Peltier Now Political Prisoner of Obama

( – promoted by navajo)

I am so, so so naive.

Since Obama was willing to have a beer with a professor and an officer of the law over racial issues, why then shouldn’t he meet with Ben Carnes to discuss freeing Leonard Peltier?

What was I thinking, that Obama would actually free Peltier on his 65th birthday, September 12th?

I Am Barack Obama’s Political Prisoner Now By LEONARD PELTIER

After releasing an original and continuing disciple of death cult leader Charles Manson who attempted to shoot President Gerald Ford, an admitted Croatian terrorist, and another attempted assassin of President Ford under the mandatory 30-year parole law, the U.S. Parole Commission deemed that my release would “promote disrespect for the law.”

Even after Peltier’s sister chained herself to the white house iron gates…

Ben Carnes ends fast today for Leonard Peltier at White House


Given the complexion of the three recent federal parolees, it might seem that my greatest crime was being Indian. But the truth is that my gravest offense is my innocence. In Iran, political prisoners are occasionally released if they confess to the ridiculous charges on which they are dragged into court, in order to discredit and intimidate them and other like-minded citizens. The FBI and its mouthpieces have suggested the same, as did the parole commission in 1993, when it ruled that my refusal to confess was grounds for denial of parole.

Nothing except for the fact he is innocent, and how nice that he ignored Carnes’ and Peltier’s sister.

To claim innocence is to suggest that the government is wrong, if not guilty itself. The American judicial system is set up so that the defendant is not punished for the crime itself, but for refusing to accept whatever plea arrangement is offered and for daring to compel the judicial system to grant the accused the right to right to rebut the charges leveled by the state in an actual trial. Such insolence is punished invariably with prosecution requests for the steepest possible sentence, if not an upward departure from sentencing guidelines that are being gradually discarded, along with the possibility of parole.

Again – I am so,so naive.

Since Obama was willing to have a beer with a professor and an officer of the law over racial issues, why then shouldn’t he meet with Ben Carnes to discuss freeing Leonard Peltier?

Being the Commander-in-Chief must not command the necessary respect from our Intelligence; otherwise, they would respect Obama’s decision to free Peltier if he made that decision, wouldn’t they? I guess not. They’re in charge, and he’s not.



I genuinely like President Obama, to a fault even. He’s an example I would hold up to anyone as embodying the strong moral character we want the future generations to display, and that’s why in addition to everything else about this it’s so disappointing. I never expected anything out of w, but I catch myself thinking “That’s my man” with Obama. So, “That’s my man” who is letting Peltier rot in prison, and who didn’t give Carnes or Peltier’s sister the time of day.


  1. In august just after our Sundance I big glass of water spilled onto my computer and killed its’ old ass. At first it was frustrating not to have internet acess but as time has gone by I’ve gotten used to it and liking the free time. After being online for several years I was used to getting my news there but now I can understand why most Americans are so damn dumb, all we see are a few headlines of lies mixed with a little truth.
    Thank you WR for writing about my brother Leonard once more. The whiteman is murdering another native leader just like they’ve always done and like always no one gives a fuck. Revenge is paramount to christian americans and they’re revenging themselves on the only one they have power over. It’s taken them thirty years and millions of dollars to distort history and distroy Leonards good name and support but they have the power and money so truth and justice have no chance. This is america after all, where those guilty of genocide won and rule.

  2. Great seeing you. I’ve moved and had a few computer problems myself, and america with the little “a.”  We should stop capitalizing it. Kind of like “w.”
