Tillman Punishment

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Military officials say the Army secretary is expected to recommend that a retired three-star general be demoted for his role in providing misleading information about the death of Army Ranger Pat Tillman.

Lieutenant General Philip Kensinger headed Army special operations. He is one of six high-ranking Army officers expected to get official reprimands for making critical errors in reporting the circumstances of the former football star's death.

Tillman was killed by friendly fire in Afghanistan in 2004.

The officials talked about the punishments being considered by Army Secretary Peter Geren on the condition that they not be identified, because they have not been made public.

The Army says no final decisions have been made, but an announcement is expected sometime next week.
