It’s looking more and more like Pat Tillman was murdered — executed if you will. The incredible revelations were revealed in a new AP story that doesn’t draw any conclusions, but whose fresh details paint a picture of an Army-wide cover-up and an execution-style assassination. From Yahoo:

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.

10 yards away? How do you fuck up so badly that you manage to put 3 bullets — in a tight grouping — in the head of a fellow Ranger? It doesn’t seem very likely, especially when there was zero evidence of enemy fire. That means that they were not in the fog of war and the confusion that follows from it.

It’s also worth noting that the Tillman story has changed several times. First, he was killed by enemy fire. Then he was killed by friendly-fire. Now it seems the “friendly” might have been aiming right at him.

Who would want Tillman dead, and why? Prison Planet has some theories:

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 fucking 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.

This is the last thing the Bush/Cheney administration needed. Could they have possibly given the order to assassinate Tillman and then cover it up?

Former presidential candidate Wesley Clark said he thought the orders to whack Tillman must’ve come from the very top. Tillman could’ve become an anti-war voice much more resonant among men and conservatives than Cindy Sheehan. He represented a threat precisely because of his service, his life story and his fierce, questioning intelligence. The latest (and most pathetic) propaganda seems designed to paint Pat as an atheist to undermine America’s trust in him:

But the latest documents give a different account from a chaplain who debriefed the entire unit days after Tillman was killed.

The chaplain said that O’Neal 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 …”

If there was no enemy fire, why were they on the ground? How do we know this account wasn’t completely fabricated? I think Congress needs to talk to the doctors and investigators who attempted to pursue the homicide angle, but were stymied.

How come all of these anti-war people tend to die mysteriously?

    Let’s see… so you “had known” that Tillman was an athiest “at least a year ago”? How interesting, considering that he was killed in 2004, (3 years ago), and that the channels or sources through which you would have “known” that about him are, at best, HIGHLY suspect, given what new information is being unveiled.(VERY good point bringing up the question of WHY a soldier would have been “hugging the ground” next to Tillman in utter fear, IF THERE WAS NO ENEMY ACTIVITY IN THE AREA, btw)All that aside, should it even matter what his religious beliefs (or lack thereof are? Evidence is highly supportive if the fact that he was murdered by the people he had been trained to have trust in, his fellow soldiers, and that it was covered up for a length of time by his fellow soldiers, and that is so many fucking levels of WRONG, regardless of what his personal beliefs are!If the U.S. Military thought they were suffering from a decrease in enlistment levels, this sure as hell isn’t going to help the common man believe that signing up is a good idea. But if that side effect is what it will take to end those senseless, pointless wars, than so be it.

  3. To sum up my view of this event- The White House and the Pentagon didn’t want Pat to be more outspoken when he returns to America as a bigger athlete celebrity who turned down a lucrative contract with NFL to serve the country.The U.S. government betrayed Pat by using him as a propaganda tool, before and after the death. U.S. government and military officers at the top level are complicit in the homicide of Pat Tillman who merely served the country only to be assassinated and desecrated as a poster boy for U.S. military propaganda.It’s not a conspiracy. It’s a fact Pat Tillman was murdered to *silence* him. First the Pentagon claimed Taliban fighters killed Pat in the ambush battle then Pentagon admitted it was made up to serve as propaganda for the mainstream media to brainwash the public. Now Pentagon seek scapegoats while superior officers (“now- resigned” Rumsfeld, etc) still operate without enduring consequence.Bush/Cheney White House, Rumsfeld and the cigar-stomping buddies at the Pentagon and the Neocons at the think tanks Counsel on Foreign Relations, American Enterprise Institute, Project for the New American Century (see the document “< HREF="" REL="nofollow">Rebuilding America’s Defenses<>: Strategy, Forces and Resources for a New Century”), The Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies (document “< HREF="" REL="nofollow">A Clean Break<>:A New Strategy for Securing the Realm”, Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (per Colin Powell’s < HREF="" REL="nofollow">claim<>), etc can go to Hell for being traitors.Justice will be served when the culprits are detained, prosecuted and hung at the gallows for war crimes, just like Nuremberg.Source links that analyze the incident and the cover-up-< HREF="" REL="nofollow">Was Hero Pat Tillman Murdered by Neocons?<>< HREF="" REL="nofollow">Pat Tillman: Killed by Friendly Fire or Executed by His Own Government?<>

    Do you really have nothing better to do than drum up theories about someone who chose to serve a cause greater than himself over an endeavor fraught with ego, fame and fortune?

    Go back to your pathetic little lives and shitty indie “political punk” band.

    You fuckers just love to hear yourselves talk. Mental masturbation…
