When it comes to lies and myths a person might feel as though Leonard Peltier holds the copyright – yet I find it a sad commentary that there are those who continue to promote John Graham as being a “land warrior” and a scapegoat in the murder of Annie Mae Pictou Aquash.
Taking into consideration his victim was a woman they’re careful not to directly refer to Graham as a hero or leader – at least the majority of them – opting instead to save such unwarranted accolades for Peltier.
This denial of Graham’s guilt is usually accompanied by references to Graham’s age at the time he executed Annie with a shot to the back of her head and at least a vague if not over the top alluding that the feds did it as though to say a young man or woman is only capable of murder at some as yet to be defined age.
Understanding I assume that such as this alone won’t withstand the critical eye they often opt to include the equivalent of Peltier’s Mr.X lie by adding Annie was seen alive following her execution.
There are a select few individuals making the talk show and “reading” circuit who claim they can communicate with the dead, and this claim that Annie was seen alive is every bit as fraudulent.
The one says they do so to provide “closure” and “comfort” to the friends and relatives of the deceased – the motivation for the other can only be a feeble attempt to exonerate a cold blooded murderer accused of raping his victim prior to killing her after having transported their bound victim a thousand or so miles to Pine Ridge, the AIM domain of Russell Means who proclaimed that nothing AIM related could take place on PR without his express knowledge and permission.
