I don't know how many of you follow the news about Iraq or what have you, but this is pretty sad. If any of you remember Jessica Lynch and how they made her out to have been 'rescued' under heavy enemy resistance.. which turned out to be a completely BS story like a lot of the propaganda that they're shooting out, this is just another disgusting example of the US governments population control.
In this case, Tillman was said to have been killed by enemy fire while defending his squad in a firefight. They made him into a hero in the media. Now the medical examiners are confirming he was killed by 3 rounds to the head less than 30 feet away, with NO evidence of any enemy fire in the area at all. He was fragged by somebody in his unit.
Why, then, does the US Government feel the need to propagate such stories? Why CREATE heroes under circumstances that were very unheroic? The government is lying to you on a very regular basis, but by the time the truth comes out as in this case, the story is already completely out of the public eye and nobody hears about it.
I don't understand how some people are falling for it. They are inventing heroes out of horrible situations, so they don't have black marks on their already shameful war. Vietnam #2
Thoughts? Other stories you've heard?
