A Connecticut Reader Remembers Kennewick Man, And Late 20th Century NRO
From: A Connecticut Reader [Email him]
Reading James Fulford’s “Recent Evolution (AKA Human Biodiversity) And Answer To The Kennewick Man Puzzle In The WASHINGTON POST” I also recalled that the original scientist who did the skull and facial recreation model (pictured right) had it look like “Jean Luc Picard” portrayed by the actor Patrick Stewart. It was clear that Kennewick Man was one of us. If one looks at the photo used by NPR, our tax dollars at work, in the Brenda Walker article you see what looks like a Tongan or Samoan.
At the time of Kennewick Man National Review Online had an article by a man named Miller, I think his first name was John. It told the tale of Bill Clinton having the Army Corps of Engineers destroying the site where Kennewick Man was discovered something on the order of 500 tons or more of sand and gravel were poured over the site then trees were planted.
According to the scientist who was the main man on Kennewick at the time it effectively destroyed any chance of archaeologists ever looking at that site again.
The Solutrean theory matches well with the archaeological evidence, at least before it is tampered with or destroyed by the powers that be.
Could it be that we are the FIRST NATION people, the true Native Americans?
James Fulford writes: The article the reader is talking about is “Remains of the Day Politics buries a key archeological find, By John J. Miller, NR’s national political reporter, NATIONAL REVIEW, March 8, 1999.”
But as an archeology reporter not bad. Miller wrote in 1999
When the Army Corps of Engineers couldn’t make one of North America’s most exciting archeological finds go away, it decided to perform a massive cover-up operation. Literally. First it dumped 500 tons of rock and gravel from helicopters onto the Columbia River discovery site. Then the Corps layered the shoreline near Kennewick, Wash., with more than 300 tons of dirt and logs. Finally, it planted thousands of trees on top of the remade terrain, once a muddy beach. “The Corps destroyed as much as possible as fast as possible,” says geologist Tom Stafford. “It’s like they hit it with a nuclear bomb.”
The whole Kennewick Man controversy was about the sensitivities of the local Indians, and a Federal law called NAGPRA—Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act—meant that they got to decide about whether the remains should be studied, or given a decent burial.
It is once again a case of science coming off second against political correctness and the fact that there are some things nobody wants to know.
