Smith: An Appalling Example of Hate

May 3, 2004 - Rep. Smith released the following statement today:

"The publication today by MSNBC and Slate magazine of a 'comic strip' by Ted Rall that mocks former NFL player and Army Ranger Pat Tillman is an appalling example of the hate that consumes some opponents of the war on terror in Iraq.

"Pat Tillman's commitment to duty, honor and country will always be remembered despite the actions of a few on the extremist fringe. His sacrifice reminds us that heroism transcends the athletic field."

Rep. Smith is a member of the House Judiciary Committee and the Select Committee on Homeland Security.
