I agree with every bit of this. Of course, what it does is remove
focus from the completely heroic action of Tillman being there in
the first place. That's the most unfortunate part of the incident
The lies are simple, standard lies that crop up over and over again
in "war"; and on some levels, I understand that they'll be around
for a long time to come. I just wish they didn't have to get hung on
memories of someone such as Tillman.
He had a lot of reasons not to be there, but he made his choice and
stood up for it. That deserves respect.
