New Evidence Clearly Indicates Pat Tillman Was Executed

Paul Joseph Watson

Friday, July 27, 2007

Army medical examiners concluded Tillman was shot three times in the head from just 10 yards away, no evidence of "friendly fire" damage at

scene...Army attorneys congratulated each other on cover-up...Wesley Clark concludes "orders came from the very top" to murder pro-football

star because he was about to become an anti-war political icon.

Astounding new details surrounding the death of Pat Tillman clearly indicate that top brass decided to execute the former pro football star in cold blood to

prevent him from returning home and becoming an anti-war icon.

These same criminals then engaged in a sophisticated conspiracy to create a phony "friendly fire" cover story.

Shocking new facts emerged about the case last night but were bizarrely underplayed by the Associated Press under nondescript headlines like 'New Details on

Tillman's Death' -- a complete disservice to the horrific implications that the new evidence carries.

Army medical examiners were suspicious about the close proximity of the three bullet holes in Pat Tillman's forehead and tried without success to get authorities

to investigate whether the former NFL player's death amounted to a crime, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.

"The medical evidence did not match up with the, with the scenario as described," a doctor who examined Tillman's body after he was killed on the battlefield in

Afghanistan in 2004 told investigators.

The doctors - whose names were blacked out - said that the bullet holes were so close together that it appeared the Army Ranger was cut down by an M-16 fired

from a mere 10 yards or so away.

The report also states that "No evidence at all of enemy fire was found at the scene -- no one was hit by enemy fire, nor was any government equipment struck."

The article also reveals that "Army attorneys sent each other congratulatory e-mails for keeping criminal investigators at bay as the Army conducted an internal

friendly-fire investigation that resulted in administrative, or non-criminal, punishments."

So there was no evidence whatsoever of friendly fire, but the ballistics data clearly indicated that the three head shots had been fired from just 10 yards away and

then the Army tried to concoct a hoax friendly fire story and sent gloating back-slapping e mails congratulating each other on their success while preventing the

doctors from exploring the possibility of murder. How can any sane and rational individual weigh this evidence and not come to the conclusion that Tillman was

deliberately gunned down in cold blood?

The evidence points directly to it and the motivation is clear -- Tillman abandoned a lucrative career in pro-football immediately after 9/11 because he felt a

rampaging patriotic urge to defend his country, and became a poster child for the war on terror as a result. But when he discovered that the invasion of Iraq was

based on a mountain of lies and deceit and had nothing to do with defending America, he became infuriated and was ready to return home to become an anti-war

hero.

As far back as March 2003, immediately after the invasion, Tillman famously told his comrade Spc. Russell Baer, "You know, this war is so xxxxing illegal," and

urged his entire platoon to vote against Bush in the 2004 election. Far from the gung-ho gruff stereotype attributed to him, Tillman was actually a fiercely

intellectual man with the courage of his convictions firmly in place.

Tillman had even begun to arrange meetings with anti-war icons like Noam Chomsky upon his return to America before his death cut short any aspirations of

becoming a focal point for anti-war sentiment.

According to Daily Kos, Wesley Clark appeared on Keith Olbermann's Countdown last night and stated that "the orders came from the very top" to murder

Tillman as he was a political symbol and his opposition to the war in Iraq would have rallied the population around supporting immediate withdrawal.

The notion that the U.S. government gave orders for Army top brass to execute Pat Tillman in cold blood is the most damaging indictment of the Iraq war since

it began, trumping the lies about weapons of mass destruction tenfold, but if the establishment media continue to soft-peddle and steam-valve one of the biggest

stories of the century its impact will be completely diluted.

It is up to us to make this story go viral because the implications are so dire that they could act as the final death knell for the blood-soaked and illegal

occupation of Iraq and become the clarion call to bring our troops home.

Was Tillman “fragged”? Though not 100% conclusive the evidence strongly suggests he was. Was he assassinated on orders from the Bush White House? Despite the claim by Alex Jones’ sidekick, Paul Watson, that the “evidence clearly indicates” this - he presents no valid evidence to support this claim.

In his lead paragraph he said that “Wesley Clark concludes "orders came from the very top" to murder pro-football star because he was about to become an anti-war political icon” later in the “article” he cites a DailyKos entry:

According to Daily Kos, Wesley Clark appeared on Keith Olbermann's Countdown last night and stated that "the orders came from the very top" to murder Tillman as he was a political symbol and his opposition to the war in Iraq would have rallied the population around supporting immediate withdrawal
.

However if one actually reads the entry that’s not what was said (emphasis added):

Just saw on countdown [sic] that the AP reported that the Army stopped doctors from investigating if Tillman had been murdered. Shots were fired at close range and in his head.

Wesley Clark was on and believes that the orders came from the very top as Tillman was a political symbol. It was well known he was against the war in Iraq.
No indication if orders were to murder him
, but at the least to cover it up
.

The clip can be seen here the relevant portion starts about 3:30 from the beginning and as the Kos columnist indicated Clark said he thought the Pentagon was involved in the cover-up but gave no indication he thought they were involved in a conspiracy to murder the football player

Was Watson intentionally misleading or did he simply misread that? I can’t be sure but once again Jones and Watson are shown not to be credible. Watson doesn’t reference the rest of his claims that supports his theory Tillman was assassinated on orders from Washington rather than by comrades who disliked him.

He wrote, “…when he discovered that the invasion of Iraq was based on a mountain of lies and deceit and had nothing to do with defending America, he became infuriated and was ready to return home to become an anti-war hero” but none of the linked articles back this claim. He was unhappy to have been sent to Iraq but there are no indications he objected to serving to Afghanistan where he was transferred to and killed or that other than encouraging his fellow GI’s from voting for Kerrry that he was planning “to become an anti-war hero”. According to one of the articles Watson cited, his mother who has been one of the people leading the call for her son`s death to be reinvestigated said despite being critical of the Iraq war, “he supported the Afghan war”. That of course was omitted from Watson’s account.

http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file...;type=printable (The author’s paraphrasing not Ms. Tillman’s exact words)

He even “snapped at a panicky comrade under fire to shut up and stop "sniveling."”

That was supposed to have been his last words:

The chaplain [“who debriefed the entire unit days after Tillman was killed”] said that [“Spc. Bryan”] O'Neal [“who was at Tillman's side as he was killed”] told him he was hugging the ground at Tillman's side, "crying out to God, help us. And Tillman says to him, `Would you shut your (expletive) mouth? God's not going to help you; you need to do something for yourself, you sniveling
...

Hardly the words of “an anti-war hero” and good motive for a fragging. That part of course was left out of Watson’s account too even thought he cited the same article.

Watson’s only claim that might lead one to believe he was killed on orders from the White House or Pentagon was that “Tillman had even begun to arrange meetings with anti-war icons like Noam Chomsky upon his return to America” though his source only cited a single meeting with the MIT professor and made no mention of any other “meetings with anti-war icons”. I wonder how much common cause Chomsky would have found with an enthusiastic supporter of both John Kerry and the war in Afghanistan. Another article cited by Watson said the athlete was an avid reader of Chomsky as well as of Churchill. Watson’s portrayal of Tillman as a budding anti-war activist is far more of a distortion than the mass media’s initial portrayal of him as a gung-ho supporter of the war because evidence contradicting the "MSM's" version only seems to have come out after he died.

It’s hard to believe Watson so distorted the truth unintentionally. Jones and his followers like to call those who don’t believe their claims “sheeple” but the real sheeple are those who uncritically accept his and Watson’s BS.
