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."

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.
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............
