The Ballad of Pat Tillman posted as free mp3 SoundCloud song for Pat Tillman's 41st Birthday

"THE BALLAD OF PAT TILLMAN" is now a free mp3 song download. Or you could share the link that was posted at SoundCloud by Broadside Balladeer in tribute for what would have been Pat Tillman's 41st Birthday, Nov 6th.

Pat Tillman would have been 41 this year on Nov 6, 2017. 
(RIP 11-06-1976 to 4-22-2004)

Pat Tillman was a famous Arizona football star for the University of Arizona and for the Arizona Cardinals professional team. After the attacks of 9/11 he felt compelled to enlist in the US Army to fight in the “war on terror” based on the "official story" of 9/11.

“He believed the ‘official story’ Bush told of the attack… to take the ‘war on terror’ to Afghanistan and Iraq”. His friends and family reported after his death that he had been questioning the legality of the wars. He told some of them that he might become active in the peace movement should he be able to make it home.

Pat Tillman had enlisted with his brother Kevin in the US Army Rangers. They served together in Iraq & Afghanistan before Pat was killed. The Pentagon made up a phony "glory story" about Tillman's death to continue to use him as a recruitment poster boy. The circumstances of his death became extremely controversial as the Tillman family pressed on for the truth. The story changed from a combat "glory story" to a death by "friendly fire" story, but not until after the funeral that Army brass participated in.

Even later, the Army coroner's report was released to the Associated Press. That report said that Pat Tillman died by "3 bullets to the forehead at 10 yards range". The last story was either greeted with ridicule or completely ignored by the corporate press.

Shortly after the 9/11 "terrorist" attacks, the famous Arizona football hero from San Jose, California, enlisted with his brother Kevin in the US Army Rangers. He served in Iraq & Afghanistan before being killed. The Pentagon made up a phony story about Tillman's death to continue to use him as a recruitment poster boy. The circumstances of his death became extremely controversial as the Tillman family pressed on for the truth. The story changed from a combat "glory story" to a death by "friendly fire" story.

Ballad of Pat Tillman


Pat Tillman was a kind and a caring little boy
He brought his mom and pop a lot o’ laughter, pride, and joy
They tried to teach their son how to tell the right from wrong
How not to be a bully just because you’re big and strong

Young Tillman was a legendary famous football star
He was handsome. He was humble, and admired from afar
He made a lot o’ big plays for his Arizona team…
And he made a lot of money in the American dream!

But after Nine-Eleven, he had to throw it all away
To fight those “evil doers” who could kill in such a way
When the Towers and the Pentagon were scenes of blood and death
Pat Tillman swore to avenge them or to breathe his dyin’ breath

Chorus: DDCC / EmEmB7B7 / CCGG / DDEmEm

So remember Patrick Tillman when those flags are all displayed
How the Empire stole “Old Glory” for a fear and hate parade!
Yes, remember Patrick Tillman! The many like him lies have made!
And Hell has no fury like a patriot betrayed!

Bridge: CCGG/ DDB7B7/ CCGG/ DDEmEm

He believed the “official story” Bush told of the attack
To take the “war on terror” to Afghanistan and Iraq
He started asking questions from those far-off battlefields
He was reading Noam Chomsky… to his mother he revealed

On that fateful day when those bullets cut him down
Well, he was hailed a hero in every little town
The Pentagon exploited him as a recruitment poster boy
Made up a phony story for the media to deploy

His parents at the funeral were torn with grief and strife
They were used just like young Patrick who’d just lost his only life
The tragic truth was not revealed! It was “friendly murder”, not the foe!
They were lied to like the “hero” of the propaganda show


Bridge: CCGG/ DDB7B7/ CCGG/ DDEmEm

They were roundly castigated when they dared to tell aloud
How their son investigated…How that also made them proud
How he planned to work for peace, if he’d ever make it back
Pious pundits called them “traitors” in a wolf pack attack

Pat Tillman was a legendary famous football star
He was handsome. He was humble, and admired from afar
He made a lot of forays for his Army Ranger team…
But Patrick died for Bush’s lies…For a nightmare, not a dream!

