Code Pink Publicly Praises President George W. Bush With Afghanistan Visit
Wednesday, September 30, 2009 | Kristinn, Photos by Code Pink

Posted on 09/30/2009 8:19:19 AM PDT by kristinn

Okay, Code Pink did not intentionally praise former President George W. Bush, but that is the clear result of the photographs the group has posted of their first days on their week-long trip to Afghanistan that began this week.

Before President Bush ordered the liberation of Afghanistan in the fall of 2001, the Taliban controlled the lives of men and women--with an exceptionally cruel domination of women. Thanks to President Bush and America's armed forces, intelligence operatives and foreign service officers, Afghan women are not forced to wear burkas and girls can go to school:


Code Pink's caption: These fabulous women were behind Chadore's for 5 years and now work at the Afghan insurance company with Asad Afghanistan, September 2009


Code Pink's caption: Afghanistan 2009


Code Pink's caption: The classroom at the school for the street worker children Afghanistan, September 2009


No burka's here. Thanks, President Bush!


No burkas here, either. We love President Bush!!!

Unfortunately for the women of Afghanistan, Code Pink is in bed with al Qaeda, the Taliban and Barack Obama. The purpose of their trip is to undermine support for the war on terror.

Sorry, Afghan girls and women. You are just props for Code Pink.

More photos here.

First person account of trip by a fellow traveler here.

Stand with the D.C. Chapter of FreeRepublic.com at the White House Monday morning, October 5, as we support our troops in Afghanistan and counter Code Pink and the usual gang of America hating leftists (inside and outside the White House.) Details here.

I’m sure there’s a joke to be made about American liberal women and the need for burkas . . .

A big BUMP for George W. Bush's courage!

(Laura has done much for Afghan women as well. She seeks no fame and gets no credit, but at some point in the future the Lord will say to both of them, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant.")

Code Pink are a bunch of lousy Communist thug shrews.

They don’t speak politics. They speak rhetoric.

They are unpatriotic and gave support to our enemy in a time of war.

They are as rotten as the US Stalinists who opposed going to war against Hitler back in the late 1930s.

Bush is safely out of office now so they can praise him. Why didn’t they do this when he was in office. Are they actually trying to now raise support for the war effort in Afganistan because their guy (Obama) is now in charge? Call me cynical, but that’s my take.

NO! This picture says it all...taken in Afghanistan 9-28-09

Here we go ...

Obama: Afghanistan not 'American battle' but NATO mission
"We are working actively and diligently to consult with NATO at every step of the way," Obama said.
NATO Secretary-General Rasmussen put on a united front with Obama, arguing that "our operation in Afghanistan is not America's responsibility or burden alone, it is and it will remain a team effort." "I agree with President Obama in his approach: strategy first, then resources,"

He has been in office 8 months now. WHEN will he find the time to develop a strategy?

Perhaps some time spent taking care of business, as opposed to gallivanting all over the world -- at taxpayer expense -- would allow for some strategic planning time. The war did not start yesterday. His strategy should have been worked out prior to the coronation.

For an incredible cinematic lesson on what Bush accomplished, rent “Osama” (nothing about bin Laden). It’s the first movie shot in Afghanistan and won Best Foreign Film Oscar. It’s devastating.

Good to see a thread showing besides keeping the enemy away from America, some of the results of the war
Afghan women are not forced to wear burkas and girls can go to school.

Though this is just part of why we are there, many on FR
are posting threads with the IslamOfascists rant, out of Afghanistan and Iraq, all the usual propaganda.

Having been on many counter demonstrations against the Code Pinkos,their Marxist - IslamOfascists talking points are no
different than the Third Party, Paulites on FR

She and her husband own a travel agency. Just a little bit of capitalism to help them on their mission.

Besides, she is a trust fund baby, just like Bill Ayers.

Right you are!

He doesn't spend anytime in the Oval Office. An office that he shouldn't have even seen in pictures.

Here is a suggestion: send him Monica Lewinsky to persuade him to do some "work" in the oval office - that may "rub-off and he may do the people's work by mistake.

Oh, wait.......... we don't want him to do the people's work because he'll do us in.

0dungo is pushing Americans to join his tribe, go ape that is. A very dangerous thing, I might add.

It very well may be. The pinkos have a few undergoing "operations" and it is at times difficult to tell which sex they most resemble.

I did a close up view and it did not look like Madge/Mitch, but Kristinn may be able to tell who it is.

This is already confirmed.

0b0z0 doesn't have ANY education records from kindergarten to college. We had better take him at his word. He doesn't have them because they don’t exist in a form that proves his brilliance.

We're told that 0b0z0's IQ is 1.2 trillion. I believe his IQ is negative
