    There is definitely more to the story of Tilman's death than the military wants to admit.

    This situation just keeps getting worse and worse. I don't know if we'll ever know the truth.

    The Army brass :censored: up big time by covering up the true nature of Tillman's death, but...

    I don't, for one second, believe that a Ranger would, in cold blood, shoot another Ranger... especially in a combat zone. I can't even imagine a normal, every-day infantryman doing that crap.

    Soldiers screw up. I had my head up my fourth POC during a live-fire exercise and had a ND. If I had been shooting right-handed instead of lefty that day, one on my squad-mates could have been injured or killed.

    In this scenario, and knowing Rangers, I'm much more inclined to believe in Murphy than murder.

    From what I have seen, firedoglake has about as much credibility as dailykos, democratic underground, or the NY TI\imes. I will definitely take anything they say with a 2 ton grain of salt.

    Do you know who Huffington is?

    Same stuff, different outlet.

    We might want to wait for a more reputable source.

    Actually, I'd never heard of the first site before I got linked and I was unaware of Huffington's history. Just posting that someone else picked it up.
