FR Exclusive-Soldier Lawsuit Atty is Kerry Antiwar Activist-Lawsuits Instigated
Various sources - links in post | 12/6/04 | Enlightiator

Posted on 12/06/2004 8:33:57 PM PST by Enlightiator

AP articles published on the internet at numerous news outlets, including CBS, tell the story of 8 US soldiers named as plaintiffs in a lawsuit over enlistment extensions they considered unfair. The AP article as published on the CBS website, Soldiers Decry 'Unfair' Extensions, states:

The lawsuit contends the policy is a breach of the service contract because it extends the length of service without a soldier's consent. It also alleges the contracts were misleading because they make no reference to the policy, said Staughton Lynd, an attorney for the soldiers.

No mention is made of Staughton Lynd's significant past and current anti-war activism in the CBS AP article. And even more curiously, the later AP articles have been revised to delete references of Staughton Lynd's involvement altogether, although as indicated by the results of a Google news search - the search results quote Lynd, yet the articles no longer have reference to him. (Google search results will be posted at end of this post).

In contrast to the AP article, a story today by Monica Davey of The New York Times, "Eight Soldiers Plan to Sue over Army's Stop-loss Policy" is to be commended for its disclosure concerning the activism and affiliations of the lawyers involved in the lawsuit:

Mr. Qualls was one of the first soldiers to find Mr. Lobel and Staughton Lynd, another lawyer now working with the Center for Constitutional Rights on the case and whose antiwar activities date to the Vietnam era. As Mr. Qualls wandered the Internet one day in Iraq, he said, he came across news reports of a National Guardsman in California who this summer had become the first to challenge stop-loss in court.

Davey even goes on to ask a very important question:

Asked whether antiwar forces were instigating this lawsuit, Mr. Lobel, who like his co-counsel describes himself as openly opposed to the war in Iraq, laughed and said no. The soldiers and their families came on their own, he said.

That however, does not appear to be an "accurate" answer. Several anti-war and activist websites contain the following soliciation:

Beat the Back-Door Draft! Join the Suit!
Class Action Lawsuit to Defend Troops Under Stop-Loss!


For Immediate Release

Any soldiers presently in Iraq or home on leave who are under Stop Loss Orders:

A class action lawsuit is being brought by the Center for Constitutional Rights on behalf of GIs stationed in Iraq who are under Stop Loss Orders.

If you want to join on to the Class Action lawsuit against Stop Loss, please contact Staughton Lynd immediately at

SALYND@aol.com

The Center for Constitutional Rights will file a lawsuit in federal district court for the District of Columbia on Monday December 6, requesting an injunction hearing December 9th or 10th.

If you or a family member can attend the press conference on December 6th, please contact Staughton Lynd or CCR, 212-614-6464.

----------------------

The above soliciation appears at the websites http://www.bringthemhomenow.org/index.html, which appears to be an anti-war activist site, and at www.dubyasworld.com (link to Google cache), an anti- George Bush site.

A man named Staughton Lynd states why he supports John Kerry at http://www.firstofthemonth.org/9_11/9_11_choosy.html

And is this the profile of the same man representing our troups? I do believe so, unless there are two Staughton Lynd's in Ohio who are staunch anti-war activists:

http://www.swarthmore.edu/Library/peace/DG051-099/dg099Lynd.html

Staughton Lynd (b. 1929), son of Robert S. Lynd and Helen Merrel Lynd (writers of the famed Middletown: a Study in Contemporary American Culture), earned his doctorate at Columbia University in 1961, and taught history at Spelman College (Atlanta, Georgia) and Yale University. Shortly after his marriage, he declared himself a conscientious objector, and was inducted into the army as a noncombatant, from which he was given an "undesirable discharge" in 1954. Staughton worked as a tenant organizer for the University Settlement House in New York City (NY) in 1958. He won the William P. Lyons Essay Contest in 1960 for his writing of "Anti-Federalism in Duchess County, New York." Staughton was the director of freedom schools for the Mississippi Summer Project in 1964, and organized the first march against the Vietnam War in Washington (DC), held on April 17, 1965, and, he organized the Assembly of Unrepresented People in Aug. 1965. In 1965 he made a Christmas trip to Hanoi with Herbert Aptheker and Tom Hayden, defying U.S. passport regulations; as a result, his academic career went into decline, suggesting that he was blacklisted for his political leanings. He graduated from the University of Chicago Law School in 1976, after which he devoted much of his energy to labor law, becoming Associate Director and Litigation Director of Northeast Ohio Legal Services. He wrote or co-wrote many books, including The Resistance (with Michael Ferber), Intellectual Origins of American Radicalism, and Solidarity Unionism.

Who knows? Maybe Kerry is still behind this. Maybe they tried to pull it off before the election but couldn't get it done in time. Or maybe Kerry decided not to pull the trigger on it because he thought he was in decent shape.

