10 Years On, Pat Tillman and the Culture of Lies

Pat Tillman (November 6, 1976 – April 22, 2004) made a grave mistake. He joined the military. 

Then he apparently woke up to some extent. Then he was dead. 

"He was an outlier" remembered Jim Rome. Just not enough of an outlier to overcome the lies that eventually led to his demise. Not that he was alone. Tens if not hundreds of millions of people initially fell for the psyops of the new American century that was 9/11. The hook, line and sinker that reeled in the gullible. Wars for profit need young strong guys. Preferably those who act without thinking, who die without knowing exactly why.

It is thought that Tillman reached some realizations. That he wasn't all that shy about speaking about the revelations that came to him during his time in Iraq and Afghanistan.  That he kept a diary. That as soon as he got home and out of the army, he was going to warn others as to what he saw and understood.

In the wasteland of opium and corruption, a triple tap to the head ended Pat's life. Friendly fire or assassination? Pat was a military recruiter's dream and friendly fire did not fit the narrative so there was a cover up. Tillman's uniform and body armor were burned. His diary went missing. 
Tillman had naively made contact with the CIA’s Noam Chomsky to discuss his plans to reveal what he knew about the lies of Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld in the War on Terror. He was apparently also angry about the US Army’s support of the Afghan opium trade, started up by the army after the Taliban had eradicated it {nearly}one hundred percent during their four-year reign.

Pat Tillman was probably the greatest recruiting asset that the Neo-Cons had, until they sent him and Kevin {Pat's brother}from Afghanistan to Iraq in ‘03. Tillman became quite bitter and outspoken about the invasion of Iraq, figuring Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with 9/11. So they were sent back to Afghanistan, where they discovered the opium trade being protected and supported by the US Army. Now, they’re both pretty upset. Pat Tillman went from the Neo-Con dream to nightmare and needed to be shut up before he could tell America about the lies of its leaders.
For all of his years and the multitude of spoken and written words, Chomsky has done no more to end wars and US hegemony than the kid standing alone on a street corner with an anti-war sign. Could Chomsky have issued the warning to his higher ups about Pat becoming so outspoken that it would undoubtedly do harm to the neocon and zionist plans?  It is a distinct possibility.

Pat Tillman should be remembered. Not as patriot and not as a war hero but as someone who can wake up from the lies, albeit a little late. He is an example to parents and grand-parents that once you give your blessing for your man or woman/child to enter the machinery of war, it can not be taken back.

Did Pat die in vain? Yes, just like all the others of the last 100 years who believed the leaders and the propaganda and marched off to war so the blood money could be made.

If the real story of Tillman prevents a few of our young  from aiding and abetting the enemy within, then maybe his death was not meaningless. It is up to us to make sure the other side gets told.

Wars will be stopped only when soldiers refuse to fight, when workers refuse to load weapons onto ships and aircraft, when people boycott the economic outposts of Empire that are strung across the globe. ”

  1. Pat Tillman and General Patton both murdered by the military to silence them. Both kept diaries that disappeared. Tillman was initially naive, Patton wasn't. He was already a pro, knowing about criminals in the military in league with criminals in politics. Patton might have even run for President if the genocidal, criminal fraud General Eisenhower hadn't been already picked. Rising in rank is not about ethics and morals, and military lifers live for war action. Too late, Tillman learned about the military, but pro-football success isn't exactly built on morals and ethics either even if one does see false heroes put on cereal boxes. That is propaganda! Would Congressional liars and corrupt Presidents be viewed as heroes on cereal boxes? Maybe, for some.

  2. Once I read a couple of Chomsky books I figured him for a kept mind. You would naturally want to be a linguist and toss in some epitaph such as "smartest man", a nice liberal sinecure, and the world is your unimpeded stage. Pretty please, soldiers come home.

  3. I don't feel sorry for Timan in the least. I would, however, like to know how many Afgans and Iraqis he killed as Ranger in the U.S. Army. Rangers being an especially agressive group, I'm fairly certain it was more than just a few souls.

  4. Current claims about who are "terrorists" in America, what are hoaxes, who are fakes (crisis actors) , and what persons can be believed as real "truthers" in alternative news and who cannot, abound. Only how do we identify what are really lies and who are the real disinformation liars? Pat Tillman was stuck in a war zone, was limited in who he could contact, and undoubtedly well watched, perhaps his communications were tapped and censored. Here in the US we can get info from many sources fairly well. One thing we know for sure is that President Obama has decided that he has the absolute right to order a military drone(s) kill of anyone he claims to be a "terrorist" anywhere, even in America. We have heard Sen. Reid call the Bundy ranch defending persons "terrorists," and he is not alone in this. Even alt-news persona are condemning the Bundy persons, while totally ignoring actual legal and factual information, as are either shills or just plain ignorant minded. The public in general is just getting MSM lies as usual. If another Waco should happen, it won't necessarily be just a ground action. Obama can order drone missile/bomb attacks be made there, and don't think he wouldn't. And don't think the military wouldn't do it. This Bundy ranch crisis along with the Flt. 370 hi-jacking to Diego Garcia is definitely some alt-newsers to shed their "good guys" pretense.

  5. "If your son is a soldier, then you have no son. If your daughter is a soldier, then you have no daughter. If your father is a soldier, then you have no father. If your mother is a soldier, then you are a motherless child.

