Politicizing Pat Tillman’s Death

Norwegianity has a superb post today on the Bush administration’s politicization of former Arizona Cardinals safety Pat Tillman‘s death in Afghanistan. For the record: Tillman enlisted to fight in the war against terror, was opposed to the war in Iraq, and was killed by friendly fire.

You’ve never guess any of those things if you were listening to what the Bush administration says about Tillman. It’s straight out of the script of Wag the Dog, they way they’ve tried to manage his death as a publicity tool for the war in Iraq.
