Retired General Blamed For Deceptions In Tillman’s Death

A retired Army general is being blamed for most of the official failings surrounding the friendly fire death of Army Ranger Pat Tillman.  Secretary of the Army Pete Geren says the latest and seventh investigation into Tillman’s death reveals that retired Lieutenant General Philip Kensinger lied to investigators. 

Tillman was killed by his fellow troops in Afghanistan in April 2004.  Geren added that Kensinger failed to inform Tillman’s family as well as Army brass of the friendly fire death as required by regulations.  It is widely anticipated that Kensinger will lose one of his three stars as well as about one-thousand dollars a month in retirement pay.  As for the lower-ranking soldiers who first investigated Tillman’s killing, Geren said they made mistakes and misinterpreted Army regulations, but did nothing wrong.
