NFL | General suspected Tillman's death was friendly fire one week later

The Associated Press reports then-Maj. Gen. Stanley McChrystal suspected and warned there were strong indications that former Arizona Cardinals S Pat Tillman was killed by friendly fire. He warned President Bush might embarrass himself if he said the former player died in an ambush, according to a memo obtained by the Associated Press. In a memo sent to a four-star general a week after Tillman's death, McChrystal warned that it was "highly possible" the Army Ranger was killed by friendly fire. " I felt that it was essential that you received this information as soon as we detected it in order to preclude any unknowing statements by our country's leaders which might cause public embarrassment if the circumstances of Cpl. Tillman's death become public, " McChrystal wrote to Gen. John Abizaid April 20, 2004.
