In this episode, we explore the controversies surrounding the death of Pat Tillman. After leaving his NFL career, Tillman enlisted in the U.S. Army after the 9/11 attacks, only to be killed in Afghanistan in 2004. However, conspiracy theories suggest that his death wasn't accidental.
Various conspiracy theories suggest that the U.S. military and government were involved in a cover-up regarding Tillman's death. Some speculate that friendly fire was intentional because Tillman was growing disillusioned with the war, while others believe that he was assassinated for his plans to speak out against the war.
We dive into the details of these conspiracy theories and examine the evidence and motivations behind them. We also discuss the impact of Tillman's death on his family and the public perception of the war in Afghanistan.
