US Army kills star recruit

This is perhaps a new low in US military cynicism. A star all-American recruit, an ex-football player who gives up his millions to fight in the War on Terr-ur, is shot and killed by own side. So what do they do? They tell his parents, and the world, he was killed fighting the Taliban. And pray the story doesn't get out, thereby destroying your recruiting campaigan (which may as well be called Project Cannon Fodder.)

It has got out.

Sickening. His parents must be devastated.

I wonder if the US media are covering this? They are usually remarkably mute on such matters, for fear of being accused of the crimethink of 'anti-Americanism'.
