The news this week of the exhumed body of the Turkish President Turgut Ozal, who died in 1993, officially of heart failure. His body showed signs of several poisons, including radioactive polonium, and Yasser Arafat’s remains being exhumed for a murder inquiry, has led me to share a gut feeling I had in the summer of 2011, I will call it one of my conspiracy theories, because this is what it is, a theory, but no satire intended.
As for Yasser Arafat and the forensic experts from France, Switzerland, Russia etc. looking to prove something by looking for polonium-210 in Arafat’s remains, this is most likely a complete waste of time because of the very short half-life of this substance, not only that but I thought it was already a foregone conclusion polonium was used to assassinate the Chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and Palestinian leader. High levels of polonium-210 were found on Arafat’s toothbrush, clothing and keffiyeh.
Polonium was first made well known when it was used to kill KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko who turned on the Kremlin, was a critic of Putin, had been looking into the assassination of Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya and claimed in his book FSB agents had been responsible for the bombing of apartment blocks in Moscow and two other cities in 1999; it only takes a dose of polonium the size of a speck of pepper to be lethal.
Now do I believe polonium was used on Russell Means? I don’t think so but anything is possible these days; do I believe something was? I believe there’s good plausibility, and here’s why.
I have followed the American Indian movement, posted quite a few reports and videos of Russell Means(the founder of the Republic of Lakotah) over the years and am a subscriber to his newsletter; I remember in 2011 Russell announced he was going with a delegation to the United Nations Headquarters in New York to discuss with other nations the international character of treaties of the United States and the Lakotah Nation.
I remember thinking this isn’t good, Russell is going to be in harm’s way, and I hope he doesn’t get one of those CIA pin-pricks. It was just a gut feeling and still is. I did speak this feeling but never publicly or in writing, now in hind-site I wish I did.
Very shortly after, Russell was diagnosed with cancer.
Russell Means was trying to make the US government honor treaties, return stolen lands and be recognized by the international community through the UN, in his words “for the re-establishment of our freedom to be responsible” a sovereign nation (Republic of Lakotah)inside the borders of the United States.
Here are a couple other quotes from Russell Means
“Every policy now the Palestinians are enduring was practiced on the American Indian.”
“What the American Indian Movement says is that the American Indians are the Palestinians of the United States, and the Palestinians are the American Indians of Europe.”
Russell Means an arrow in the side of The new World Order:
