Was Pat Tillman assassinated to prevent him from coming home to expose the fact that our troops have been ordered to guard, and even help produce and store the opium of Afghan warlords? Was it also because he had been corresponding with Noam Chomsky and was planning on returning to the US to help reinvigorate the anti-war movement?

Here's what Pat Tillman knew about and wanted to talk about to the US media:

A Marine commander pretends that the Afghan poppy growers will soon be growing vegetables, and Geraldo Rivera participates in the ruse:

Wayne Madsen, interviewed by Alex Jones, gives a different account:

Also check out the video clips at this site:, which in turn reflect and confirm this report from the Daily Mail in London:

"Is it coincidence that after more than three years it has been discovered that there were never-before-mentioned US snipers in the Ranger group following Tillman's? Could there have been a secret sniper on a mission to Afghanistan to assassinate the Army's poster boy?

Or perhaps three assassins, because as a general rule snipers fire in single shots, from specially tuned rifles, rather than in bursts of three.

Could the likelihood that Tillman (who had been corresponding with Noam Chomsky) was going to become a voice for the anti-war movement be why his journal, which he'd kept since age 16, went missing? It disappeared, along with most of his possessions, two days after he died.

"It's time to really ask who ordered the assassination of Pat Tillman," wrote blogger Josh Swiller on The Huffington Post, a mainstream website.

First there were tales of Tillman having a personal altercation with another member of his squad, and then there were the stories of Tillman demanding to know why all the poppy fields were so huge, growing so well, and "so well protected.'

What gives it away to me was the constant waffling of "the truth" and the final accounting that Tillman had been killed with three M16 .223 rounds to his forehead fired at close range. Tillman and his murderer must have looked each other in the eyes!

I think Tillman had been asking too many questions and wanted to know why we were doing nothing (except protecting) the many vast fields planted with opium poppies in Afghanistan. And he got murdered for it. The US Army and other organizations continue to cover up the real story behind Ranger Pat Tillman's murder."

But could the CIA really stoop to the level of arranging for U.S. Marines to help protect opium poppy fields? Here's your answer, including photographs:
