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.
Tillman's mother, Mary Tillman, who has long suggested that her son was deliberately killed by his comrades, said she is still looking for answers and looks forward to the congressional hearings next week.
"Nothing is going to bring Pat back. It's about justice for Pat and justice for other soldiers. The nation has been deceived,'' she said.
The White House has refused to give Congress documents about the death of former NFL player Pat Tillman, with White House counsel Fred F. Fielding saying that certain papers relating to discussion of the friendly-fire shooting "implicate Executive Branch confidentiality interests."

Is the White House implicated somehow in Pat Tillman's possible murder?
Tillman's mother : "Nothing is going to bring Pat back. It's about justice for Pat and justice for other soldiers. The nation has been deceived,'' she said.

Theory: Tillman witnessed atrocities or other disturbing incidents in Afghanistan. He was troubled by what he saw and wanted to go public with it. His celebrity status would guarantee wide media coverage if he did. Therefore, he became the "man who knew too much" who had to be eliminated.

While it would be nice to believe that it wasn't murder, there are too many "odd" circumstances surrounding this. When has the President EVER asserted Executive Privilege in the investigation over a fratricide case? What exactly are they trying to hide?
