White House Claims Executive Privilege To Withhold Key Documents On Tillman Death

This just isn't right no matter which side of the political fence you sit on. This administration is claiming executive privilege to keep from the public every political decision they've ever made. They have politicised EVERYTHING in government from the judiciary branch, medical policy, birth control and how they dealt with the death of a hero. The family has a right to know the details even if those details are damaging to the White House and the Republican party. We already know he didn't die the way they said he did so what are they hiding? Is there a paper trail showing who made the decision to 'spin' his death and use it as war propaganda? Does that paper trail lead to Rove? To Bush himself? Or to President Cheney?

Two influential lawmakers investigating how and when the Bush administration learned the circumstances of Pat Tillman's friendly-fire death and how those details were disclosed accused the White House and Pentagon on Friday of withholding key documents and renewed their demand for the material.

The White House and Defense Department have turned over nearly 10,000 pages of papers _ mostly press clippings _ but the White House cited "executive branch confidentiality interests" in refusing to provide other documents.
