Bush's Propaganda Catapultin'

From LegitGov.org:

Breaking: Top General Tried to Warn Bush on Tillman --General Sought to Warn Bush Not to Say Tillman Died in an Enemy Ambush 30 Mar 2007 Just seven days after Pat Tillman's death, a top general warned there were strong indications that it was friendly fire and President [sic] Bush might embarrass himself if he said the NFL star-turned-soldier died in an ambush, according to a memo obtained by The Associated Press. It was not until a month afterward that the Pentagon told the public and grieving family members the truth that Tillman was mistakenly killed in Afghanistan by his comrades. The memo reinforces suspicions that the Pentagon was more concerned with sparing officials from embarrassment than with leveling with Tillman's family.
