conservatives demanding that the Bush administration drop this executive privilege excuse and come clean?

Mr. B: These days, the terms "patriotic" and "conservative" tend to be be mutually exclusive. Most of your right-wingers are pseudo-patriotic. They think that blind allegiance to the commander-in-chief is the highest form of patriotism.
