I had intended to post this as a follow up blog to the previous one in a day or so but decided not to wait.
I DON’T GIVE A DAMN
Anthony E. Ament, a co conspirator, was arrested along with Hill as a “material witness”, following Hill’s release Ament seems to have disappeared, next to nothing related to him can be found on the net.
A little strange that a co conspirator is only held as a material witness and also walks. How could that be?
Could it be that as Hill rolled over the necessity arose to let Ament go if Hill was meant to operate undercover?
Drag Ament into court without Hill and a lot of questions would have arisen and cast a long shadow.
Could a convincing case be made against Ament without involving Hill in some manner, like a witness for example?.
Had Hill of testified against Ament the cat would have been out of the bag, no one would be able to say Hill hadn’t rolled over and whatever potential he held as an informant would have evaporated.
Ament rides off into the sunset thanking his lucky stars more than willing to keep his mouth shut and a low profile.
Of additional interest is that Richard G. Held was the SAC assigned to Pine Ridge at the time of the Rushmore bombing.
Held was the one who ran the Cointel program with a marked degree of secrecy and an authortarian approach that kept the rank and file agents out of the loop.
The command structure within law enforcement mirrors that of the military – access is predicated on a need to know basis, and when an order is given it isn’t questioned but acted upon.
I believe it is more than logical to assume Held would have had access to, and did in fact interview/interrogate Hill as the SAC while he was in custody.
To me this adds another curious layer – Cointel was said to have been disbanded earlier on, and it may have officially been, but that in no way affords an assurance that the same methods weren’t employed under the guise of a different program or entirely off the books as they pretty much are today.
Agent Zigrossi when interviewed about whether Hill was an informant or not said Hill had offered his services but was declined as he had nothing to offer – I’ve previously addressed this alleged “nothing” to offer in other blogs, but Zigrossi also went on to say at the same time that the feds never give up an informant while they are alive.
To me that coupled with Hill’s ability to walk casts suspicion on Zigrossi’s denial and makes me wonder what if any relationship existed between Held and Zigrossi?
So as the story goes we are to believe an AIM henchman who was close to Dennis Banks in his capacity as “security”, who participated in and initiated the Custer Court House incident, who also bombed Rushmore had “nothing to offer” and the bombing was so inconsequential the feds felt compelled to kick Hill loose and request the State of South Dakota to drop weapons charges they had against Hill? Did they also intervene in the Utah non support case leveled against Hill?
Maybe it’s just me, but none of this looks or smells right – in fact it looks an awful lot like an attempt to sell ocean front property in Arizona. Like one of those treaties that will be in force as long as the grasses grow and the rivers flow.
We’re adults, and should understand that as long as criminal organizations exist there will be attempts to undermine them, there will be informants within the ranks – but we also understand, or should understand, that no moral or constitutional immunity exists for breaking the law to “enforce” it.
Nor does it exist for infiltrating legitimate movements like Occupy or environmental groups on a mere assumption that they may at some point engage in a criminal act or corporations don’t like them and view them as a threat to their status quo.
It is this arrogance, this disregard for the “rule of law” that has lead to it’s subversion, to a paramilitary police force who beat, abuse, and even murder people with impunity.
No one should be so naive as to fail to understand or deny that the AIM leadership ran AIM as a criminal organization, and as such should be held accountable….NOTHING ABSOLVES THEM OF THE CRIMES AND MURDERS THEY COMMITTED – NOT SNITCHES, INFORMANTS, PROVOCATEURS, GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS, “PARANOIA”, THE MAN IN THE MOON, OKC, MUMIA, 911, WACO, WHITE SUPREMACY GROUPS, OR ANYTHING ELSE.
Nobody held a gun to AIM’s head forcing them to do anything, the crimes and murders they committed are the direct result of willful decisions made by the leadership-every abuse, every corruption of ceremonies, every murder, every threat, every act of arson, every theft was planned and authorized by them and them alone.
Nor does absolution exist for ANY engaging in ANY criminal act on the other side of the fence – that belief supported by the rule of law, a moral and ethical obligation, and the Constitution have been and will remain the basis of my contention that ANY with ANY level of complicity involving the events at WK2 or any other comparable event on ANY rez in this country need to be held accountable, and I don’t give a damn if they wear a badge, stick a feather in their hair and call themselves warriors and liberators, political prisoners, what their name, is or who they think they are.
If I’ve failed to make it abundantly clear throughout the existence of this blog I’ll repeat earlier statements of mine:
(1) It is my belief that every member of the leadership is complicit in the crime of murder(s).
(2) It is my belief that every member of the leadership has rolled over when it served them.
(3) It is my belief that nothing AIM, Peltier, or any of their camp dogs has to say can be taken as the truth.
