FREEDOM FOR LEONARD PELTIER w/ Mr. Peak & Chief TwoDog >>

EPISODE #47

AIRED: 03-30-2014

Today we look at the heroic story of Leonard Peltier & the American Indian Movement on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Peltier is a legendary political prisoner who was convicted in 1977 in the shootings of two FBI agents— except as usual there’s more to the story, Even the Judge in his original case has called for his release from prison, joining Amnesty International, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Rev. Jesse Jackson.

The problem is Peltier’s gun doesn’t match the bullet fragments in the killings. He drove a different style of vehicle altogether than the one identified by police & witnesses recanted, stating the FBI had threatened to take their children off the Pine Ridge Reservation unless they signed false statements against Peltier.

The whole world seems to recognize this was a travesty of injustice. The question is what are we going to do about it?? My guests are Mr. Peaks and Chief Charles Twodog from the Lakota Tribe in South Dakota. We discuss 67 year old Peltier’s serious health problems, including his diabetes & the failure of 6 blood transfusions, which have almost killed him. We talk about solutions, including the possibility of a compassionate release from prison.

A staggering and sober conversation about Israel’s apartheid against Palestine. Israel’s attack on Islam’s sacred Al Aqsa Mosque and Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, during Ramadan no less, look like a calculated effort by Bibi Netanyahu to manipulate Joe Biden’s puppet handlers to Israel’s defense. If so, it has backfired. While most U.S media...
