(AP) A Congressional Committee has concluded its investigation into the death of Army Ranger Pat Tillman. In the report they cite a lack of recollection as the reason why they can't determine the source of misinformation about the ex NFL player's death.

House Committee Members say the military knew within days that Tillman was killed by friendly fire, but waited several weeks before correcting reports that he was killed by enemy fire.

While the report doesn't assign blame, it does say the White House released information that soldiers in the field knew was untrue.
Tillman was killed in April of 2004 while serving in Afghanistan.
