Going through the external and ran across this article from ’06.
A couple of things I don’t agree with, that being referencing Trudell, Butler, Means, and Peltier, especially Peltier, as heroes.
I credit Butler for stepping up and revealing the Mr. X lie associated with Peltier was nothing more than a complete fabrication and Trudell for his revealing Dennis Bank$ ability to identify Annie’s remains long before anyone else could without having viewed them but that’s where it ends.
Means statement that the Bellecourts were the sole perpetrators rings as hollow and vacuous as Means himself was.
And Peltier? Give me a break, a man about as heroic as a bowel movement.
The truth of the matter can only be when taking into consideration the AIM “tribunal” where it was decided to murder Annie is that the AIM leadership in it’s entirety is culpable.
That would be a self-serving leadership composed of at least one or more informants as is the verified case of Russell Means.
America has a penchant for supporting those who it perceives to be the underdog – laudable in some instances as in the case of Standing Rock, but detrimental in others.
Were it not for this penchant it is doubtful AIM could have garnered the attention it did or have the multiple crimes and murders they committed glossed over.
I can only echo the admonition to drop the romanticism and get behind justice for the survivors of AIM’s victims, which seems to be something of a novel thought among those who embrace nonsense.
To update the rogues gallery above both Means and Camp have passed on – additionally John Trudell as well.
