So would aiding and abetting terrorists to kill US soldiers qualify as behavior unbefitting of a sitting US senator?
On October 12, Scott Swett at the American Thinker reported that Senator Barabara Boxer (D-CA) along with Representatives Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) and Henry Waxman (D-CA) secured diplomatic courtesy letters that allowed anti-American Code Pink activists to travel to Fallujah, Iraq. The radicals traveled to Fallujah in late 2004 to donate $600,000 worth of humanitarian aid to the people who had just killed 51 Americans and wounded 560 more earlier that month. Operation Phantom Fury in Fallujah was the heaviest US urban combat since the Vietnam War.
After the report was published at American Thinker the article was deleted at Islam Online. But, thanks to the internet archive a copy of the article is still available: (view copy at article link)
The article says that Code Pink:
Secured diplomatic courtesy letters from US Senators Barbara Boxer of California and Raul Grijalva of Arizona and Congressmen Dennis Kucinich of Ohio and Henry Waxman of California.
Swett reported on how Barbara Boxer and Code Pink assisted terrorists in Iraq:
Perhaps the most revealing window into Boxers true feelings towards our military is her close alliance with Code Pink, a radical leftist group that reviles American troops as terrorists and assassins while praising their enemies as freedom fighters. For years, Code Pink has viciously harassed wounded veterans and their families outside Walter Reed Hospital, even telling the mother of a slain Navy Seal that her son deserved to die. Code Pink actively supports terror groups such as Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, the Taliban, Hezbollah and al Qaeda.
The Code Pink website repeatedly praises our beloved Barbara Boxer. And why not? Boxer has worked with the group and supported its goals on many occasions. In early 2005, Boxer was the only member of the Senate to oppose certifying the Electoral College result that returned George Bush to office for a second term. Code Pink hosted rallies and participated in various demonstrations and marches to defend democracy against the results of the 2004 elections. They wrapped up the event at Senator Boxers California office, singing her songs of thanks.
Code Pinks leaders had just returned from Fallujah, Iraq, where 51 Americans had been killed and 560 wounded in the US Marines heaviest urban combat since the Vietnam War. Code Pink delivered $600,000 in cash and supplies to the very insurgents the Marines had been fighting against - quite literally giving aid and comfort to Americas enemies in a time of war. As noted in Islam Online, a diplomatic courtesy letter from Barbara Boxer helped make the trip possible.
On returning home from their trip to Fallujah Code Pink founder Medea Benjamin told reporters:
I dont know of any other case in history in which the parents of fallen soldiers collected medicine for the families of the other side, said Medea Benjamin, the founding director of Global Exchange, a human rights group. It is a reflection of a growing movement in the United States opposed to the unjust nature of this war, she said.
This must have made Barbara Boxer very happy. Unfortunately, our corrupt media will continue to hide this horrible event from the American people. Hat Tip Opaobie
Get this to Carly asap!
The VFW must be proud of itself.
“Code Pink”... That is such a pretty name. They must love people, our troops and our country. I am sure we can trust them.... </s
I hold anyone who votes for Boxer as culpable as her in this.
Talk about a jaw dropper. JEEEEZ these demonrats have no limits to their evil.
Talk about target rich subject material here. I just cannot understand the inability of republican candidates to go for the throat.
Why is this not running 24/7.
Sorry to say - but I dont give a F about the miners in Chile when stories like this are out there.
I would love to see the demon sheep do a TV ad on this.
Then again, in Kalipornia, it might boost Boxer.
The VFW is apparently very angry with their own PAC which they have no control of I guess.
I called up the VFW and laid into them about endorsing Boxer. The response: "You'll need to call our PAC office. VFW doesn't endorse candidates." The number she gave to me was for a FAX. I called the VFW and laid into them some more.
Bump for home: I will post this as a Facebook update. For those who are on FB, I suggest you do so also. Got to get the word out somehow!
Kristinn, I think this is a huge story. How about rolling out the FR PR machine on this?
“The VFW is apparently very angry with their own PAC which they have no control of I guess.”
Yeah, good point- I should have clarified. The VFW leaders are striking back at the PAC, thankfully:
...It all seems like an Alinskyite tactic is going on here...leftists worm their way in to traditionally non-left leaning organizations (VFW, NRA, the Scranton-Catholic Nuns, etc.) and then start manipulating everything...
Although I think it will take generations if there is to be any real change anywhere in the Middle East, with that being said the children they where helping where the ones jumping for joy as they help hang 4 Americans from a bridge in Fallujah after dragging them thru the streets, and burning,mutating the bodies.
Now I ask the anti war protesters is that how Americans treat there captured, no our guys go to prison for taking a picture of the enemy in their underpants.
Looks like this might be growing some legs...

"The co-founder of the radical anti-war group Code Pink [Jodie Evans] has bundled more than $50,000 for Sen. Barack Obamas presidential campaign, and pro-troops groups are demanding that he return the money."
From National Public Radio (NPR):

"Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has been visiting countries such as China, Iran and Russia as part of an effort to build a 'strategic alliance' of interests not beholden to the United States. He considers the United States his arch enemy.":
