Faded From View

Published: December 20, 2010, Author: JayTaber

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.
