Defense Department officials spoke to reporters about the findings of an inspector general’s report that found the Army had committed “critical errors” in judgment in handling the “friendly fire” death of Corporal Patrick Tillman, a former pro football player. They also recommended that four Army generals and five lower-ranking officers face “corrective action” for serious violations, including making false and misleading statements about what they knew about the Tillman death, as well as inaccuracies in recommending Tillman, 27, for a Silver Star, the Army’s third-highest combat award. The briefing also included a video reenactment of the events surrounding the friendly-fire incident. close
