Roland Haas CIA assassin found dead of a gun shot wound

“True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.
~Arthur Ashe


Death of an American hero. Roland Haas, CIA assassin, found dead of a gun shot wound. Roland Haas worked for the CIA as a contract assassin for over thirty years and chronicled some of his life in his book Enter The Past Tense: My Secret Life as a CIA Assassin. While the government makes no comment or admits any knowledge of Haas' past relationship the book reveals an unknown world of assassinations.
"A fatal shooting that took place August 21st, Saturday night on Forest Circle, just off Shenandoah Boulevard near Highway 34 East, has been ruled accidental, say Coweta County authorities. The victim, Roland W. Haas, 58, suffered a single gunshot to his right leg, which ruptured his femoral artery, according to Major James Yarbrough of the Coweta County Sheriff's Office." Times-Herald.com
We may never know the truth about Roland Hass' death and we know that the government won't tell. Considering what he did and what he knew and has yet to tell, I imagine that there is sigh of relief among certain government types. Anyone who thinks that the United States does not assassinate it's enemies is naive. We do it with drones, with hit squads, with proxy agents and with CIA assassins like Haas. The United States of America has a lot of enemies who would stop at nothing to destroy America and "would dance with glee" at the death of thousands of Americans. Men like Haas are inevitable and necessary. Unfortunately for some, sometimes the time comes when they no longer serve any use. It may be that Haas had reached that point. As a result of his book he may have become expendable. Considering his life and exposure his death is a true mystery. We give medals to soldiers in uniform but not to the clandestine fighters like Haas. He is also an American hero and deserves the honor we reserve for all of our heros.

Less we forget. We have enemies.

Great article.

Roland Haas was a gentle, caring, hard-working, extremely intelligent human being. He was my boss 25 years ago in Germany, and he and his wife Marilyn became close friends to me and my family. He was loved and will be sorely missed.

I only met Roland Haas a few times at World Gym in Peachtree City. He was obviously a very interesting character. I only recently read his book and wanted to somehow get to know he and Marilyn better. What a shock to read of his death. I really hope that Coweta County investigates this with all diligence. Many clues have to be there if they look at them as clearing the name of one of their own. Please be persistent in letting the TRUTH come out. I for one believe Roland was everything he claimed to be and more. Otherwise, take it from a previous veteran, he would not have help the position he held at Ft. McPherson............

  5. You said this: "While the government makes no comment or admits any knowledge of Haas' past relationship the book reveals an unknown world of assassinations."

    I guess you missed where the CIA did actually comment on Haas after his death, something they rarely, if ever, do. See here: http://www.ajc.com/news/cia-assassin-or-great-599587.html

    I'll save you the trouble of looking it up. From the article: "'This individual was never a CIA employee,' said Paula Weiss, CIA spokeswoman. Specifically, the national intelligence agency said Haas wasn't a contractor, freelancer or hired in any capacity."

    Also, US Army Reserve Command, where Haas worked at Fort McPherson, did not take a position on Haas's book and stated that he wrote it on his personal time and was exercising his right of free speech. They tried to deflect all they could, because bringing more attention to the matter would have embarrassed them.

    It is sad that some folks have to live vicariously through a fantasy that someone else has dreamed up to fit a certain worldview. Haas knew exactly what to write while still alive--he never had to clear his book through the agency since he was never employed by them and he could always use the old, "Well of course they will deny they employed an assassin trick." Haas never figured that he would die within a few years of writing the book and that the agency actually would comment.

  6. Re: the above degradation of Roland's character and implication of fantasy, the person who wrote those words is the naive one.

  7. Tell a person that his/her spouse is cheating and they require rock solid evidence. Haas tells people he was a CIA assassin and they believe it without question. Do you see the disconnect? Haas was lying about all of his "adventures," and the US Army Reserve Command realized they couldn't do anything to him as the rules to get rid of Army civilians are pretty tight. "Free speech" was how Haas kept his job. So how many "CIA assassins" out there don't know proper gun handling techniques? Keep that in mind. It's not that he claimed to be an analyst. The guy claimed to be an assassin and then negligently (I refuse to use accidentally") shot himself.

  9. Anonymous feb 22,2012 06:52 pm I was lucky enough to know Roland Haas and the man was defintely a hero.It doesn't matter if some people don't believe the truth about Roland.Some times people are able to do things that other people think are impossible.Of course our government isn't going to admit that Roland worked for them.They would never admit to having people eliminated.I also refuse to beleive that he accidently shot himself. as to who did shoot him ,we most likely never will know.Rest in peace Roland.

  11. Sorry you are wrong. I worked with Roland in Germany. I have known Roland since 1985 until he left Germany in 1994. I knew Roland better than most. He shared his secrets and not even his wife knew. Roland is not a hero. Rest in peace Bro.

  12. I read the book by Mr.Haas and call me what you want but it was quite convincing.A certain Ms.Weiss at the CIA denied Mr.Haas was ever employed by that agency.My question is : "Is there really a person named Weiss at the CIA?"

  13. Just curious..........how did this man Haas get and keep a security clearance? Doesn't anyone check backgrounds anymore.........drugs? Kiss of death for a cleared person....especially with the army..his story is entertaining though.... maybe one of the 'Spetznaz' officers pictured in his book will step forward and admit to knowing Haas. I'm sure there are some ex Stasi files that cover the 'accident' Haas claimed to have created for the three women operatives in East Germany.........

    Just saying
