Waxman questions Army candor on Tillman

WASHINGTON – Unanswered questions about the bungled response to Army Ranger Pat Tillman‘s friendly-fire death in Afghanistan reach into the highest ranks of the Pentagon and beyond, a key Democrat charged Wednesday.

“The concealment of Corp. Tillman‘s fratricide caused millions of Americans to question the integrity of our government, yet no one will tell us when and how the White House learned the truth,” said Waxman, D-Calif.

Both joined him at the witness table.

“Are you not ashamed?” one said. Rumsfeld didn‘t react.

Tillman‘s mother Mary and other family members watched from the last row in the committee room…

Among possible evidence of White House knowledge, lawmakers have cited a memo written by a top general seven days after Tillman‘s death warning it was “highly possible” the Army Ranger was killed by his own comrades and making clear his warning should be conveyed to the president.

President Bush made no reference to the way Tillman died in a speech delivered two days after the memo was written.

A White House spokesman has said there‘s no indication Bush received the warning in the memo written April 29, 2004, by then-Maj. Gen. Stanley McChrystal to Abizaid…

What a circus.

And to what a sorry state has our once great nation fallen.

God help us.
