McCain was the architect of laws that violated the human and civil rights of the Dineh-Navajo in Arizona. The activities were condemned by the UN Human Rights Commission. This is a skeleton in his closet which, if it ever sees the light of day, could result in jeopardizing his run for the White House.
Let’s take a look in that closet:
What’s amazing to me is that he’s gotten away with it thus far, misleading the public that he’s supportive of the American Indians. Ironically, he was instrumental in organizing a phony tribal counsel which gave rise to false claims contesting the right of Dineh-Navajo to occupy lands they’d farmed for 500 years, which phony counsel of fake “Hopi” have been testifying year after year before the Senate as McCain authored bills to dispossess the Dineh-Navajo, without any testimony allowed by the actual owners of the farmlands. Just happens their lands are atop the largest Coal deposits in Arizona.
Sadly, thousands of the Dineh-Navajo have died just being relocated, and many have been forced to live on a Nuclear Waste superfund site, as a result of McCain’s conspiracy with the Coal and Power companies (Peabody Group and Bechtel/Mohave).