Alive he might be helping take the treason team apart
He was bravely asking questions, yes, and he was very smart
If Nine-Eleven Truth reveals a home-made psy-war raid…
Then this phony “war on terror” ‘s just a cover-up charade! (chorus)

(Ending: Repeat last chorus line and end on Em flourish or fade.)

Cheney's in the Bunker - Songwriter Cites Footnotes to Scholarly Research on the Crimes of 9/11/01

Cheney's in the Bunker was written in 2005 by Vic Sadot after reading page 201 of David Ray Griffin's critique of the official conspiracy story released in 2004. The 9/11 Commission Report told a story of 19 named Muslims who had allegedly been able to overcome the trillion dollar US intelligence and military apparatus to hijack 4 jets; to take down 3 World Trade Center buildings with 2 planes; to crash another jet in rural Pennsylvania fields; and to attack the US central military command's accounting department at the Pentagon a day after Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and Pentagon Comptroller Dov Zackheim declared on 9/10/01 "a war on the bureaucracy" to find the missing 2.3 trillion dollars!

There is much to say about 9/11, but here in this "Truth Troubadour" blog in this 16th year of prodigious research and reports that have been published by world class scholars, let us focus for a moment on the Vice President who was in the Presidential bunker at some very disputed time on the morning of 9/11/01. David Ray Griffin is professor emeritus at Claremont School of Theology. The professor is a master logician and detective. Plus, he's articulate, genial, and funny! The opposite image of Alex Jones to brand the 9/11 Truth movement with. Thanks to folks like David Ray Griffin, I overcame my fears, and cited him as the source of my information, and released this song in a public way on 9/11/11 on a CD titled "9/11 Truth & Justice Songs". Below the lyrics you will see footnotes for this song.

The Lies of 9/11 Miracle Workers: A Review of David Ray Griffin’s book Bush And Cheney: How They Ruined America And The World” by Edward Curtin. Posted August 27, 2017 at Aletho News

Janice Mathews was a key organizer of a conference called the D.C. Emergency Truth Convergence on July 22 and 23, 2005 that my brother Rob and I got invited to sing for at American University. I sang at a 9/11 Truth rally in Lafayette Square across from the White House too. I sang "Mad Cowboy Disease" and "Are You A Citizen Or Are You A Slave" for the first time ever. I met a lot of great researchers, authors, and video makers that weekend!

Janice Mathews gave me a copy of David Ray Griffin's new book "The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions & Distortions". The Joint Congressional Committee had released it's report in 2002 minus "28 pages" said to be top secret, and the 9/11 Commission released its report written by Philip Zelikow in 2004. So Griffin was able to effectively debunk the narrative in short order.

When I read about the completely "omitted testimony" of Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta, the information fairly jumped off the page at me! This calls for a song! Mineta describes how "a young man" kept asking Vice President Cheney, at intervals of 50, 30, and 10 miles, as he reported to Cheney that a plane was heading toward Washington, DC, the young officer asked, "Do the orders still stand?" By the third time, Mineta says, "Cheney whipped his neck around and said, "Of course the orders still stand! Have you heard anything to the contrary?"

It left us all wondering what the orders were, a shoot down or a stand down?

For years the truth seeking world wondered who this unnamed "young man" Mineta mentioned in his omitted testimony actually was? Researchers eventually determined that he was Naval Aide Douglas Cochrane - See 911 Blogger. But when he was pressed to answer questions by journalists, he simply deferred to the 9/11 Commission Report as the final authority on the subject. Those who failed were all rewarded and promoted.

Thanks to the movie 9/11 In the Academic Community, we now know that 25% of the footnotes in that cover-up report came from Zelikow's use of torture "testimony"! 

Nobody at the Pentagon was warned or evacuated! This results in no demotions, reprimands, firings, or law suits? (Note: April Gallop's law suit was dismissed without being heard!) Nothing but praise and promotions for those who failed to protect the now deceased at military headquarters?

