One of the recurring questions concerning the kidnap murder of Annie Mae has always been and remains to this day who and how many had prior knowledge or knew in the aftermath?
Russell has claimed such knowledge on two different occasions, while Banks just gives you that blank look and says it’s all a profound mystery to him- that not only did he love him some Annie Mae but had the greatest trust and confidence in her.
But I suspect if the heat were to really come down he would go that Theda route, check himself into a facility, and wander about inbetween bingo games asking what his name is and where he’s at.
I could be wrong about that if he has a woman in his life-in that case he would probably revert to habit and abandon her and flee-maybe to the Los Angeles underground to join the A-Team. Instead of Mr. T’s character B A he could become know as B S.
The thing with Russell is he’s a braggart-provide an audience of any size and he is only to happy to regale them with tales of Means and his unrestricted encyclopedic knowledge of all things Indigenous-from his revised versions of tradition, ceremony, matriarchy, to whose done what.
But he gets confused and either ahead of or behind himself like he has with Annie. First in an epic B grade performance he announced that Vernon Bellecourt was THE culprit, later to amend that to he knew but had given his stellar word to perpetuate the crime until such time as the real culprit had passed away.
I suspect that if and when Russell presents his latest tales from the crypt it will be somebody like Frank DeLuca/Blackhorse, Claypoole’s favorite dark horse of the moment to free Leonard, or another also ran.
Maybe even Doug Durham, who has already passed away, to kind of flesh out that operative tale Trudell is pushing- because as we know “dead men tell no tales” and Durham could hardly repudiate such an accusation.
I believe that not only was the idea to murder Annie floated over a period of time but that those in the know either prior to or after her murder composes a list larger than generally discussed on the net.
Now there are some who seem to be fixated on J. Edgar Hoover and Nazi’s-that’s okay I guess if it’s what blows their skirt up, but doesn’t quite work for me.
I don’t have any illusions about Hoover or any governmental agency, nor do I care if he shopped for lingerie at Victoria’s Secret-and I’m pretty sure that among themselves agents joke and anecdotes related to Hoover are exchanged.
I’m also pretty sure that it would be difficult to pick any organization private or governmental that some level of corruption hasn’t existed in-that’s not to make an excuse for anyone, only a recognition that we live in an imperfect world.
An example would be AIM-corruption not only exists, but in the waxing and waning has abounded-but that doesn’t imply every AIM member participates, and only a fool would attempt to say it does.
In Clyde’s drug dealing prior to his arrest did that somehow make all of the AIM rank and file drug dealers? In the murder of Annie and Ray does that somehow make all AIM rank and file murderers?
This is too basic a logic-to simple a question for some to consider, and no doubt the response will be fbiguy and sellout, as that’s about all they have. A response that is about as feeble and laughable as they are.
The list I would present contains names in excess of those commonly referred to-but I invite the reader to consider them and do a little rooting around to ascertain their organizational positions and make their own determination-wouldn’t hurt to employ that family ties and six degrees of separation metric in doing so:
Dennis Banks, Clyde and Vernon Bellecourt, Leonard Crow Dog, Vernon Harper, Dave Hill,Russell,Ted, and Bill Means, Herb Powless,Theda Clark, John Graham,Arlo Looking Cloud,Angie Begay, Lorelei DeCora Means, Madonna Gilbert, Troy Lynn Yellow Wood, John Trudell, Thelma Rios, Ron Skenandore, and undoubtedly many others.
Of these and others not listed one would think at least one of them other than Arlo would remember what it means to be a human being and step forward to tell the truth in it’s entirety.
If all the lies that have been told about the murder of Annie, and all the propaganda written in various sites were placed end to end it would be a highway wide enough and long enough to drive a “tank” to the moon.
If sites like NNN want to speak about revisionists they should first get their facts straight and adhere to a journalistic policy of reporting them in their entirety without bias-or if they elect to do so remain an AIM satellite and be candid about it.
How those “journalists” love to sit behind a desk and interspice their presentation with words like war-I assume that would be called poetic license to add an element of drama to an otherwise dull and predictable AIM press handout.
NNN loves to do the drama bit with mention of dozens of “tanks” at WK2 while failing to substantiate the presence of a single “tank”-and I’ve yet to see so much as single photo of a “tank” in proximity.
Guess they forgot to mention the Drones and Stealth Bombers-but there’s still time as the story exists in a state of constant revision.
Hopefully NNN will resist following the model and become the nations version of Fox (faux) News. Hopefully the story won’t evolve that Williams and Coler arrived in a M551 Sheridan and without provocation opened fire on poor Robin Peltier and his band of Merry men.
Hopefully at some point they will do an article that Annie was executed following the bogus findings of a bogus “tribunal” operating at the behest of a bogus organization known as AIM-but if they’re waiting for that press release from AIM to do so it’s not going to happen.
Maybe at some point they will do an article detailing AIM’s scorched earth policy ala Sherman they conducted at WK2-maybe they’ll speak of the hostages taken, the looting and arson-the murders and unmarked graves. That would require real journalism and the removal of their heads from AIM’s anus, so one can only wait and hope for the best.
Above is a photo of a “tank” circa the WK2 era-if anyone has a photo of one these deployed at WK2 I would be really interested in seeing it.
