Patrick Tillman Was Murdered?

Firedoglake — BREAKING: A Whole New Level of Horror describes evidence that might lead one to believe Patrick Tillman was murdered.

Just writing that makes me feel like some Vint Vince Foster conspiracy nut.

But it comes from the AP:

Army medical examiners were suspicious about the close proximity of the three bullet holes in Pat Tillman’s forehead and tried without success to get authorities to investigate whether the former NFL player’s death amounted to a crime, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.

“The medical evidence did not match up with the, with the scenario as described,” a doctor who examined Tillman’s body after he was killed on the battlefield in Afghanistan in 2004 told investigators.

The doctors – whose names were blacked out – said that the bullet holes were so close together that it appeared the Army Ranger was cut down by an M-16 fired from a mere 10 yards or so away.

Are we to believe the White House covered up the fragging of a soldier because he was a well-known sports star? I suppose after war crimes, nothing is unimaginable any more.

(Except cannibalism, right? We don't eat people, right?)

    When you look at people as nothing more than potential resources to be exploited for your propaganda, its tends to shift your thinking sometimes…

    Don’t forget these are the people who invented Jessica Lynch.

    3 bullet holes in the head in close proximity. The M16 fires 150 rounds per minute in Automatic mode, even a quick squeeze of the trigger lets go more then 3 rounds, and if the gun was on semi-auto to get 3 in close proximity is pretty impossible because the target will drop before the trigger is pulled the second and thrid times.

    It had to of been put to his head execution style at point blank.

    “even a quick squeeze of the trigger lets go more then 3 rounds,”

    M16s can be set to fire just 3 rounds when the trigger is held down, to conserve ammo but still make use of automatic functionality.

    I don’t know why I know this.

    The horror, the horror. . .

    re ME’s remark, yeah I believe M16’s can be jigged in this fashion. Cannibalism? Cheney may not have gotten around to the actual beef yet but if gnawing on the living counts then we are talking a fine old cannibal indeed.

  7. WhoKnew says:

    Bah, cannibalism schmannibalism. We’ve all known Cheney sucks the nerve tissue from aborted embryos ever since the South Park episode with Christopher Reeve ).

    Most users can’t handle a fully auto piece of equipment.
    3 round burst allows them to stay near target.
    Limits collateral damage from the “spray and pray” school of shooting.
