"Yes, so he's. He's about as close as we get in this story to an individual who got some of justice? So that's good. Nobody winds up looking good about this. Like even like John McCain. When he found out that the death had come from friendly fire, briefly took an interest in like trying to figure out what it actually happened, but Mary Tillman says that he kinda stopped talking to them after he ran for president two thousand eight. Because you know that would have been. Bad for his presidential run, so like the the the story of Pat Tillman from beginning to end is a story of like a Nice Guy, trying to do the right thing in a bunch of people trying to co-opt his legacy in whatever way they can, and then running away as soon as you know, any threat to their own careers is posed is just like. So, much grossness and cowardice in this little story. I had no idea I. think that's one of the thing that pissed me off the most about the whole thing. When he became a poster boy recently again, yeah. I think we're going to continue to see that if the NFL continues to be at the center of a big cultural issue in this country is like people bringing up. So the next time you see that remember Pat. Tillman wasn't a big fan of the army hated George Bush thought the war on terror was mostly bullshit. It's a gross story, but the next time you see someone you know trying to bring Pat Tillman up is sort of an argument against why football players shouldn't Neil whenever the hell they want to Just slap them in the face with this podcast, and not your hand because. It's Kinda disgusting I. It's not even just the NFL. It's like literally anything. A Camper Nick hasn't been in the NFL in years. Yeah, and he's still gets trotted out. Because apparently soldiers have a monopoly on what sacrifices you know, and you can't possibly sacrifice if you're not dead. Yeah, and you can't like. It's this I think the thing that frustrates me most about the tillman story is just like. Like the lack of respect of like okay, this guy had his own beliefs in own reasons for doing things and like we can't even let him. be remembered the way he would want to be remembered or for the things he actually believes we're going to turn him into a political prop whenever we need a political prop, because everybody remembers his name and his Gi. Joe Face. It's frustrating, yeah! We talk more about Pat. Tillman and obviously now we're guilty of that because we're talking about Pat Tillman. and we talk more about Cabernet kneeling for fucking magical song that makes the freedom come, but like we talk more about this shit than we do like the fact that we're still fighting the war in Afghanistan yeah, we've had this conversation. More than is seventeen years too long to be at war which? Maybe. Maybe. More next year. We have our first child younger than the war. He's fighting in which that's going to be an exciting moment for this whole country. I'm really taking a look now. because I mean you can listed seventeen apparent signature I did well. If you're seventeen right now, going list and get yourself to Afghanistan and Send me a message when you are officially in a war that you're younger than and we'll will. I think all of those guys who who wanted to deploy so there and fight the enemy away from home, so his kids didn't have to fight..

"The real tragedies experienced by individual soldiers in order to deflect criticism from the disastrous war they embarked on. On this culminated a series of congressional investigation starting in two thousand seven Rumsfeld took the stand during these investigations and when he was asked when he'd learned how thome died Rumsfeld said I. Don't recall when I was told and I don't recall who told me I know that I would not engage in a cover-up which is interesting. Because Rumsfeld had taken the time to write Pat Tillman. Tillman a personal letter when he enlisted and the Secretary of defense had kept regular tabs on Pats, career pets, mother Mary leaves that heads would have rolled if Rumsfeld notorious micromanager hadn't been in the loop about pets death, which seems likely especially since his office was involved in all these email conversations about how to spin his life and his death when he spoke to Congress Pat's brother. Brother Kevin was notably less polite, he said the fact that the army, and what appears to be others attempted to hijack his virtue in his legacy is simply horrific. Lisa's country can do for him in return to uncover who is responsible for his death, who lied and covered it up and who instigated those lies and benefited from them, then ensure that justice is meted out to the coupable. So Mary. Did eventually get something approaching the truth about what had happened to her son. It took like seven investigations and to congressional inquiries, but she got more or less most of the information she was looking for. The investigation revealed that one day before the Secretary of the Army had certified Pat Silver Star General McChrystal had learned from Rumsfeld's office. That President Bush planned to talk about Pat. Tillman at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner McChrystal was scared that the president would say something about. About Pratt's bravery under enemy fire, because he knew that the truth would eventually come out and make the president look like a liar, so he sent a memo to Centcom Commander General John Abbas Ed who sent the memo onward to the White House which means of course that Rumsfeld and Bush and everybody else from pretty much. The beginning knew that this was a friendly fire issue because Bush changed the line in his speech to leave out enemy fire, so yeah, it's gross gross. Growth all the way down like you know. The second I heard you say Rumsfeld insists that he didn't know. Rumsfeld is widely known for being for the guy, so you know I. Benefit out.

