THE UNMARKED GRAVES
Posted by rezinate on July 8, 2013
Excerpts from The Unquiet Grave related to the murder of Williams and Coler:
“The AIMers approached. Who and how many they were are still unknown, but among them were Leonard Peltier, Dino Butler, and Bob Robideau- the same trio who had interrogated Aquash in New Mexico a few weeks before.”
Hendricks goes on to say the “AIMers”searched the agents and moved one of the vehicles to a wooded area to listen on the police radio. page 208 of The Unquiet Grave.
Page 10: And although Dr. Brown reported that Aquash had not been raped and had been dead no more than ten days Peterson concluded that rape could not be ruled out and Aquash could have been killed weeks, even months, before she was found.
Bear in mind that Brown was the one who performed the initial half assed autopsy, missed the bullet entirely, and lied about the extent of the procedure he performed.
So it has been established that Annie was abducted, beaten,interrogated, possibly raped,shot in the head and left to die. Of nagging interest to me is where was Peltier when the decision was made to murder Annie and carried out?
By his own words he has said he was back and forth between Canada and the US-but of greater interest is the lie he told in stating he was in jail in Canada during the time she was killed in December of 1975 when Peltier wasn’t in jail until Febuary of the following year.
There’s nothing to link Peltier physically to the act, there are however circumstances that speak to the potential benefit for him in her murder .
Most notably the fact that he bragged in front of her about his roll in the murders of agents Williams and Coler, and Coler’s service revolver was in his possession during the infamous Oregon RV stop, he had previously interrogated Annie, later to announce he would like to subject her to truth serum, and was in fact a part of the group keeping an eye on her.
Now it doesn’t take a mental giant that contrary to Peltier’s lies about how close he and Annie were, that if he had only known she was in danger she would have been with him and he would have looked out for her, to understand that a person,any person, who has had a gun stuck in their mouth and interrogated at Peltier’s or anyone hands would not have thought of them as friend, someone to trust ,or someone to seek help from.
I don’t believe Peltier was physically present during any stage of Annie’s ordeal but I’d be willing to bet he knew what was going on every step of the way and very well could have had input in the decision making process.
There are numerous statements throughout the book The Unquiet Grave that expose the liar Peltier is, discrepencies and contradictions in Mathiessens book In The Spirit of Crazy Horse are pointed out as well, and yet his supporters will selectively choose to ignore them while promoting others they believe supportive.
Apparently Hendrick’s is satisfied with his book and feels he has done a service, in some ways he has, but if service to the nations is his intent he should begin work on a sequel…The Unmarked Graves, The American Indian Movement and The Struggle For The Soul of Indian Country.
That would be the unmarked graves of AIM’s multiple victims at WK2.
If so maybe another mocumentary like Incident at Oglala could be made since it played and fast and loose with the facts.
