Who will tell Amy Goodman ...
Thought you might be interested in this:
I had a professor who worked at the University of Colorado at the same time Ward Churchill was there. My professor was very active in Latin American solidarity movements, and is Latin American himself. Because of his support for groups like the Sandinistas and the FMLN in El Salvador, Churchill eventually threatened his life. The reason behind it was the treatment of the Miskito Indians, who didn't want to be part of the Sandinista state. The interesting thing is that according to this source Churchill was networking with neo-cons to get weapons to the Miskitos, specifically that he was on the phone to Elliot Abrams about it.
It makes you wonder which side he's really on, considering that he's one of the few people out there to unambiguously advocate violence.
