WASHINGTON (AP) -- The military has found no criminal wrongdoing in the friendly fire death of Army Ranger Pat Tillman in Afghanistan, but says there were critical errors in reporting the former NFL star's death and failing to provide details to his
family.

Army and Defense Department investigators said Monday that officers looking into the incident passed along misleading and inaccurate information and delayed reporting their belief that Tillman was killed by his fellow soldiers. The investigators
recommended the Army take action against the officers.

Among those blamed were the three-star general in charge of Army special operations as well as Tillman's regimental commander.
