Faded From View
Americans by and large are immune to outrage over petty lying and graft. Slush funds, tax evasion and conspiracy to defraud—ordinary stuff.
Then Wikileaks shined a light on the pathogens that had managed to reinfect the ideoscape after Watergate and Iran-Contra had faded from view. Hillary Clinton caught spying on UN officials, Barack Obama funding death squads in West Papua, both carrying water for Goldman Sachs and the carbon cartel in Copenhagen and Cancun.
Neither very sophisticated. Certainly not as sophisticated as their supporters would like to believe; they just have all the resources to threaten and bribe, and think that is enough to cover their hide.
Following on the heels of the Wikileaks exposure of dirty tricks by State under Secretary Clinton vis-a-vis Copenhagen, Cancun and the Indigenous Peoples Forum, it may be a good time for the National Congress of American Indians to follow the Assembly of First Nations example in pressing more forcefully for implementation of UNDRIP in domestic policy and law.
Real News has been dogging Cablegate, and Indian Country Today has covered the fraud of Copenhagen and Cancun. I am wondering how long until these alternative media discussions about the collusion between State, the UN and others to prevent indigenous participation in climate change talks becomes common knowledge.
