WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Former NFL player Pat Tillman was killed Thursday while serving as an Army Special Forces soldier on a mission in southeastern Afghanistan, Pentagon officials have told CNN.

Tillman, who walked away from a $3.6 million contract as a safety with the Arizona Cardinals to join the military, was in an area where numerous U.S. troops have been killed in battles with suspected al Qaeda and Taliban fighters.

He was serving as an Army Ranger, part of the Army's Special Forces. Tillman played for the Cardinals from 1998-2001.

More details are forthcoming. [emphasis supplied]

[UPDATE: Juliette has Sen. John McCain's remarks about the incident.]

Camptown Clarkie wrote a book,
Doo-da, doo-da
Made George Bush look like a mook,
Oh, de doo-da day.

Now Condi's attackin all night,
And Cheney all day
The Reich Whingers were slammed so much by this one troublin nag,
They forgot all bout Kerry. Hurray!

Oh, Clarke said Bush was obsessed with Iraq,
Doo-da, doo-da
And no Reich Whingers prevented Al Qaeda's attack,
Oh, de doo-da day.

Now Rummy's attackin all night,
And Scotty all day.
The Whingers keep calling Clarke a lying, partisan hag,
But my hero swats all their lame attacks away.

Then Clarke stunned the world with his apology,
Doo-da, doo-da.
This caused you Reich Whingers an apoplexy,
Oh, de doo-da day.

Now he's got 'em on the run all night,
And scrambling all day.
Who could have guessed that one wily, old scaliwag,
Could've mastered Resident Select Chimpy so much this way.

People like Tillman are the ones we should thank for the freedoms we have today, even the freedom to blog.
