Glencoe, Tillman and Mimetic Desire

I watched “The Tillman Story” for Veteran’s Day.  What struck me most were the sorts of institutional processes associated with the after action reporting of events.  If I have time I’d like to explore the parallels between the investigations of the Tillman incident and the Glencoe massacre (1692)  through the lens of Girard’s concept of mimetic desire.  If I don’t get around to that I at least wanted to put that thought out there.
