Pat Tillman's Father To Army Investigator: 'F--- You... And Yours' (EXCLUSIVE)
expect the august 20 movie to be of concern to the pentagon; i do not think it will cast a favorable light on the political underbelly of the military

do not fail to read Pat Tillman's Father's letters to the higher-ups, letting them know why the DoD investigations were bogus. for those who should not be exposed to crude language, avoid the letters
here is an excerpt and an observation from the post:
... "You are a General," Tillman's father writes Jones after being presented with a briefing book of his findings. "There is no way a man like you, with your intelligence, education, military, experience, responsibilities (primarily for difficult situations), and rank... believes the conclusions reached in the March 31, 2005 Briefing Book. But your signature is on it. I assume, therefore, that you are part of this shameless bull****. I embarrassed myself by treating you with respect [on] March 31, 2005. I thought your rank deserved it and anticipated something different from the new and improved investigation. I won't act so hypocritically if we meet again."

"In sum: **** you... and yours."
The two letters are worth a read, if only for the insight they provide into how haphazard and mismanaged (deliberately or not) the investigations were.
