NFL | Probe cites missteps in aftermath of Tillman death
The Associated Press reports a Pentagon investigation will recommend nine officers be held accountable for missteps in the aftermath of the friendly fire death of Army Ranger Pat Tillman, according to senior defense officials. Four generals are included in the list of nine officers. The Defense Department inspector genearl will cite a range of errors and inappropriate conduct as the military probed the former Arizona Cardinals safety's death, according to one defense official. The official requested anonymity because the Army has not publicly released the information. The official said it appears senior military leaders might not have had all the facts or worked hard enough to obtain the facts of what happened April 22, 2004, when Tillman was killed by members of his own platoon. According to officials, the report will not make charges or suggest punishments. It will recomment the Army look at holding the nine officers accountable.
