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:

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.
First pic, woman on the right..NO WAY she should hide that beautiful face behind a burka..IMHO, she’s freakin gorgeous..
I’m sure there’s a joke to be made about American liberal women and the need for burkas . . .
I was thinking the same thing.
(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.")
I shouldn’t say what I’m thinking but I don’t wish these pinkos well on their upcoming ‘tour’
Great pics, Kristinn... thanks! There’s Medea Benjamin traveling the world again. WHO pays her way so she can engage in all of this activism, whether overseas or in the US?
Liberals whine about equality, conservatives actually practise it and make it happen.
I hate to ask a serious question on a most unserious occasion, but how could they not get it? How could they possibly ignore it?
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.
Thank you. You’re right.
Medea Benjamin is one of the most loathsome people on the planet along with Castro, Michael Moore, Imanutjob, Chavez, Jon Francoise Carry, Al Bore and the Obammy’s
Simple: Leftism is the most hypocritically blind poltical philosophy the world has ever seen.
Thank you for speaking "truth to power"
