Come on now: WHO KILLED THIS MAN AND WHY????
by Allen L. Roland
With Seymour Hersh's revelation of an executive assassination ring that reported directly to Dick Cheney now confirmed by former Cheney aide John Hannah ~ it's time to re-open the investigation of Pat Tillman's questionable death by friendly fire which was stonewalled by both the Bush administration and the Pentagon generals: Allen L Roland
This is not an April Fools joke ~ Yesterday, the American Progress Report wrote that Former Cheney national security aide John Hannah confirmed Seymour Hersh's account of an executive assassination ring as being ' Certainly true '.
Also reported yesterday, CNN interviewed Hersh and former Cheney national security aide John Hannah. Although he expressed regret for revealing the story (calling it a "dumb-dumb"), Hersh stood by his initial statements.
"I'm sorry, Wolf, I have a lot of problems with it," he said about the assassination scheme. "I know for sure...the idea that we have a unit that goes around, without reporting to Congress...and has authority from the President to go into the country without telling the CIA station chief or the ambassador and whack somebody," said Hersh. Hannah replied that Hersh's account of the assassination scheme "is not true." Yet, in the same breath, when asked about a "list" of assassination targets, Hannah largely echoed Hersh's statements. Hannah said that "troops in the field" are given "authority" to "capture or kill certain individuals" who are perceived as a threat. "That's certainly true," said Hannah. http://pr.thinkprogress.org/2009/03/pr20090331
Could one of those 'certain individuals' have been Pat Tillman, former NFL football star and Iraq war poster boy, who was about to go public with his anti-war views and support of John Kerry in 2004 during a Presidential election campaign ?
Pat Tillman's questionable death on April 22, 2004 was stonewalled by top Pentagon Generals until the freedom of Information Act brought it to light . What were they hiding ?
The documents show that officers made erroneous initial reports that Tillman was killed by enemy fire, destroyed critical evidence and initially concealed the truth from Tillman's brother, also an Army Ranger, who was near the attack on April 22, 2004, but did not witness it. What were they hiding ?
Here's my column dated August 4th, 2007 along with the known facts ( courtesy of RJ Eskow, Huffington Post ) entitled TRUTH ABOUT TILLMAN / MURDER'S NOT 'FRIENDLY FIRE'. http://blogs.salon.com/0002255/2007/08/04.html
Read it and then you decide if Cheney was capable of not only outing Valerie Plame but eliminating a hero who was about to discredit his illegal war and occupation of Iraq ~ as well as upset his plans to steal the 2004 election.
RE-OPEN PAT TILLMAN INVESTIGATION
