Pat Tillman’s brother unloads on Bush administration and Iraq

Ouch. Pat Tillman was once the guy that the right loved talking about, since he put aside a successful NFL career to join the US Army after 9/11.

Unfortunately since his tragic death by friendly fire in Afghanistan – and the fact that the Bush White House repeatedl lied about Tillman’s death in order to use that death for political gain – the right has been less kind to the Tillman family. Now Tillman’s brother, who also joined the military after 9/11, is blasting the Bush administration. He raises many excellent points so it’s probably only a matter of time before the right smears him as well, since in their minds, being a patriot means following the script regardless of the facts presented.

Kevin Tillman has not spoken publicly about the war or his brother’s death since his discharge from the Army. But on Truthdig.com, he wrote openly about the war and America’s response to it.

“Somehow, the same incompetent, narcissistic, virtueless, vacuous, malicious criminals are still in charge of this country. Somehow, this is tolerated. Somehow, nobody is accountable for this.”

Very true, indeed. Read his full story here.
