RAW STORY has learned that the former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld will testify at a Wednesday hearing on the friendly fire death of Army Specialist and former NFL player Pat Tillman.

"In a late breaking development, Secretary Rumsfeld will appear before the Oversight Committee tomorrow," stated a release from the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

The release was confirmed by the Oversight Committee's Republican staff.

Earlier, RAW STORY reported that Rumsfeld had "a conflict," and had submitted answers to questions for the record.

No explanation was available at press time for Rumsfeld's change of heart.
