Haven't posted much about the apparent investigation into whether he was murdered. But I have a strong hunch that this nutbar column
will be getting lots of attention from the kooks.Conservative commentator James Buchanan says it´s likely. And he says the Neocons did it.
Posted to Iraq with his brother, Tillman openly voiced his contempt for the Bush administration, declaring the Iraq War was "so f …ing illegal," and he reportedly urged fellow soldiers to vote for Bush foe John Kerry in the 2004 presidential elections. And according to Tillman´s family, Tillman´s remarks weren´t just idle chatter.
Tillman had the best of both brawn and brains. He was a college graduate who subscribed to The Economist magazine, who´d kept a daily journal since high school, who passionately studied World War II history and the works of writers as diverse as Winston Churchill and radical anti-Iraq War scholar Noam Chomsky, and even had an appointment to meet with Chomsky when he returned stateside.
Three bullets in the forehead later, and Tillman wasn´t talking anti-Bush trash-talk to soldiers, declaring the Iraq War illegal, promoting Kerry for president, or meeting with Chomsky every again.
So "the Neocons" did him in. You know how it is; Leftists tend to think that reading Chomsky is a sign of brilliance; in my world it's a sign that you're a recent college graduate with a head full of mush.
As you can see here, "[c]onservative commentator James Buchanan" is a mental case
. He writes regularly for a website apparently run by David Duke
. Writing about the explosion that destroyed the golden dome in Iraq
, Buchanan opines:A bombing like this one, against the Askariya Shrine, a great Muslim cultural icon and a beautiful work of architecture by anyone’s standards, must have been done by criminals with a serious hatred for all Muslims. This atrocity was done almost certainly by the Israelis or CIA to inflame ethnic strife in Iraq.
