Below is a link to what has become known as the Aquash Murder Case Timeline as compiled by Paul DeMain of News From Indian Country.
A timeline that has withstood the test of time, numerous attempts to fault it, and has also been used as a reference and source material by authors from Hendricks to Claypoole, journalists, as well as various sites.
Most people who are aware of the issues are familiar with it, but it is worth taking a second look.
The predictable response by AIM and the Peltierites has been an attempt to portray witness statements, and in fact the entire timeline, as being the work of “sellouts”, “haters”, “feds”, or taking the “Fifth”…..in lieu of honesty there isn’t much of anything else they could say though is there?
The feeble go to attempt by AIM and it’s leadership to offer some kind of defense has been that of “paranoia” – seems reasonable to me that if you’re a band of criminals rampaging across the country committing murders there would or should be an element of paranoia – but fear or paranoia based on crimes committed as a defense? I don’t think so.
