"A retired three-star general criticized for misleading investigators probing the controversial death of Cpl. Pat Tillman could be stripped of a star and face a decrease in retirement pension," Pentagon officials tell CNN.
"Retired Lt. Gen. Phillip Kensinger’s three-star rank could be cut to two stars, according to Army officials," CNN reported Thursday morning.
