Oversight Committee calls up Rumsfeld for hearing on Tillman death

Published: Monday July 16, 2007

The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform announced Monday morning that it has invited former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and other ex-Bush military officials to testify on the friendly fire death of former professional football player and Army Corporal Pat Tillman.

"On Wednesday, August 1, 2007...the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform will hold a hearing entitled 'The Tillman Fratricide: What the Leadership of the Defense Department Knew,'" stated a press release from the Committee of Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA). "The hearing will examine what senior Defense Department officials knew about U.S. Army Corporal Patrick Tillman's death by fratricide."

In addition to Rumsfeld, the Committee has invited General Richard Myers (Ret.), former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, former Central Command head Gen. John Abizaid (Ret.), and three officers from the US Special Operations Command.

1. And they will all refuse to show up. The Dems will then huff
and puff until they pass out from hyperventilating.

2. I almost choked when I heard that they used EP to
protect whatever it is they are trying to hide. Let's hope that if Rummy doesn't show up, they vote him in contempt too, and make it stick!
