The official deception around the death of Pat Tillman has deeply offended he editors of the Denver Post, including its cartoonist Mike Keefe: “The wartime heroism of Army Ranger Pat Tillman and Pfc. Jessica Lynch made for riveting stories. He died in a fierce firefight with the enemy. She was captured after raining shots on her attackers.
The military took great pains to propagate these yarns. The trouble is, as a disgusted nation heard in detail this week, the stories weren’t true. Congressional hearings have exposed two abhorrent examples of how Defense Department officials spun tragic events into public relations boons.”
