The examination of the now increasingly disturbing death of former football star Pat Tillman has taken a darker turn in a study by Christopher Goodwin for The First Post Online Magazine. In his examination of the facts now known there is an implied conclusion that Tillman may have been murdered by the Army. Here are a few brief extracts:
Was Pat Tillman, the most famous American soldier to die in the post-9/11 wars, murdered by his own men or assassinated by a US government black ops team to stop him from speaking out against the war in Iraq?
After serving in Iraq, Pat Tillman, then just 27, died in south-eastern Afghanistan on the evening of April 22, 2004. He had been shot in the forehead three times. A week later Tillman was posthumously awarded the Silver Star by the Pentagon.
Within hours of his death, army top brass knew there had been no engagement with the enemy and that Tillman had been killed by bullets fired from American guns.
A soldier who served with Tillman in Iraq in 2003 recalled him saying: “You know, this war is so fucking illegal.” Tillman’s favourite author was anti-war philosopher Noam Chomsky and he had arranged to meet him on his next trip home.
These brief extracts are only a hint of the facts concisely reported in this compelling piece, the reading of which will shake you.
