Army to Discipline 7 in Tillman Case, ABC Reports
Posted on Jul 26, 2007
The Army is punishing seven officers for mishandling the Pat Tillman case, according to ABC News. The harshest punishment reportedly is being meted out to Lt. Gen. Philip Kensinger, who allegedly deceived investigators about when he knew the facts about Tillman’s death.
Senior defense officials tell ABC that Army Secretary Pete Geren is likely to recommend that Defense Secretary Robert Gates strip Kensinger, a three-star general, of his stars, a move that would reduce Kensinger’s pension by approximately $1,000 a month.
Army officials would not confirm the punishments and cautioned that nothing had been finalized.
