Hearing of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee: House Hearing on Accuracy of Battlefield Information

"Our hearing today has been about two cases, the Tillman case and the Lynch case, and in both cases, it seems like we have - we say deceptive - misleading information - it wasn't misleading information, we have false information that was put out to the American people. Stories that were fabricated and made up." - Rep. Henry Waxman, Oversight and Government Reform Chairman

US Navy Seal Stephen White was Pat Tillman's friend and gave a eulogy at the May 2004 memorial service. White was put in the position of unknowingly telling the government's lie about how Pat Tillman died, "My role as far as at the memorial - it's a horrible thing that happened with Pat. I'm the guy that told America how he died basically at that memorial and it was incorrect. That does not sit well with me."

"With tears in their eyes, Pat Tillman's furious family accused the government yesterday of turning his tragic death by friendly fire into a heroic fairy tale.

Struggling to contain his anger, Kevin Tillman said the government's publicity stunt made a mockery of his brother's patriotic decision to spurn a lucrative NFL contract and enlist in the Army to serve his country."
