FBI office in N.Y. releases Peltier documents


The FBI office in Buffalo, New York, has released about 800 pages of documents agents collected on American Indian Movement activist Leonard Peltier.

According to an attorney for Peltier, the documents include notes about sources within the Seneca Nation. In the notes, sources said they saw Peltier at Indian events in the Buffalo-area.

Peltier is serving two consecutive life sentences for the June 1975 deaths of two FBI agents on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.
