Pat Tillman, shot three times in the head, died on a rocky hillside in Afghanistan on April 22, 2004. The Army initially claimed the 1997 Pacific 10 defensive player of the year from Arizona State was killed in a firefight with hostile forces. His mother didn't buy it.
Dannie Tillman pressed for the truth, and the Army eventually acknowledged that there were no hostile forces that night. Pat was killed by friendly fire.
On Friday, the extraordinary documentary "The Tillman Story" will be released. It explores many of the unanswered questions surrounding not only Tillman's death, but the coverup that followed.
"Absolutely unbelievable," sophomore quarterback Brock Osweiler said. "In fact, as soon I came back to the stadium I went and saw coach [Noel] Mazzone and I told him I really feel like it's something every incoming freshman football player needs to see. . . . Most people know what Pat Tillman did, but not exactly the person he was.
"We run out every Saturday in the Tillman Tunnel. We touch the 'PT42' [sign] coming out, and I feel like some guys don't know why we do that. The movie definitely explained a lot of things."
Tillman's parents, Dannie and Patrick, are now divorced, but they appeared Monday night on CNN's "Larry King Live." Video of their appearance is after the jump.
Work is complete on the upcoming documentary "The Tillman Story", which chronicles the government's coverup of the death of Pat Tillman.
The former Arizona State star died on a rocky hillside in Afghanistan in 2004, and members of the Bush Administration and military officials tried to turn his death into propaganda, claiming that Tillman was killed in a firefight with hostile forces.
Dannie Tillman, Pat's mother, pressed for the truth, and the Army eventually acknowledged Tillman was killed by friendly fire.
It has been six years since Pat Tillman was shot three times in the head on a rocky hillside in Afghanistan. The Army initially claimed Tillman was killed in a firefight with hostile forces.
Dannie Tillman, Tillman's mom, didn't buy it. She pressed for the truth, and the Army eventually acknowledged that there were no hostile forces in the firefight. Tillman was killed by friendly fire.
Bill Dwyre of the Los Angeles Times writes that journalists — himself included — got caught up chronicling Tillman's heroic story. Instead, they should have followed Dannie's lead and pressed for the truth.
