According to a variety of media, the tragic combat death of modern American hero Pat Tillman happened yesterday during a firefight in southern Afghanistan.
As of this posting there has been no official DOD announcement, however, 5 minutes ago Bloomberg reported the NFL confirming Tillman’s death and offered a reaction from Arizona Senator John McCain:

I am heartbroken today by the news of Pat Tillman's death. The tragic loss of this extraordinary young man will seem a heavy blow to our nation's morale, as it is surely a grievous injury to his loved ones.

One wonders, in light of what will be tremendous public interest in the death of this extraordinary young man and symbol, if DOD will perform a particularly bushian about face and reverse yesterdays reinforced ban regarding photography of soldier’s caskets returning to the United States?
