    do the worms belch after a good meal?:

    Apparently. Lt. Col. Ralph Kauzlarich's worm dirt quote is getting a lot of play but, look, that's the way some atheists look at it, so so what? If the Tillmans are even atheists, but that hardly matters here.

    What I find impressive is that the author of Pat Tillman's first lie-packed silver star citation and the initial cover-up phase of the investigation (where Ralph investigated himself) had to ask this:

    You know what? I don't think anything will make them happy, quite honestly. I don't know. Maybe they want to see somebody's head on a platter. But will that really make them happy? No, because they can't bring their son back.

    Mary Tillman offers a simple answer to a stupid question:

    We have been asked over and over again, well, what can we do for your family? How can we appease you?

    And it makes me sick. It's not about our family. Our family will never be satisfied. We will never have Pat back. But what is so outrageous is, this isn't about Pat. This is about what they did to Pat and what they did to a nation.

    Right. Pat Tillman's death was used by his commanding officer and the chain of command ( up to Gen. Abizaid) for the real war against our opinions, where The War is won or lost, and they're not afraid to fight dirty for victory.

    Whether you're christian or an atheist the body is just worm food for this war effort, and Kauzlarich just did what good worms do. From his perspective the family digging the worms out of the ground so they can get to the truth must seem incomprehensible. They tell us lies to protect us, after all.
