February 6, 2008 - Iran * Reflecting Pool * Clinton * Peltier

"Actions are held to be good or bad,
not on their own merits, but according
to who does them. There is almost no
kind of outrage--torture, imprisonment
without trial, assassination, the bombing
of civilians . . . does not change its moral
color when it is committed by 'our' side.
The nationalist not only does not disapprove
of atrocities committed by his own side,
he has a remarkable capacity for not even
hearing about them."

-- George Orwell

Editor’s Notes:

"Leonard Peltier is a great-grandfather, artist, writer, & indigenous rights activist. He is a citizen of the Anishinabe and Dakota/Lakota Nations who has been unjustly imprisoned since February 6, 1976, thirty-two years ago. He was involved in the American Indian Movement, and went to assist the Oglala Lakota people on the Pine Ridge Reservation in the mid-70s where a tragic shoot-out occurred on June 26, 1975. Accused of the murder of two agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Peltier fled to Canada believing he would never receive a fair trial in the United States. On February 6 when he was apprehended, the FBI knowingly presented the Canadian court with fraudulent affidavits, and Peltier was returned to the U.S. for trial.

Key witnesses were banned from testifying about FBI misconduct and the conditions and testimony of the atmosphere on the Pine Ridge Reservation at the time of the shoot-out was severely restricted. Important evidence, such as conflicting ballistics reports, was ruled inadmissible. Still, the U.S. Prosecutor failed to produce a single witness who could identify Peltier as the shooter. Instead, the government tied a bullet casing found near the bodies of their agents to the alleged murder weapon, arguing that this gun had been the only one of its kind used during the shootout, and that it had belonged to Peltier.

Later, Mr. Peltier’s attorneys uncovered, in the FBI’s own documents, that more than one weapon of the type attributed to Peltier had been present at the scene and the FBI had intentionally concealed a ballistics report that showed the shell casing could not have come from the alleged murder weapon. Other troubling information emerged.." In item two we have more information on this case and the denial of an Executive Clemency Petition by President Clinton before he left office (while under threat of court action for lying under oath about his affair with Monica Lewinsky). Clinton did provide quite a few pardons, but they were for apparent underworld connections. Also, this item includes reasons why another Clinton administration would bring more of the same.

Not one candidate is really talking about having a new 9/11 investigation, except former Senator Mike Gravel, who has joined the commission for the NYC 9/11 Ballot Initiative. More on this and other actions requiring your attention could stop the next false flag event (no matter who may be elected President). Note the new Seymour Hersh article on what Israel bombed in Syria, and why this is a threat to Iran and all of us. I am in the process of reading THE SHELL GAME – which is about such a plan, in the form of an action-packed novel. Finally, the 9/11 truth movement is getting support from many talented professional writers, actors, filmmakers, bringing an awareness into the mainstream consciousness in an effective, non-threatening, actually entertaining manner. But corporate America will not be promoting such books and films. We need your actions; united we stand, divided we fall. These mediums will help us go beyond preaching to the choir.

Item three covers Instant Runoff Voting, and reasons for supporting the lesser of evils of corporate politicians, so we can have legislation passed to enable all of us to vote for our best choice without being manipulated into unconsciously supporting the worse of the evils. Idealism has its place, but strategic voting must become a reality, if we will have a chance in reclaiming a lost USA democracy. But we have to work together. Please note that this Friday, February 8, the Northampton Committee Against the War on Iraq is featuring the film entitled UNCOUNTED, which is about the election fraud that has taken place since 2004. This film will be held at the Media Education Foundation in Northampton, MA 7pm.

“If you assume that there's no hope, you guarantee
that there will be no hope. If you assume that there is an
instinct for freedom, there are opportunities to change things,
there's a chance for you to contribute to making a better world.
That's your choice."