"A Walmart or whatever and you talk to a person who works there, and you can make a human connection, and like talk to human being, but like the people up at corporate like it's just once. Your job is so abstract from the human beings that your job is about you do shit like this because it makes sense, you know like coopting human beings. Yeah exactly there's a way to rationalize it and this thing got rationalized. Back so the first several investigations into Pat Tillman's death were very sloppy and incomplete. Third Investigation was conducted by that Guy Kozlarich who we talked about earlier. It was apparently very very sloppy and did not answer a lot of important questions. Like why did you burn my son's armor and clothing and stuff but. burning. The evidence of education was the Evans lit on fire, but it did lead some discipline. Seven Rangers were disciplined for their part in PAT's death. Most of them most rancor kicked back into the regular army. That's what happened to these saw gunner, who killed Pat, but none of these investigations did much to help explain why four highly trained rangers and machine-gun Comrade from one hundred twenty feet away. more troubling to the Tillman family. Nothing yet released explained it. All White Pat had been shipped home nude his notebook. Burned why they hadn't been told that he died from friendly fire until a month later and why he'd been nominated for a silver star, presumably as a a method of covering up what had happened none of this was explained so eventually. The Defense Department's Inspector General Agree to carry out a fourth investigation. According to sports illustrated quote. The army finally admitted it had violated its own regulations by waiting more than a month to inform the Tillman's that their son had died as a result of suspected friendly fire, but only out of a desire to wait until it had gathered all the facts as for the burning of the uniform and body armor that might have shown bullet evidence. The army counter that it. It was done only because the bloodied gear was considered a potential biohazard and hygiene issue that they might stir emotion, and because officers in the field had already determined that fratricide was a foregone conclusion, which is about as Boesch it an answer as you can get for that Yeah, yeah, I mean. They knew fratricide within an hour. I'm willing when they went over there and found his body and. Those allies and said Hey, you shot him. Yeah, it's just gross. In took four investigations for the family to start to get an idea of how gross it was. And there's. This guy caused. The rich is A. He's not a huge part of this, but I wanNA. Keep drilling back on him because his real piece of shit, because the general who conducted that fourth investigation actually questioned Kozlarich about his shitty investigation, enduring it. He wind the Tillman family wouldn't stop asking questions about how their son died because they were atheists and he thought that like. That's why they just..

"The website is Elliott fund. One. Everett here. It is Elliott fund dot org. I was going guess org, but I didn't wanna guess wrong. Really great opportunity to of you. This was. For me. This was the first podcast. I was a part of where you were more than just asking questions to, to hear the store. You obviously have quite the connection and hearing both sides of it was certainly. Awesome. Not the right word because it's it's terrible stories on both ends but. In enlightening. I don't know the right word, but it's interesting to say the least, certainly interesting, it's that whole conversation is like, we, we were both saying is one of those, this is the story you don't hear like you're just not gonna here because people don't wanna talk about it, and that I was able to talk the Stephen about this who's directly involved in something so, so intimate. And as we said, it's something that is so shameful for us. Most people will never talk about it. And that I've really glad that the both of us could talk about it together. And some of our connections and similarities and our experiences. You know, I it took some balls on his part to come forward and tell this story. I know I know better than most people because I came in Ford and told my part of the store, too. But I just hope people listen to it. Weren't something from it, and I feel like most certainly will first foremost for me. The fact that it had like, you know, obviously happened to Stephen happened to you, and then what's van van, Alliston, Alliston, my platoon sergeant died from those are three instances of friendly fire right? Like I didn't realize obviously, I knew the Pat Tillman stuff just from I mean, if you grew up in the mid two thousand like I did you knew that just because of who pet. So that was a huge story. I didn't realize it occurs. I don't wanna say this frequently because obviously, you don't want to happen. But this wasn't a one off, like this does take place, which is it's not a one-off at all. And there are many other incidents out there. These are just some of the ones that we have personal connections to that. We're talking about. I'm no about. Sure special operations community that we're never publicized, which has to be like. Pretty much the lowest feeling you can have like within within the military. I couldn't even acquaint something like I don't know, maybe maybe killing a little kid on accident. Right. Right. But outside like friendly fires. Got it because you're, you know, especially how they split the squad lake just listening to story. It's like it in my head. I'm like, well, that's wrong. That's wrong. Like I wouldn't have done that, but I mean easier for me to say that same thing in my element was split. Which is it was doctrinal though in our case like the stays behind the Recci element goes forward on foot. That's like straight out of the manual. Right. But in retrospect, there are some control measures, we should have put in place that could have helped prevents. I just. Jot down notes during. The chain of command, obviously, you have to respect that. But just it just feels like everyone's trying to cover their own ass. And then it's like low men will sorry buddy like you're the bond gone pole. Yeah. Hit the bricks buddy. Yeah, I mean, it goes all the way up to general mcchrystal and but yeah. For them to like, blame a bunch of like privates specialists. Like, yeah, it's all on you guys, and especially in Stevens case like. Hey guys, no kidding.

