Tillman – "Probably Killed By Friendly Fire"

War is a dangerous business…

FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) – Former pro football player Pat Tillman was “probably” killed by friendly fire as he led his team of Army Rangers up a hill during a firefight in Afghanistan last month, the U.S. Army said Saturday.

Tillman walked away from a $3.6 million NFL contract to join the Army after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

“While there was no one specific finding of fault, the investigation results indicate that Corp. Tillman probably died as a result of friendly fire while his unit was engaged in combat with enemy forces,” Lt. Gen. Philip R. Kensington Jr. said in a statement released by the Army Special Operations Command.This article in the Hampton Road Pilot highlights the struggle to tell friend from foe with new technology.
