Describes the "Untold" Tillman Story of how President Obama and the Democratic Congress whitewashed Gen. Stanley McChrystal's central role in the Army & Bush administration's cover-up of Pat Tillman';s 2004 friendly-fire death in Afghanistan. I've added my detailed annotations about the "untold" story to notes from Michael Hasting's book "The Operators" (about Gen. McChrystal & the backstory behind President Obama's Afghan War "Surge." This document is my attempt to prevent a summary of all of my previous Tillman posts at my feralfirefighter blog.
