Army: Confusion over Tillman's death The Army general investigating the death of Pat Tillman acknowledged that the Army knew almost immediately that he had been killed by fellow soldiers rather than enemy fire, but blamed confusing regulations — not a coverup — for its failure to tell his family what really happened until after he was buried.

Shortly after Tillman's death, the Army said he was killed while leading troops in battle, scaling a hill to ensure the safety of other U.S. soldiers following him. Days after his death, the Army awarded him the Silver Star, praising his gallantry under enemy fire. A few weeks later, the Army said he probably died as a result of so-called friendly fire.

Insurgency forcing change in Iraq strategy Military operations in Iraq have not succeeded in weakening the insurgency, and Iraq's government, with US support, is now seeking a political reconciliation among the nation's ethnic and tribal factions as the only viable route to stability.

Despite US estimates that it kills or captures between 1,000 and 3,000 insurgents a month, the number of daily attacks is going back up. Down to about 30 to 40 a day in February, attacks are now up to at least 70 per day, according to statistics of US Central Command. The insurgency has demonstrated a keen ability to shift its tactics in the face of persistent US and Iraqi battlefield victories.

EDITORIAL - Washington Post
Tobacco Sellout
SINCE TAKING office, the Bush administration has spent more than $100 million suing the tobacco industry. This week it scuttled its own case just as it was approaching judgment. The episode looks like politically inspired malfeasance, and it should be investigated.

The decision appears to be the result of political pressure, not a judgment of the legal merits of the case made by the career lawyers trying it. It was made at the political echelon of the Justice Department and imposed on the trial team -- which strongly objected

COMMENTARY - Christian Science Monitor
Smoke alarms just went off
Why did government attorneys undercut a significant penalty against big tobacco? The court must overrule them.

Cousin Brucie goes to satellite Veteran New York disc jockey Bruce Morrow, ignominiously dumped last week when WCBS-FM switched away from its oldies format, signed on Thursday with Sirius Satellite Radio. A phone call last Friday from management informed him that after 33 years as a New York institution, the station was going to a "Jack" format with a new playlist.

The announcement came on the same day that Sirius took out full-page newspaper ads in Chicago and New York plugging its satellite service to customers upset by Infinity's format changes last week at oldies stations in both cities.