Here at this 16th year of research and reports, the official story has been proven to be just as David Ray Griffin described it in an article titled The 9/11 Commission Report: A 571-Page Lie by David Ray Griffin, May 22, 2005, that was posted at 

Dr. Griffin led off with this: "In discussing my second 9/11 book, The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions, I have often said, only half in jest, that a better title might have been “a 571-page lie.” (Actually, I was saying “a 567-page lie,” because I was forgetting to count the four pages of the Preface.) In making this statement, one of my points has been that the entire Report is constructed in support of one big lie: that the official story about 9/11 is true. Another point, however, is that in the process of telling this overall lie, The 9/11 Commission Report tells many lies about particular issues. This point is implied by my critique’s subtitle, “Omissions and Distortions.” Then Dr. Griffin said, "I now list (of 115 Lies cited) the omissions and claims of The 9/11 Commission Report that I, in my critique of that report, portrayed as lies." 

 Massimo Mazzucco September 11 The New Pearl Harbor One

"Cheney's in the Bunker" was inspired and informed by the exposure of Lie #85, which David Griffin describes as: "The omission of Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta’s testimony, given to the Commission itself, that Vice-President Cheney and others in the underground shelter were aware by 9:26 that an aircraft was approaching the Pentagon (p.220).

Cheney's in the Bunker is for the people willing to pay attention and willing to be challenged. I have had to change my opinion many times when new information has come my way. Why wouldn't we want to base our opinions on evidence and truth? To be willfully ignorant is a sad and insensitive reaction to a treasonous tragedy that led to so much unjustifiable war abroad and repressive laws at home.
Songwriter Cites Footnotes to Scholarly Research on the Crimes of 9/11/01: Here is the video I made years ago for "Cheney's in the Bunker". It's one of my first videos and lacks the finesse later learned. It was posted at "Vic Sadot" & "Truth Troubadour" YouTube Channels.

and how the cover story was used

Cheney’s in the Bunker
Verse: 8 X Em D C Em

Cheney’s in the bunker …now we’re under attack (1)
Someone seized our jets... in a terror hijack…
They flew into the Towers with a mighty impact
The Trade Center fell in a total collapse…
Now Bush is in the classroom for a photo-op show…
The story of the goat is what he wants “kids” to know
The day is Nine-Eleven… year Two-Thousand and One
Now who the hell’s attacking us, and what’s to be done?
Chorus: 2 X G D C B7 / B7 Em Em Em

Do the orders still stand, sir? Do the orders still stand?
Do the orders still stand, sir? Do the orders still stand?
“Do the orders still stand?”
The Transportation Secretary, he testified (2 Norman Mineta, May 2003 Commission Staff Report)
By 9:20 AM he was by Cheney’s side
Cheney’s in charge in the White House war room
When did the teleconference start? And it involved whom? (3)
Mineta said a “young man” asked Cheney in doubt…
“Do the orders still stand, sir? They’re 50 miles out”
“They’re 30 miles out, sir…” He reports to command…
“The plane is 10 miles out, sir… Do the orders still stand?” (4) (chorus) - Instrumental
Cheney’s in the bunker… “Is it real or a drill?” (5)
They’re flying toward the Pentagon, the White House, the Hill…
Dubya’s with the children… lookin’ out of the loop…
The orders pass secretly within a small group…
The “young man” returns … He’s askin’ Cheney again!
“Do the orders still stand, sir?, He questions command…
Cheney “whipped his neck around, ‘of course!,’ says he,
‘Have you heard anything to the contrary?’”(6) (chorus)
Was there one order to “stand down”, and one “shoot to kill”?
At 9:38 the Pentagon was hit with great skill (7)
The cover for the capitol was sent out to sea!
That’s where they sent our fighter jets from loyal Langley! (8)
Incompetence, complicity, conspiracy?
Everyone of those requires a penalty!?
If Rumsfeld and Myers failed us all on that day?
Why was one promoted? Why’d the other one stay? (chorus) - Instrumental
Cheney’s in the bunker, “now” it’s not til near 10! (9 National Commission final report 2004)
They’re changing all the timelines we were given back then…
There’s no time “now” to stop the DC attack…
The Pentagon batteries couldn’t even fight back …
No “shoot down” order aimed at Flight 93… (10)
When passengers were on the verge of victory… (11)
Mineta was omitted from the final report…
Many other matters they dismiss and distort… (12) (chorus)

