Aaron Rodgers Tells Tucker Carlson That U.S. Gov’t ‘Confiscated’ Pat Tillman’s Journal After Death in Iraq

New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers is calling attention to reports that the U.S. government seized Pat Tillman’s personal diary after he was killed in a 2004 friendly fire in Afghanistan.

In an interview with former Fox News star Tucker Carlson, Mr. Rogers brought up reports that government officials had removed the diary of a former Arizona Cardinal who was killed in combat in the mountains of Afghanistan.

Mr Rodgers called Tillman one of his heroes and insisted the former player’s death was “very suspicious”.

“We know he died in a friendly fire,” Rogers acknowledged. But after his death, he added, it became questionable, “I questioned the way the body was handled afterwards, the uniform, the seizure of his final diary, etc.” He used his death to support his war propaganda. ”

From there, Rogers argued that “many” heroes throughout American history “questioned” government.

But Carlson interjected that he had never heard of the government confiscating Tillman’s diary.

“His uniform was burned and his diary was confiscated,” Rogers said. “It’s in Jon Krakauer’s book, ‘Where Men Win Glory,’ which is a great book.”

The Jets QB went on to explain that Tillman was shot by his men when he became separated from them, who mistook each other for Taliban members and began firing.

Rogers added that he brought up Tillman’s story because “there are a lot of people who really love this country and have been disenfranchised,” adding that Carlson was “betrayed by their leaders.” .

Years after his death, Tillman’s wife implored everyone to stop using her husband’s death as a political agenda.