"But, but it didn't help the fact that those, those items if they were destroyed it certainly didn't help the, the narrative in terms of trying to get the, the bottom of what happened and for some of our younger listeners, because this war is gone on for so long. They might. Not really. A follow up on what you said like Pat Tillman was a really big deal for the army when when, when that happened when he joined up, and he was a cycle or two ahead of me going through basic thing going through basic airborne, rip. He was just a couple of cycles ahead of me. So I all the instructors like oh yeah. We had that Pat Tillman in our course and this, and I mean. I don't say this to like to like short sell Pat Tillman. I wanna point out like it was a really big deal that this guy was like in the media. He was a hero. This guy gave up a big NFL contract to join the military during wartime, and volunteer to become a ranger. That was a really big deal at the time big deal. Yeah. And it was and that was largely. I mean, he'd never. I mean, he never gave once joint, you never get one interview the press. And so a lot of that was it was not heated invite that, you know what I mean? Like not any way he carried himself in the way to Kevin Kerr himself as well. They were they were guys who worked with they, they didn't expect special treatment, as far as I could tell they didn't receive it. They did their jobs. Well, they were kind and respectful of everyone, whether it was the brand new eighteen year old private or whomever, so they just got their head down to the job. And, and they were they were great. They were great to work with in that regard. But, but yeah, it was weird because I didn't have like I didn't have cable in college. I was I wasn't really dialed into a lot of the broader kind of sports media. So I kinda heard like I knew about this guy. But I, I didn't for me mostly, like he was he's Pat. You know, and he's, he's got a really big, but other than that he's cat. You know. And and Kevin Kevin and they're good, guys. And, and our guys you work with. And so, so, then, even that was it was weird because like you don't expect you automatically don't expect yourself to be even related to something that the media at large cares about. So then it's hard for you to wrap your mind around the fact that the media cares about it. If that makes sense because you're part of that in some way. And that just doesn't seem real, you know, when we have after deployment, you know, one of the guys on it was he was a major school at the time, and he was in between cycles or something, you know, we came back, and he had bought copies of the Sports Illustrated issue that had Pat on the cover, and that was the first time it hit me, I remember had to stock those, and he was, you know, as a not as a celebration, obviously, it was just more like, hey, I got these, like mementos for everybody because the ship had happened. But that w-. The first time it hit me where it's like, oh ship, you know, like like it was it went from being like his cognitive thing that. Oh, yeah. That was the NFL to like people are across the country dialed into this. And that's not good..

"You guys actually went back to the ambush kills on in Afghanistan tried to recreate the scenario an ultimately, you know, their investigation was that the most of the even negation in at stuff standard around, essentially the errors in the chain of command in terms of how they didn't follow protocol in terms of even reporting investigating the, the incident? I mean, I think the shooter's myself and the other guys I think we had all of one paragraph in the report, which was affected -ly. Yeah. They, they thought they were under threat, they followed. The are we they mistake innocent target and, you know, they're, they're not culpable. That was extent of it, but it took that wasn't it's all seven. I mean it was basically three years of that kind of grinding on precisely because at the point of at the point of the incident. It, it wasn't investigated properly. And because the chain of command until the truth, and so, but that it is. Yeah, there's definitely, there's definitely a strong drive in any culture like that, too. Nobody wants that to happen. You know, nobody, I don't want that to be the regimen story. You don't want that. I it's just that. I mean that's kind of the personification of the hard, right? Over the easy wrong is, is just telling truth and that's really difficult. And I say that if somebody who, who sits atop some self righteous mountain of truth telling, but it's just man, you don't do it. It just makes it worse. And then even for you, I would imagine like then that's almost like a weird way. Even if they're trying to I would imagine credit from wrong, you didn't probably feel really cared for in that moment. You felt like well whatever I'm experiencing. I don't really get to share a talk about. Because this isn't about taking care of Jack. This is about taking care of the unit, and that's not a really that's not a great place. I wouldn't think that's not a great place to be at. I mean, I got the sense like the incident, I was in was never reported in the press at all we all kept behind closed doors and I just kept my mouth shut because I wanted to keep being arranger, and go and do Rangers rights, you know. So it was. Yeah. I don't think the regiment wanted another black is, is what it comes down to the aftermath of the Pat Tillman incident. Because from the way I know enough about how the military thinks, and the way the brass would look at it. They would look down at the regiment, like, okay. You guys have there's a pattern here now like, right? What's what's going on in this unit? Yeah. It was very, very strange. Some, some of the ways that that was handled. And I just got a it's on me to I went with the flow because I also wanted it to just go away. And just move on and, and go on, do the ranger thing, of course. Yeah. Of course. Yeah, it's not something you wanna dwell on. And it's. Yeah, that's not how the story is supposed to go. And yet in some cases, that's how the story goes. And there has to be for whatever story were part of an however, stories wind up there has to be space to kind of deal with that. Good bad or indifferent. Because it's usually a mix of all of those things is there any like this is another rumor I heard over the years. Is there any truth to these stories about how like Pat tillman's diary was burned.

I told the guy next to me, and this is this is another interesting thing. So I had read, and I don't know you can tell me if this is accurate or not. I had read that Pat Tillman was killed because he stood up in the middle of the firefight. And he yelled on Pat Tillman, stop shooting. And that was when he got hit that was something I had read.
