Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Tillman: "Somehow nobody is accountable for this."

Pat Tillman's brother Kevin has written an article about the Iraq war that merits reading, and some reflection. Rather than clip a section from it, I'd urge you take a minute and read it in its entirety.

Kevin is a former baseball player, drafted by the Anaheim Angels in 1999. After the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, he quit baseball and enlisted in the Army. His brother Pat did so as well, turning down a big contract to play for the Arizona Cardinals in the NFL. They served together in Iraq, and later in Afghanistan. Pat died from friendly fire in Afghanistan on April 22, 2004. The cause of his death wasn't disclosed to the family by the Pentagon for over a month after the incident.