Please read my 12 footnotes to this song. And read The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions & Distortions by David Ray Griffin, author of The New Pearl Harbor, by Olive Branch Press:
These footnotes are from the original release of the song lyrics in 2005, and some from From The Wilderness may no longer be functional. There is one additional citation from David Ray Griffin sent in on Sept 6, 2017 added to footnote #10 about the timelines having “been verified by three recently declassified Secret Service documents (contained in Griffin’s 2017 book, Bush and Cheney: How They Destroyed America and the World, p 239.)”. VRS
Footnotes to the song Cheney’s in the Bunker/Do the Orders Still Stand?
1. The “bunker” is actually called the Presidential Emergency Operations Center (PEOC). It is located in the basement of the east wing of the White House. Griffin, When Did Cheney Go to the Shelter? P 241.

2. Secretary of Transportion, Norman Mineta’s testimony before the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks on the United States, Staff Report of May 23, 2003, available at:,

Griffin, p 208.

3. There were actually at least three teleconferences going on at once during the morning crisis of 9/11/01. Griffin explains who initiated them and what is known about them p 233.

4. The full quote of Vice President Cheney by Norman Mineta was actually, “Of course the orders still stand. Have you heard anything to the contrary?” Commissioner Timothy Roemer did ask Mineta what he “assumed” the orders were. Mineta said that he assumed that “the orders” were to shoot any incoming attacks down (David Ray Griffin, The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions, page 220).

5. War games ongoing on 9/11/01: Griffin p 268 – 269; “Vigilant Guardian”, and “Vigilant Warrior”, and other drills on 9/11/01 raise questions about the military response and the purpose of those exercises. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reported to the Notheast Air Defense Sector (NEADS) of the North American Airospace Defense Command (NORAD) that they have “hijacked aircraft headed to New York and ‘need someone to scramble some F-16s or something up there.” The person at NEADS replies, “Is this real-world or exercise?” Richard Clarke, Against All Enemies, p 5; Peter Lance, Cover Up, p 226, citing William B Scott, “Exercise Jump-Starts Response to Attacks,” Aviation Week and Space Technology, June 3, 2002;,

and Mike Kelly, “Atlantic City F-16 Fighters Were Eight Minutes Away From 9/11 Hijacked Planes”; Michael Kane, “The Final Fraud: The 9/11 Commission Closes Its Doors to the Public: Cover-Up Complete,” From the Wilderness Publications

6. Griffin, p 220/ Richard Clarke, Against All Enemies, p 5.

7. Changing Timelines, Griffin chart p 152, 153.

8. Griffin, p 201/National Commission Staff Report, March 23.2004, quoted in Paul Thompson’s The Terror Timeline, 424, 426.

9. Ongoing teleconferences involving Rumsfeld, Myers, Cheney, Clarke, Rice, etc. Griffin p 208, Richard Clark at 9:39 am, “I can still see Rumsfeld on the screen, so the whole building didn’t get hit.” Three simultaneous teleconferences going on 9/11/01 p 230 – 235.

