Manufacturing Heros

Manufacturing Heros

After the Jessica Lynch debacle and after reading her account of what happened and how much it differed from the "official" version by the Army I am not suprised to learn that the Army's stories about Pat Tillman's death were also greatly exaggerated.

As it turns out, he was not even killed by the enemy, he was killed by American soldiers who were mistakenly firing on the Afgan soldier that Tillman was with.

What irritates me the most about the current situation in America is how Dishonest the government repeatedly is, and how apathetic the American people are about that fact. Nobody cares that the government lies anymore. They almost expect it and when it does happen the only reaction is shrugging shoulders and a sigh.
