Nothing but the truth
So, the president now says he doesn't remember when he first learned that friendly fire was suspected in the death of Army Ranger Pat Tillman in Afghanistan in April 2004. He may not actually recall, but that is disingenuous at best. His staff writes down anything and everything that happens to him in a day; all he has to do is check his own records. I guess the truth is that Bush was told about this before his May 2004 speech at the White House correspondents dinner in which he mentioned Tillman's sacrifice but did not discuss how the former football star had died. Congress is investigating whether Bush lied about the Tillman case. Gee, the Bush White House lying? Say it ain't so!