10. Changing Timelines, Griffin chart p 152, 153; Cheney’s arrival in the PEOC bunker, Griffin p 241/Reports on 9-11-01 to 9-14-01 timelines said that AA #11 struck the North Tower at 8:46 am /UA #175 struck the South Tower at 9:03 am /AA # 77 departed Dulles, DC at 8:20 am, and is claimed to have hit the Pentagon at 9:38 am/AA # 93 departed Newark, NJ at 8:42 am, and is claimed to have crashed at at10:06 am in a field in the Pennsylvania country-side amidst a passenger/crew attempt to re-take the plane. Without saying so, this Commission is stating that no planes were shot down on 9/11/01 by the United States Military or any special ops “war games” scenario à la Operation Northwoods (see Griffin, p 269).The truth of Cheney’s timeline has been verified by three recently declassified Secret Service documents (contained in Griffin’s 2017 book, Bush and Cheney: How They Destroyed America and the World, p 239.)
11. When Was the Shoot-Down Order Authorization Given?, Griffin, p 237. When Did AA Flight #93 Crash?, Griffin, p 249.
12. Mineta testimony excluded from the final report, Griffin, p 221. There are so many other omissions and distortions that you could write a book about it. In fact, a number of people have produced very credible works as part of a global research effort by such authors as Michael Chossudovsky, Thierry Meyssan, Nafeez Ahmed, Michael Ruppert, Wayne Madsen, Eric Hufschmid, Peter Lance, and Paul Thompson to name just a few. Several of the most notable omissions by this Commission would have to include the three and a half hours of testimony and documentation presented by FBI translator and whistleblower, Sibel Edmonds, who was put under a gag order, WTC janitor and rescue hero William Rodriguez’s testimony that there were explosions at the core of the North Tower where he worked that he heard while he helped explosion burn victim, Felipe David, to safety outside and returned to the building to save others twice, and much of Richard Clarke’s testimony, The National Coordinator for Security and Counterterrorism for the Clinton and G.W. Bush administrations.

Here's a Delaware Coastal Zone Act Defense Update Report! Last week the DE House caved in to Big Industry lobbyists and voted for allowing loopholes in the law that protects your water and the vital environment associated with it. The DE Senate vote has scheduled the HB190 "Reform" for WEDNESDAY 6/28 & THURSDAY 6/29.

You, your family, your community, and at least "Seven Generations Forward", are counting on you to NOT SLEEP WALK AT THIS TIME. Study up at the Delaware Coastal Zone Act page! Make some phone calls! Write something! Defend your interests! This is Common Ground stuff! 
Let your State Senators know who they are working for and that this one might make you not vote for them, or you may hold them legally responsible for toxic consequences from environmental poisoning in the future. #SaveTheCZA

 Delaware Coastal Zone Act Preservation Promo

CZA activist Jeanne Sadot (center above) says, "This bill makes no sense. Except to allow the refinery to make bulk shipments of highly dangerous ethanol.... I'll let you know what happens, but it doesn't look good. Most people I've talked to in DE City have not even heard about this bill...probably the most affected area."

Here are some excerpts from Green Delaware Executive Director Alan Muller in the article from 6-05-17 titled "Strengthen,don’t gut, the Delaware Coastal Zone Act": 
“Much of the near-fifty-years of Coastal Zone controversy has been rather stereotyped — business and union interests claiming damage to the economy, loss of jobs, etc., and environmental interests asserting the need to protect our natural resources and quality of life. For the most part, the Act has been chipped away at, and enforcement has often been weak. The last few years have been especially disastrous, with the Markell administration shutting down meaningful enforcement, handing out Coastal Zone permits like so many peanuts, and Delaware courts willfully misinterpreting the plain language of the Act to deny citizens “standing” to demand enforcement. The present Governor, John Carney, ran on a platform that included weakening of the Act…
The current proposed legislation, House Bill 190, would not leave much left of the Act. The prime sponsor, Rep. Ed. Osienski, is a retired construction union business agent. In spite of these problems, the Act has done a lot of good… Fifty years ago Delaware’s political system was able to recognize these realities and act somewhat effectively with a pioneering “coastal management” law. Has our collective wisdom so deteriorated that, in the face in increasing demands, we will choose to roll back, rather than strengthen, coastal protections?…
An impressive collection of Delaware’s non-governmental organizations are calling on legislators to withdraw SB 190 and set up a “stakeholder” review process to look at the Coastal Zone Act. Green Delaware supports this, but we note that such a process should (1) not be dominated by industrial/organized labor interests tied to the negative agenda revealed in SB 190,and (2) the focus should not be on weakening the act, but on strengthening it to meet the needs of present times…Those legislators need to hear from you NOW. ” Read the full article at Green Delaware "Strengthen, don't gut, the Delaware Coastal Zone Act".

Nuclear Heartland USA video of Nukewatch John LaForge published to YouTube

“Nuclear HeartlandUSA” was published to “Social Justice in the Heart of Berkeley” You Tube Channel on March 29, 2017 by Vic Sadot. 