    Soldiers are not human. Humans have millions of choices, but soldiers have only two; to kill or to die. A living soldier is a killing one. Even if he doesn't realize it, he is always ready to kill. It's his raison d'etre.

    Sometimes they kill other soldiers, who, like themselves, have only two choices. But most often they kill humans - people with millions of choices.

    When you say, 'Welcome home' , to a soldier coming alive from war, you say it not to a hero but to a murderer. If you want to see the real heroes, go visit a prison they have been thrown into for having refused to kill.

    When you are told soldiers are there to defend you, ask them to show you a single part of a gun which is made to defend. It has none. Guns are made with a single purpose: to kill.

    You thought they only kill 'others'. But 'others' have already been killed. Remember, 'War is over, if you want it'? You could have stopped by just wanting to, but you haven't. So it's your turn now." Paul Bondarovski 2008

    I realize, his statements can be a tad controversial to say the least. And it probably is not going over very well with the patriotic crowd. But he is not talking about hunting rifles. Jack London had this to say about soldiers in 1915: "The good soldier never tries to distinguish right from wrong. He never thinks; never reasons; he only obeys."

    Which reminds me of the USS Ronald Reagan where the crew was made to clean the ship with soap and water of radiation after trying to help out at Fukushima, which wasn't even a war.



  6. A story and seems to have mysterious things in there, but everything can be answered and understood more. Tillman.

  7. define Worship...

    define Serve....

    do Americans SERVE and WORSHIP the G*D of Truth....?
    get the mug shots of the "creatures" that own the MEDIA & Print the CURRENCY
    see a pattern ?

    Cui Bono ?


  8. Propaganda, lies and rubble rousing on a grand scale of the jews against christians or non jews to lead us in civil wars again in the end. Jews are foreign nationals parasite israelis having no loyalty for their host and ethnic people but only for jewish national zionism.We non jews are just cattle for them. And this is only one atrocity sample written in the most holy book of judaism the babylonian talmud and the luciferian cabbala.

  9. Chomsky's is a master of obsfucation - I found a quote from a reader http://en.bookfi.org/book/750987

    "I'm a scientist with a background in (analytic) philosophy, and am used to technical writing and complex ideas; I picked up this book on John Searle's recommendation in an article in the New York Review of Books. I don't know what Searle was thinking; I found these lectures impenetrable.

    Chomsky's examples are far from illuminating and get bogged down in details -- examples of phonological or syntactical transformations involve piles upon piles of poorly introduced material, and it's frustrating to get a page and a half through some dense presentation only to discover that he then invokes some principle you've never heard of and he doesn't explain. It's claimed that these lectures are for a "general" audience, which I think must mean "a general audience of linguists".I came out the other end with barely more understanding of Chomsky's linguistics than I did coming in -- after many hours of trying to parse his rather tortured prose."

    Unfortunately, there are many "chosen" in high places that cannot be trusted - I just got thru listening to Karen Hudes (Jewish, World Bank) on Gnostic Media http://www.gnosticmedia.com/interview-karen-hudes-world-bank-centralization-corruption-197/ The host, Jan Irvin, pretty much summed it up:

    "She avoided directly answering most of my questions and was stunned that I could see through her red herrings. I ask her about Zionism, she tells me about Jesuits and aliens and cone heads...Offer false premises to send people on a wild goose chase, discussing not the crimes of the world bank, but cone heads. Her offering of evidence for my requirement for onus of proof was circumstantial and laughable at best...It’s just like David Icke, offer 70% truth and 30% BS to keep people from having real solutions, and then offer solutions that aren’t really solutions at all"

    1. Karen Hudes needs to just fade away. I don't think the 70% truth even applies to her.

  10. Excellent.

    And I like the quote: Wars will be stopped only when soldiers refuse to fight, when workers refuse to load weapons onto ships and aircraft...

  11. Cliven Bundy MSM VIDEO HOAX! Edited to LIE!

    HOAX EXPOSED: Full Clip Of Cliven Bundy’s Non-Racist, Pro-Black, Pro-Mexican, Anti-Government Remarks Vs. NYTimes’ Deceptively Edited Version
    Watch Bundy explain how we need to keep things from going backwards for blacks, and how the Federal government has created a neo-slave class via entitlement dependency that is so bad it is arguably worse than plantation slavery was. It is 100% clear that Cliven Bundy is not saying that blacks should be slaves picking cotton, but that the Federal government has created conditions for them so terrible, that their current situation may actually be worse."

    1. There is at least one fake truth-siter who can't hate and smear Cliven Bundy enough, even after the propaganda hoax has been exposed. Forget the real criminal and illegal actions of the government against a legal, land owning white man and his family, go for a white-man kill instead! That is the government agenda being advocated out of pure hatred, no matter who eventually is affected if the government should forcibly succeed in Nevada with the Bundys. Do we really want the rights of the Constitution upheld for every American, like them, or not? Prove it in public actions and words , or shred it for all to witness as Obama's criminal gang has.

    2. If the possible Christian-based morality of Cliven Bundy is offensive to someone who has a fiercely opposing moral lifestyle philosophy, a personal smear attack is quite often the result in media reaction. That is the way jewish-run media and entertainment works. So it is not difficult to spot which side of the information fence an opinionist is working for. The effort to eliminate patriot backing for the Bundy legal rights warfare is definitely on a hard drive kill.
