A Letter To Senator Ted Kennedy 
cc: Barack Obama - Will You Make A Call For ME?

April 10, 2008

Dear Senator Kennedy:

I must first say that I always was and still am a true believer in what you described in your speech at the 1980 Democratic Convention

"I am a part of all that I have met
To [Tho] much is taken, much abides
That which we are, we are --
One equal temper of heroic hearts
Strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield."

For all those whose cares have been our concern, the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die.

And you also said:

"You know," he continued, "very few of us are that gullible." And four years later when the Republicans tried that trick again, Franklin Roosevelt asked, "Can the Old Guard pass itself off as the New Deal? I think not. We have all seen many marvelous stunts in the circus, but no performing elephant could turn a handspring without falling flat on its back."

Recently, you endorsed Barack Obama for President in what is the most moving speeches I have heard since originally embracing the words and the spirit of your brothers in the 1960's.

You asked to us to believe again. I would so like to abide by your request, but I have a condition that can easily be met with a brief moment of your time and the signature from your hand to prove to me - and thousands if not millions of other Americans and people around the world - that there is something to believe in, that there is reason to believe and that there is tangible proof that I should trust you again and take your advice to help elect a man who says he represents change you can believe in.

The audacity of hope cannot replace the necessity for action.

I ask you to do one simple thing: write a letter to Senator Patrick Leahy and the Judiciary Committee. I am told that only a letter from one Senator is required to open an inquiry. I do not think that is too much to ask. There is ample evidence.

The real questions are, do you still have the courage to stand up - one more time - to a pressing issue that has never been resolved? And if not, will Senator Obama truly carry the mantle forward into the next generation?

The letter I request you write to Senator Leahy would address an issue that  you are uniquely qualified to address given your involvement on the Church Committee, and as expressed in this letter to Senator Leahy from an attorney representing hundreds of victims of active, ongoing, violent, life-threatening U.S. Government crimes against American citizens - AKA state-sponsored terrorism against its own people - as expressed in the summary of the Church Committee:

Unsavory and vicious tactics have been employed -- including anonymous attempts to break up marriages, disrupt meetings, ostracize persons from their professions, and provoke target groups into rivalries that might result in deaths.
 
Intelligence agencies have served the political and personal objectives of presidents and other high officials. While the agencies often committed excesses in response to pressure from high officials in the Executive branch and Congress, they also occasionally initiated improper activities and then concealed them from officials whom they had a duty to inform.
 
Governmental officials -- including those whose principal duty is to enforce the law --have violated or ignored the law over long periods of time and have advocated and defended their right to break the law.

I assure you, these same crimes and unconstitutional atrocities - not wiretapping - are occurring now.

I hope you will still believe that the egregious crimes of members of the Federal Government then are still as egregious today, just as you must certainly be aware that they are occurring at this moment.

I submit to you that you have been the standard bearer for so many American people who have trusted you so long.

But, if you turn your back on this issue, whether justice is served in the end or not - but, if YOU turn your back on this issue, then I will know that in fact you, and the United States Government, have simply trained alot of elephants to do amazing new tricks. And, that the lead elephant's name is Jack Barnes.

Meanwhile, old elephants like me will never apologize for believing in the spirit of America. I will never apologize for taking the pledge of allegiance seriously. I will never apologize for standing up for Democracy as I did in 2000 and since. Thus, the genesis of this site and dilemma.

And I will never feel anything but contempt for a pathetic Federal Agency or government that harms citizens for  - their published criteria - being a suspected terrorist for quoting the Constitution, being a Christian, wearing blue jeans, owning an almanac or reading a book, and counting votes in an election. I do all these things, and will continue to do so.

You've asked me to believe. I've asked you to give me a reason.

I have the audacity to hope you will... and the tenacity to hold this government criminally responsible for their actions against thousands of Americans in such tortuous ways.  That is, after all, what the pledge of allegiance is all about, isn't it?

I've kept my oath. Please keep yours.

Sincerely,

 

Charles Rehn

PS: No wonder the Intelligence Agencies have taken out insurance to cover the costs of their prosecutions.  It's time to revoke their insurance.

"For the great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie - deliberate, contrived and dishonest - but the myth - persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the cliches of our forebearers. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinions without the discomfort of thought."

-- John F. Kennedy 1962
