Posted on 01/01/2005 6:29:45 AM PST by kristinn
American citizen Medea Benjamin, a leader of the anti-American group Code Pink, announced in Amman, Jordan this week that Code Pink, it's parent group Global Exchange and Families for Peace have donated $600,000 in aid to the 'other side' in the terrorist haven city of Fallujah in Iraq.
This news, which has been ignored by the media worldwide, was reported by Agence France Press but was picked up by only two small news outlets:
"I don't 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 is the positive face of the American people which we would like to show ... so that we are not looked at with animosity but with love. Our hearts go out to the people of Fallujah and to all the Iraqi people," she said.
Medea Benjamin and those working with her, opposed the liberation of the people of Iraq from the brutal reign of Saddam Hussein. They call themselves human rights activists, yet they support the worst human rights violators in the world from Fidel Castro to the terrorists in Fallujah.
With American troops in harm's way in Fallujah, Medea Benjamin's proud admission that she and her cohorts are giving aid to the 'other side' should be grounds for her arrest for treason.
Code Pink along with their anti-American friends International ANSWER--whose leader Ramsey Clark is one of Saddam Hussein's defense lawyers--will be protesting President Bush at his Inaugural Parade on January 20, using permits issued by the U.S. government.
Links to AFP's reports on Medea Benjamin's latest adventures:
It is up to the Justice Department to deal with this. However, Congress should investigate these group's activities. Especially because most of them are tax exempt 501(c)3s.
The 109th Congress convenes this week. Please call your representatives and senators to demand they take action to protect our soldiers from these traitors.
And call the office of the U.S. Attorney General: 202-353-1555
Good. This is good info. Next time I'm called a racist and a warmonger, I'll point this out.
The Code Pink Commies gave a half-mil to Al Qaeda in Iraq? Gee, why am I not surprised??
"American citizen Medea Benjamin"
Should be "Former American Citizen"
Think of the bright side. Its 600K less they have to spend on elections.
two words-firing squad...
This crap will continue, and get worse, up until the time that our Justice Dept. decides to start prosecuting these clowns and their ilk.
And this is legal??
And would somebody please tell me just why it is that the US Park Service, Park Police, US Secret Service, etc. are allowing Medea Benjamin and the rest of her "coalition" of "peace groups" to be anywhere near the President or the Inaugural Parade route; especially with her open support of the people who are killing our soldiers???
It should be completely obvious to everyone by now that Medea Benjamin, Brian Becker, Mara VerHeyden-Hilliard, Carl Messineo, and all the rest of the coalition of traitors want the deaths of American soldiers, civilians, leaders, etc., including our president.
Don't sweat it. They just keep on digging their ditch a little deeper. Can't wait for one of them to deliver their funds in person and get their heads lobbed off for their efforts.
The precedent was set during Vietnam when Jane Fonda and John Kerry were allowed to get away with treason. Times change, and this precednet should be changed. Treason must be prosecuted.
This is treason.
I was going to ask the same thing. People get in legal trouble for contributing to a number of terrorist "charities"--so how come these folks get away with this?
I think it's time for them to be shut down like any other terrorist supporting organization or charity. The accounts need to be frozen immediately.
Aiding the enemy??? hmmmmmm...
I am thinking a call to the FBI tip number is in order...
Hell, I'm not the one who created that service...I see a crime in progress...I would call it in...
Seems reasonable...Call your Congress-critter Monday...Call the Fibbies today...
This is a job for Tony Soprano!
I also love how they/she makes the announcement from the "safety" of Amman, Jordan...
Does someone have a fox master list of emails? There was one posted a while back.
This needs to be followed up AND criminal charges pursued!
This is not freedom of speech this is aid and comfort to the enemy of a direct nature.
Sure, she gives "medicine" to the other side; a commodity that can be very easily traded for weapons, ammunition, explosives, and other hardware to murder more US Coalition soldiers.
One word... traitors.
This looks like a clear case to be prosecuted.
To buy them medicine is to free up their money so they can buy more ammunition.
It is treason.
"Aid and comfort."
To this day, I have never understood why Nixon's Justice Dept never charged Kerry, Fonda and Clark with treason.
Those folks are disgusting.
'Best Wishes', 'Good Viewing' and 'Eagles UP' at the Inauguration! Unfortunately, I won't be able to join the Washington Chapter of FR like I did for the Reagan Funeral; I have a previous commitment overseas on that date.
Yet they will not be held accountable.
Find your local chapter...
Got mine in Houston all lined up...
About time to rain on someone's parade I suppose...
If her nostrils would close just a little bit more. . .
My two cents.
United States. Resolution 1368:
Calls on all States to work together urgently to bring to justice the perpetrators, organizers and sponsors of these terrorist attacks and stresses that those responsible for aiding, supporting, or harboring the perpetrators, organizers and sponsors of these acts will be held accountable.
Medea Benjamin and her Code Pink group are the freaky looking ones who protested the Dem Convention this past summer wearing pink statue of liberty outfits with pink tape over their mouths.
I'm not surprised to read this development at all.
What you wanna bet the other side, buys more bullets instead of medicine?
From the 2nd article:
The group recently sent 600,000 dollars worth of humanitarian aid to residents of the Iraqi town of Fallujah ...
This woman's actions disgust me!
Then Code Pink is a terrorist organization and should be treated as such.
This is a must read bump!
From the U.S. Constitution:
Article III Section 3.
Treason against the United States, shall consist only of levying war against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. [snip]
If convicted of Treason, the sentence proscribed is death.
If Benjamin is quoted accurately, then I 'm the second witness that's required.
http://www.globalexchange.org/ Also aiding the enemy.
Unfortunately calling the FBI would be a complete and total waste of time.
Its not only treason. It seems to me this is a clear violation of the Neutrality Act.
I certainly wish someone would get the initiative to clean out these treason mongering rats nests and make them comply with the laws of our country.
What a bunch of stingy liberals.
We FReeped Media Benjamin in Greeley Colorado last September. Next time we will not be as polite (as if we were last time).
TREASON!! It is pure TREASON!
The University of Northern Colorado should hang it's head in shame for allowing this traitor to put foot on campus.
Ping and Bump
If Saddam had wanted his troops to have medicine he would have planted it with all those weapons he buried all over the country.
That's right, I remember that. Unless I'm still half-asleep, didn't they get charged too (not just removed)?
This bunch are Hillry's gal pals, and Hillry has not changed her spots.
