Boxer, Waxman Under Fire for Approving Radical Mission Behind Enemy Lines
The Daily Caller ^ | Wednesday, October 13, 2010 | Chris Garcia

Posted on 10/13/2010 3:15:50 PM PDT by kristinn

Two top California legislators are coming under fire after new evidence has emerged that they helped a group of radical antiwar activists cross the Iraqi-Jordanian border in order to deliver aid to families of enemy insurgents in the war-ridden Iraqi city of Fallujah. In December 2004, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D) and Rep. Henry Waxman (D) each sent letters of diplomatic courtesy to the U.S. Embassy in Amman, Jordan, requesting assistance for members of the radical group Global Exchange and the antiwar group Palisadians for Peace.

The letters, according to a January 4, 2005 article written by Islam Online correspondent Adam Wild Aba, were needed in order to successfully deliver supplies to the Iraqi people. The Pentagon had previously denied the groups access to the embattled region, citing security concerns. Waxman’s letter to Consul General Daniel Goodspeed, dated December 14, 2004, requested assistance on behalf of Palisadians for Peace and Global Exchange as they sought to set up a “peace camp” to benefit Iraqi families. Now, with no clear record of who specifically was given the more than $600,000 in cash and goods that the groups brought into the warzone, concerned families of soldiers killed while fighting in the War on Terror are beginning to ask questions.

Outrage was reignited after Lt. Col. Robert “Buzz” Patterson (USAF-Ret.) described in detail in his latest book, Conduct Unbecoming, the connection between the radical antiwar group Code Pink and the groups for which Boxer and Waxman issued letters of support. The blockbuster from the New York Times bestselling author, released just prior to the ninth anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks, provides groundbreaking evidence of the anti-American military actions taken by Code Pink in their protests against the Iraq War.

Sounds like both should stand trial for Treason.

If true, sounds like Treason to me. The scary thing is that this goes on in Congress all the time... Just another sign of the times...

I am in a down mood. Polling indicates that none of this, nor anythingBoxer or Brown has done, matters... The only thing that could apparently derail either Boxer or Brown would maybe be to be found in bed with a live goat. And even that would increase the PETA turnout, and Islamist turnout... California voters are brain dead, and/or, lobotomized...

They are not antiwar if they are participating in the war. Why don’t we just call all of enemies “radical antiwar activists?”

Under fire? They should both be sitting in prison waiting for their treason trial to begin.

And anybody who votes for these traitors should be on trial with them!!!!!!!!!!!!

This needs to get to Levin and/or Beck. They are the most creatively Machiavellian on our side...

"Flirting? More like they’re going steady."

I've seen dogs copulate with less passion than the way these two show their love of squishy warm pacifist ideology.

“California voters are brain dead, and/or, lobotomized...”

I have a close friend who lives in Poway, CA, who is passionately conservative, but I keep concluding the same thing that you do. It’s as though Californians, a majority at least, are totally fed up with freedom and prosperity and long for an impoverished, third-world dictatorship. They must think Haiti is some kind of heaven on earth.

Keep your chin up... Remember, this year, so many more Republican, Independents, and Tea Party folks are going to turn out that the polls probably will be wrong.

It will be change this year or else!

“Or else” may yet be coming.
