Pat Tillman, famous American Football player who joined the US army eight months after the 9/11 attacks, became a poster-child for the "War on Terror". Unfortunately for the US establishment, when Tillman discovered that the invasion of Iraq was built on a foundation of lies and saw first-hand the destruction brought to Iraq by "Operation Iraqi Freedom", he was prepared to return home and become an anti-war figure.
As far back as March 2003, immediately after the invasion, Tillman 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. Tillman had even begun to arrange meetings with anti-war icons like Noam Chomsky upon his return to America. On April 22nd, 2004, he was killed in action by friendly fire while on patrol in Afghanistan, where he had been re-deployed.
The Associated Press came out with this report 2 days ago: 'New Details on Tillman's Death', demolishing the official, accidental "friendly fire" explanation.
As well as the suspicious proximity of the three bullet holes in Tillman's forehead, leading doctors to conclude that he had been killed by an M-16 fired from just 10 yards away, and the fact that no other person, nor any government equipment was hit by enemy fire, new documents reveal 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."
This again reveals the true colours of the felons behind the Iraq War. They claim to be spreading freedom and democracy, yet they do it by means of aggressively silencing and in this case literally killing dissent.
