Last 3 voicemails from Lenny…

July 4th, 2005

Last 3 voicemails from Lenny...

This includes his message saying he was called into his commanding officer’s quarters and reprimanded. Remember, he signed up for the National Guard… he is now patrolling the streets of Baghdad.

I was in DC all last week working with members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, so I had not been able to post his last 2 recordings. I have included them here. I have also included his last one this morning.

This is where he is thanking the activists and the organization I work for (PDA), which by the way has NO association to this site, although we are in solidarity of his message. The launch of this site was my independent venture.

This is where he talks about why this is an occupation, and why we must leave the Iraqi people to their own self-sufficient governance. Also, he tells a story of beauty in a time of darkness. Way to go for the American Troops! This story made me very happy and at the same time very sad…

This is the final voicemail saying he will not be posting for some time because he was “called in”...

On that note… I will be taking specific “operational” material down which Lenny’s commanders instructed him to do. He has called me and told me the specifics of the material that needs to be taken down. I will take it down in the next 48 hours. For now… pray for him, and keep our brave troops in your hearts on this July 4th.

Damn the man for putting us in this situation, and remember: it is because of our leaders that we are in this mess. Shed no shame for our brave men and women who are put in harm’s way because of this President. Hold your resentment toward our President, not these brave men and women. Hold those folks in your hearts!

Peace,
Kevin Spidel

The evil of the mind is conquered by the goodness of the heart

Folks, I have decided to write you this email in response to those who are wondering in their own views why I am apparently violating the “rules”. Since I don’t have much time here is the gist of it: I believe American soldiers (my brothers and sisters) are being killed needlessy over here in this lie we call the “Occupation of Iraq”. To me it is a great offense to the laws of humanity to have American soldiers die needlessly in a place far from their native home when this evil practice could be stopped. When should a person, a human being if you will, speak out ? Well, for me these fellow soldiers are my loved ones, and if I were ever going to speak out about anything it would be to save the lives of those I love. To have human beings sacrifice their lives for a lie is a violation of their human rights, and so there you have it – I believe that not only are my human rights being violated but those of my fellow soldiers as well.

To me it is no different than knowing that people are being murdered and that a fellow human being has the supreme moral obligation to prevent these murders from taking place. These are not the actions that an unreasonable person would take but to the contrary – ones that a very reasonable and humane person would take.

I know now in my gut that I have angered and scared very poweful people. Now, I know that I will probably pay the price but I am a human being first, and to me it is then condoning a war crime to stand by and let what I am seeing with my own eyes and other soldiers’ eyes take place over here in Iraq. I am being threatened for these reasons that I have stated: the evil that is in the minds of men being conquered by the good that is in the hearts.

Leonard Clark
soon to be a prisoner of conscience

P.S. If I am cut off with communications with my wife and daughter please tell my friends to tell them that I will always love them and to trust in GOD.
