NBC has confirmed the Pentagon Inspector General report finds that nine army officers, including as many as four generals - knew that former NFL star Pat Tillman was killed by friendly fire in Afghanistan in April 2004, but neglected to share his cause of death with Tillman's family until weeks after his nationally televised memorial service.

Update: Officials: Nine to be held to account on Tillman.

King: When you first heard that they hid these irregularities, were you outraged?

Plummer: It just made you feel kinda sick that they’d cover up something like that to–for whatever reason. We were all led to believe he died in leading his troops up the hill and then they come tell us it wasn’t–it was friendly fire. What can you do– you’re at their mercy and..you just feel for the family…

His brother also had spoke out against this administration and the war....

Can you help us out?