Obviously they've been working for a while to gather a group of people willing to sue.

Expect more of this type of stuff as long as
Hanoi Kerry is allowed to keep his seat in the US Senate.

There is no need to impeach Hanoi Kerry from the US Senate

Someone needs to tell these "men" that the UCMJ has nothing to do with either the Constitution or the National Labor Relations Board.

These "men" signed a contract. As I did years ago. Many men I work with as an Air Reserve Technician were due to retire during Desert Storm. All were kept in "Stop Loss" status until a month or more after hostilities ceased.

A second, larger group is now in currently in "Stop Loss" Status. And expect to remain in that Status for at least another year.

To quote a favored cartoon Super-Hero to his Sidekick:

"You knew the job was dangerous when you took it!"

These "men' are going to lose BIG and they are going to stay In-Country long after a decision has been taken!

Jack.

I couldn't believe this one idiot in the suit. He joined in 2003 and complained because he was activated and couldn't just do a weekend per month. Guess he figured he could just get the free schooling then go home with no commitment.

I hope he gets hard time in Leavenworth.

The lawsuit contends the policy is a breach of the service contract because it extends the length of service without a soldier's consent.

It's in the contract. This lawsuit is pure liberal crappola...

Yes. Here's what my Dad's WWII "Terms of Enlistment" says about length of service:

"Enlistment for the duration of the war or other emergency, plus 6 months, subject to the discretion of the President or otherwise according to law."

Since the Pres is the Commander-in-Chief, I assume that the "subject to the discretion of the President" phrase would still be in ALL service contracts...

When I read the NYT article last night ... this part caught my attention

One soldier's wife, from New York City, said she received an e-mail message from Military Families Speak Out, an antiwar group, about the possibility of a lawsuit, and urged her husband to be part of it.

However, I had no idea this lawyer was buds with Jane Fonda's hubby

ALL of the current anti-war notables knew each other back in the Viet Nam era. Thye've kept in touch over the years, waiting for a perfect opportunity to relive the 60's/70's.

To them, Bush = Nixon, and Iraq = Viet Nam. They're all getting old - this could be their last chance to finish what they started 30 years ago.

"I couldn't believe this one idiot in the suit. He joined in 2003 and complained because he was activated and couldn't just do a weekend per month. Guess he figured he could just get the free schooling then go home with no commitment."

There is an older pencil-neck geek that I work with whose son joined the Army Reserve for the GI bill so he could pay for college. This guy knows his stuff in his field and he is respected in our office for his intellect. One day at lunch (before the election..he's a big Lurch supporter) he starts in on how his son joined to get college paid for, not to go to war.

Well, you know yours truly (Proud US Army vet) wasn't going to leave THAT comment just hanging out there unchallenged. I laid out my argument pretty vociferously and at the end he said "Yes, you are technically correct, but,.." and he never got any further that that 'but' before I told him that "Yes, I AM correct, and there IS no but"

This was on the day of the first debate and from that day on we haven't heard him utter one word about his son, the US Army, the debates, the election, Kerry, nothing... I know I'll never be on his Christmas card list, but I have been in position to need his work expertise since then. At least he knows enough not to withhold that expertise, because then he wouldn't be doing his job.

However, as with all retro movements this one will be exposed for its 'vintage' roots, seen as 'quaint' by modern Americans, and will be unproductive.

This is another episode in the sad theater of American socialism.

I was curious about this lawsuit from the first day I heard about it.

Is it related-in any way-to the one being filed on behalf of another officer, who is being represented by Barry Slotnick?

Or is that something altogether separate and distinct?

I have not found a link to Lynd and his organization to the attorney Barry Slotnick, who is represented Captain Jay Ferriola. I did find it interesting that Monica Davey of the New Your Times also covered these cases of soldiers retaining attorneys to fight enlistment extensions (see my link in my original post to her story on the current lawsuit by Lynd and co.):

The unfortunate aspect of this is, the left wing has so demonized our Armed Forces and intelligence gathering agencies that it would be next to impossible to prosecute someone for that crime.

If someone like Aldrich Ames-or Robert Hansen, for that matter-can't be executed, I don't see how they could go after a run of the mill bum like the person this piece focuses on.

This the same group ( CCR) who is working with the Iraqis in Germany pressing for Rumsfeld to be brought up on War crimes under German law.

And the same folks involved in Abu Ghraib and more, with Michael Rattner or Michael Ratter as some in the media like to mis spell it.

Guantanamo detainees win right to privacy with lawyers

HERE IS WHAT RATTNER HAS TO SAY IN GERMANY

HERE IS A SEARCH FOR MICHAEL RATTER ( same guy? I think so!)

Seems this group of lawyers in New York has been VERY busy under minding America and our troops while we have been sleeping.
