Wow, incredible article. Of course, it would be nice to find out who killed those two agents. But rigging the case to send someone, anyone, to jail is just as evil. Excerpt:
In 1991, ( US Appeals Judge Gerald ) Heaney sent a letter to Congress stating he felt legally constrained not to grant a new trial and that the president might want to consider clemency for Peltier. In October of 2000, the judge affirmed to a senator that he still stood behind what he said, and added more.
"The FBI used improper tactics in securing Peltier's extradition from Canada and in otherwise investigating and trying the Peltier case," Heaney wrote. "At some point a healing process must begin. Favorable action by the President in the Leonard Peltier case would be an important step in this regard."
