The Army Special Operations Command initially claimed that there was an exchange with hostile forces. After a lengthy investigation conducted by Brigadier General Jones, the U.S. Department of Defense concluded that both the Afghan militia soldier's and Pat Tillman's deaths were due to friendly fire aggravated by the intensity of the firefight. A more thorough investigation concluded that no hostile forces were involved in the firefight and that two allied groups fired on each other in confusion after a nearby explosive device was detonated. On July 26, 2007, the AP received official documents stating that the investigating doctors performing the autopsy suspected that Tillman was murdered.

No responses because you use one incident to paint the whole military.
Maybe you should investigate and see if military is really guilty of killing civilians left and right .

Just stop being ignorant and supporting any troops overseas at all.
WE ARE OVER THERE ON A LIE ANYWAYS.
Hell, I'd go as far to say just cut off support to them and let the desert eat them all alive.

I can't find any reference to such an atrocity except for reprints of this article.
I find it hard to believe that this actually happened.
are you kidding me? you do know what kind of folks join the army right? especially the infantry.... people who want to shoot "ragheads". im a vet, i know what im talkin about. no not everyone thats in there is a criminal or a desperate poor person lookin to pop some heads but to say its "hard to believe". youve been living in the basement too long... we massacred vietnamese, iraqis, we firebombed japs, germans and italians during world war II. tens of thousands of woman and children burned to death becasue of our indescriminate bombing of cities... the only country to use the A bomb, thousands insinerated instantly... get over the illusion that "americans" are the good guys please, its makin me sick.

i have just read a news item that said obama was so horrified at this news that he ordered the executions of the black ops cia people responsible.
the story goes that a special forces team was sent in and executed them
and then blew them up to back the official story that a double agent killed them in a suicide bomb attack .
sorry i am not good at adding attachments but i am sure some of you can find the story . i think it was in beforeitsnews . com

As usual on threads like this we're getting the people saying what do you know about such things, it's so easy to criticise from your computer bla bla bla.
Oh well please forgive me, i haven't recently visited a foreign country and slaughtered some children. If you have then feel free to enlighten us with your knowledge.
