From Josh Mitteldorf:
Though I have no firsthand knowledge, I’ve seen enough research to find it plausible that the truth was that Tillman was murdered by a military firing squad because the Bush Administration saw his potential to become a potent spokesman for the anti-war movement.
Here’s that piece (from July, 2007):
New Evidence Clearly Indicates Pat Tillman Was Executed
Army medical examiners concluded Tillman was shot three times in the head from just 10 yards away, no evidence of “friendly fire” damage at scene, Army attorneys congratulated each other on cover-up, Wesley Clark concludes “orders came from the very top” to murder pro-football star because he was about to become an anti-war political icon.

Astounding new details surrounding the death of Pat Tillman clearly indicate that top brass decided to execute the former pro football star in cold blood to prevent him from returning home and becoming an anti-war icon.
These same criminals then engaged in a sophisticated conspiracy to create a phony “friendly fire” cover story.
