The Associated Press reports Congressional investigators have asked a high-ranking general what punishment was given to an Army officer who investigated the death of former Arizona Cardinals S Pat Tillman and later made remarks that offended his family. The query came in a letter Wednesday, May 16, from the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. The panel's chairman, Rep. Henry Waxman, and ranking GOP member, Rep. Tom Davis, asked Gen. Carter F. Ham about remarks made by Lt. Col. Ralph Kauzlarich questioning the religious faith of Tillman's parents. During an interview with ESPN.com last year, Kauzlarich argued that the Tillman family would not accept the previous Army findings "because of the absence of Christian faith in their lives."
