According to the Bush administration, the war in Iraq ended in May 2003, when the president pronounced mission accomplished from the deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln. Yet, fighting, resistance, and American casualties continue. Stephen Pelletiere argues that it is Iraqi suspicion of the Americans' motives-the belief that the United States is out to tear the state apart-that is fueling the current rebellion.

This engaging collection of Native American profiles examines these individuals' unique life experiences within the larger context of U.S. history.

Contra the rating assigned it in the previous "review" by John Trimbach, this is an excellent, though far from comprehensive, reference work. Since Trimbach uses his purported concern with the quality of the biographies therein as a pretext to gratuitously smear the book's editor, Bruce Johansen, as well as Russell Means and other leaders/members of the American Indian Movement (AIM)--an organization targeted for "neutralization" by the FBI during the mid-70s--it seems appropriate to have a peek at Johnnie's own background. He is the son of/current collaborator with Joe Trimbach, former special agent in charge of the FBI's Minneapolis field office. That's right, the very same Joe Trimbach who was found to have given false testimony during the "Wounded Knee Trial" of AIM leaders Dennis Banks and Russell Means in 1974, to have suborned perjury from witnesses for the government during the same trial, engineered the dropping of rape charges against one such witness (Louis Moves Camp), and presided over a disinformation campaign designed to discredit Banks, Means, and AIM in general after the trial judge, Louis Nichols, dismissed the case against Banks and Means on grounds that the FBI--meaning Joe Timbach, who was not only a major offender in court, but in charge of the other agents involved--had "polluted the waters of justice." And that's just the tip of the iceberg, where ol' Joe's concerned.

Like father, like son, it seems. At least as regards the slimy vocation of character assassination.
Professor Johansen has spent a career of tenured insulation parroting the lies of American Indian Movement rapists and killers. In this continuing betrayal of authentic Indian history, the professor spouts countless lies and distortions in the name of supposed deference to his modern-day Indian heroes; from the manufactured grievances of convicted killer Leonard Peltier, to the shameless make-over of the misogynic rapist and murderer, Russell Means, the professor blindly fronts for a small group of thugs who brought misery and destruction to countless Indian people. If Ward Churchill was banned for his historical lies, then why isn't Professor Johansen, doubly guilty, allowed to pass himself off as a teflon educator of young people? Such a sorry state of affairs in our American education system.
