Who done it? - WonketteIt's almost too depressing to mention again, but let's recap the Pat Tillman revelations from Army medical examiners and internal Pentagon reports released last week and find out what happens when famous football stars turned Army Heroes become anti-war critics:


* He was shot three times in the forehead at close range with an American M-16.

* This was after he was shot in the chest, legs and hand.

* And this was after he screamed to the "friendlies" that he was Pat Tillman and please stop shooting him.

* But they didn't; they executed him.

* They were Americans.

* There wasn't even an "enemy" around; not only was nobody shot by "enemy fire," no equipment was shot by "enemy fire."

* "Members of Tillman's unit burned his body armor and uniform in an apparent attempt to hide the fact that he was killed by friendly fire."

* Army medical examiners tried to get a criminal investigation opened, but they were shut down.

* The Army brass who conspired to shut down any criminal investigation into the U.S. assassination of Pat Tillman sent "congratulatory e-mails" to each other after shutting down the snoops.

* The Pentagon heavily promoted Tillman's enlistment and service as both a recruitment tool and a domestic propaganda tool.

* The Pentagon maintained for long after his murder that Tillman died in combat, finally admitting to his family that "friendly fire" killed him -- which wasn't exactly true, either.

* Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Kauzlarich, who commanded Tillman's base in Afghanistan at the time of his assassination, dismissed Tillman's family's attempts to find out what happened. Why? Because Pat Tillman was an atheist, like his family, so they were having "a hard time letting it go."

* In his writings -- Tillman wrote constantly in letters and diaries and e-mails -- the NFL star who became an Army Ranger after 9/11 had concluded the Afghanistan War was fake and the Iraq War was a criminal setup.

* The Pentagon still has his diary that he kept with him in Afghanistan, where he was killed, and they won't release it to his family.

* Tillman had even arranged a meeting with anti-war icon Noam Chomsky about how to go public with a veterans-against-the-war movement.

* Such a movement would've had an interesting effect on the Iraq Occupation and the then-upcoming 2004 election; Tillman had already been encouraging his fellow soldiers to vote against Bush.

* Just today, Donald Rumsfeld refused to testify on the subject of Tillman's assassination before Congress on Wednesday.

* White House Counsel Fred Fielding has, of course, already "refused to issue certain documents to the committee because of executive privilege."

* What is the White House doing with "certain documents" about Pat Tillman's murder?

* Says Pat Tillman Sr.: "The administration clearly was using this case for its own political reasons. This cover-up started within minutes of Pat's death, and it started at high levels. This is not something that people in the field do."

If the facts are against you, argue the law. If the law is against you, argue the facts. If the law and the facts are against you, pound the table and yell like hell. And if that doesn't work, just make shit up.

Talking hairpiece Jay Sekulow went on Chris Cuomo's CNN show Wednesday night to barf out the latest Trumpland nonsense on the Russian WITCH HUNT. Remember way back in May, 2017 when Donald Trump told Lester Holt about that hilarious time he fired James Comey to murder the Russia investigation?

"I was going to fire Comey knowing there's no good time to do it. And in fact when I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said, 'you know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story, it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won.'"

Did you think that meant he actually fired Comey TO MURDER THE RUSSIA INVESTIGATION? Watch and learn, kids!

In the words of the great Tammy Wynette, sometimes it's hard to be a woman. This week has been such a time for many of us out there, what with the impending prospect of seeing yet another sex predator who wants to take away our reproductive rights getting confirmed to the highest court in the land. Oh, it's almost like we, and our bodily autonomy, don't even matter at all.

Thankfully, several conservative columnists have graciously taken the time to explain to the rest of us why we should stand by their man. Not for his good, but for our own. Because it will be empowering. So come on gals, let's switch out our sneakers for pumps like the the working gals in 1980s movies, set up our desk salads, and just really lean in to see what they have to say!

First up, we've got Catherine Glenn Foster over at The Federalist, who wants us to know that losing our reproductive rights will empower us beyond our wildest dreams, according to the actual title of her essay.
