(WASHINGTON, DC) - DEAR PRESIDENT OBAMA: PLEASE COMMIT A HOLY ACT & release LEONARD PELTIER— US Political Prisoner #89637-132— via EXECUTIVE CLEMENCY. For 38 years he has been torn from his People, his family, his grandchildren. He is now 68 and ailing. We plead with you to give him his last few years as a free man.

We pray for you & for Leonard—two extraordinary human beings on this Mother Earth.

We can arrange an OVAL OFFICE CEREMONY with LEONARD HIMSELF & close family members present, including his grandhildren…Also LAKOTA HOLY MAN ARVOL LOOKING HORSE, 19TH KEEPER OF THE SACRED WHITE BUFFALO PIPE of the GREAT SIOUX NATION, who will perform a GREAT FORGIVENESS CEREMONY with a sanctified BUFFALO SKULL right there in the Oval Office.

Let this be THE GREAT HEALING Arvol has long pleaded and prayed for.

Please invite former New Mexico Governor and UN Ambassador Bill Richardson, who for decades has called for Leonard’s release, and redemption from false charges. Also Desmond Tutu, who has championed Leonard’s release for decades. Also, Whoopi Goldberg—who has advocated Leonard’s cause for many years—as have tens of millions of informed & good-hearted people around the world, many no doubt swelling your emails with their pleas.

I feel sure the exemplary Spirit of the late Senator Daniel Inuoye will be hovering among us, wearing a radiant smile that this innocent man’s false imprisonment has ended in a mutually agreed Great Healing Ceremony & a Writ of Executive Clemency.

Mr. Obama—IT IS TIME. I beg you. Make a Holy Act of a Great Deed!

May God speed your decision.

Perhaps there's a good reason Peltier has lost all his appeals: “This story is true.” Leonard Peltier, assuring his supporters that his alibi, a mysterious Mr. X, shot FBI agents Ron Williams and Jack Coler. Recently, Peltier's own laywer, Mike Kuzma, admitted that the story was a complete concoction. “I seen Joe when he pulled it out of the trunk and I looked at him when he put it on, and he gave me a smile.” Leonard Peltier, standing over the bodies of Jack Coler and Ron Williams, moments after their heads were blown off, commenting on Joe Stuntz wearing Jack Coler’s green FBI jacket taken from his car trunk, as quoted in Peter Matthiessen’s, In the Spirit of Crazy Horse. “I didn’t think nothing about it at the time: all I could think of was, We got to get out of here!” Leonard Peltier, reacting to Joe Stuntz wearing Jack Coler’s jacket, from In the Spirit of Crazy Horse. Peltier could hear the chatter over the FBI car radio from other agents who were racing to the scene and attempting to re-establish contact with Agent Williams in response to his calls for help. “Peter, you put my life in jeopardy and you put the lives of my family in jeopardy by putting that bullshit in your books. Why didn’t you call me and ask me if it was true?” Dean Butler, chastising Peter Matthiessen for including Peltier’s lone alibi, Mr. X, in his book, In the Spirit of Crazy Horse. Note: An AIM member, David Hill, reportedly played the role of Mr. X in a video aired on American television. “The two witnesses testified outside the presence of the jury that after their testimony at trial, they had been threatened by Peltier himself that if they did not return to court and testify that their earlier testimony had been induced by F.B.I. threats, their lives would be in danger.” United States v. Peltier, 585 F. 2d 314, U.S. App. Decision September 14, 1978. “The motherf---er was begging for his life but I shot him anyway.” Court testimony, US v Arlo Looking Cloud, 2004, recounting Leonard Peltier, boasting in the Marlon Brando motor home about shooting Ron Williams, as heard by Dennis Banks, Ka-Mook Banks, Bernie Lafferty, and (soon-to-be-murdered) Anna Mae Pictou Aquash. According to the autopsy report, Ron Williams died with his right hand held up in front of his face; there were powder burns on his fingers. "... the greater probability is that you yourself fired the fatal shots... It would be unjust to treat the slaying of these F.B.I. agents, while they lay wounded and helpless, as if your actions had been part of a gun battle. Neither the state of relations between Native American militants and law enforcement at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation prior to June 26, 1975, nor the exchanges of gunfire between individuals at the Jumping Bull Compound and the law enforcement agents who arrived there during the hours after Agents Coler and Williams were murdered, explains or mitigates the crimes you committed...Your release on parole would promote disrespect for the law in contravention of 18 U.S.C...." Leonard Peltier’s 1999 Parole Board, commenting on his aiding and abetting conviction. “I never thought my commitment would mean sacrificing like this, but I was willing to do so nonetheless. And really, if necessary, I’d do it all over again, because it was the right thing to do.” Peltier’s statement to supporters, 2/6/2010.

Ok, so if Richardson was championing his release, why no Presidential Pardon before Bill Clinton left office?

I heard that if the incredible man had not fought for what he believed in, things would be all the worse.  White men represent the devil and there is little anyone can do to convince me otherwise.