Nuclear Heartland, the book, was first published in 1988. John LaForge of Nukewatch updated and republished a 2015 report on the status of land-based nuclear silos in the United States. He presented a power-point lecture on the book and the nuclear weapons abolition movement. 

 Marion Küpker, German Nuclear Abolitionist, in Berkeley CA with John LaForge (6 minutes)
John LaForge of Nukewatch was accompanied on this speaking tour with German nuclear abolitionist activist Marion Küpker, who represents GAAA, Gewaltfreie Aktion Atomwaffen Abschaffen (GAAA, Nonviolent Action to Abolish Nuclear Weapons). It is a German organisation dedicated to the total abolition of nuclear weapons. Since many of us had not heard that a historic vote in the UN General Assembly was coming up on Oct 27, 2016, we learned about it from John LaForge. The vote was overwhelming to make 2017 the year to push the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty forward through UN sponsored conferences: 123 In Favor; 38 Against; 16 Abstentions. The vote was something of an act of defiance toward the Security Council, and almost all nuclear-armed powers voted no, with some notable abstentions. The mainstream media buried the story as if it was not a significant event in human history!

Cynthia Jean Johson welcomed everyone to Historic Fellowship Hall in Berkeley. Author-activist Cecile Pineda did the introduction of John LaForge of Nukewatch. BFUU Social Justice Committee activists Ingrid Kepler-May and James Beatty appear in the Q&A session. Ingrid Kepler-May is in the Q&A segment at around 49:10 of the 58 minute video. She is in a discussion with speaker John LaForge about the effects of US use of depleted uranium in weapons and armor, particularly how it contaminates the environment and causes birth defects in Iraqi babies. Ingrid witnessed these results first-hand on a visit to hospitals in Iraq. The 58 minutes video was made by Vic Sadot from an audio recording by David Yandle of a John LaForge NukeWatch Book Update presentation by John in Fellowship Hall, Berkeley, CA on Oct. 13, 2016. Sponsored by BFUU Social Justice Committee.

The vote was presaged by John LaForge on Oct 13, 2016 in Berkeley. We include that with the advantage of releasing the video in late March 2017 as the US, UK, and other nuclear powers were actually boycotting the talks, and instead planning new attacks on Syria, and blaming the Russians for hacking the last US election. Did your media even cover the crucial talks to ban nuclear weapons from the Earth? Next round is in July! Make them negotiate nuclear disarmament like they were doing before GW unilaterally withdrew the US from the ABM Treaty with Russia! Making the Middle East a Nuclear Weapons Free Zone is one of the immediate goals of many nuclear abolition activists.

It was a stunning and memorable update presentation by John LaForge to celebrate the 2015 re-publication of “Nuclear Heartland”! The book was first published in 1988 to let Americans know where the nuke silos are, and that they make you less secure in contradiction of the stated nuclear “deterrence” goal. This only becomes apparent after you understand the war profiteering and the unacceptable risks involved in nuclear radiation, and the climate of fear needed to promote the arms race.

Henry Knorr takes a turn at the open mic during the Question & Answer Session

Henry Knorr Defends Alison Weir from JVP Attacks on "Voices in the Middle East" Radio Show on KPFA Pacifica Radio SoundCloud Move the bar forward to the 38:00 minute mark to hear Henry Knorr, who is an American Jewish Bay Area activist against the 6 decade Apartheid Occupation of Palestine. He is also a member of JVP.  He calls it a “demonization campaign” against Alison Weir and IfAmericanKnew dot org. He also admires Alison for “not just talking to the choir”. He is disgusted with the secret dossier compiled on her, and how an umbrella group named The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation of Palestine was led to expel her due to the slander campaign. The real problem is that she stands against Zionism as a supremacist political ideology. He talks about her book Against Our Better Judgment about the Israel Lobby and how it is based to a large degree on academic histories by Jewish historians, thoroughly documented, "not kooky stuff", maintains Henry Knorr. 

Long-time Justice for Palestine singer-songwriter activist
