Retired General Reprimanded in Cover-Up after Tillman Death

The Army has censured a retired three-star general over a chain of errors that followed the friendly fire death of Pat Tillman. Now, it's up to a special panel to decide whether Lieutenant General Philip Kensinger should be stripped of his third star.

At a Pentagon news conference, Army Secretary Pete Geren said Kensinger had deceived investigators. He called the cover-up of the former pro football player's friendly-fire death the "perfect storm of mistakes, misjudgments and a failure of leadership."

Kensinger bore the brunt of the punishment. Nine other officers were criticized but not punished.
