Aid and Comfort -- How leading Democrats enabled the Iraqi insurgency in Fallujah
American Thinker ^ | Oct 15, 2010 | Scott Swett

Posted on 10/15/2010 1:20:07 PM PDT by Interesting Times

New information is emerging about efforts by major Democratic Party figures to undercut American war efforts in Iraq by providing aid to the insurgents.  Lt. Col. Buzz Patterson's article Treason in America details how a coalition of radical organizations, including US-based Code Pink, delivered some $600,000 in cash and supplies to insurgents and their families in Fallujah, just days after 51 American troops were killed there in some of the bloodiest action of the Iraq war.  An approving article published in Islam Online tipped off the connection between the anti-American Global Exchange coalition and the Democrats who made their venture possible...

Bush made mistakes during the Iraq War- He never suspended Habeas Corpus, he never imprisoned Congressmen and financiers who openly warred against our troops.

Abraham Lincoln did this, and he was considered America's greatest president.

Boxer was involved in this up to her eyeballs. Yet it matters not here is California. She still leads Fiorina, and no matter what one may think of Fiorina, she would NEVER be involved in nonsense like this. People here are brain dead.

Since we are talking some very real treason here it would seem to me to be quite natural for the new Republican controlled Senate to hold ethics hearings on these guys, convict them, and stash them in the Capitol basement pending trial at a later date (when we get a Republican President).

Thanks for this follow-up article.

I just now googled “code pink fallujah boxer”, and they show 18,300 references in the last three days.

It's a start. The story still hasn't been picked up by the big conservative blogs, the top talk radio shows, Fox News, or the Fiorina campaign, any or all of which would be nice.

Thanks for pinging I.T. I read all of this and just want to cry because I feel so helpless. The Gates of Hell have opened and we have so many treasonous Congressmen, groups and individuals running around tearing down everything we hold precious.

I’m sure many of you feel as helpless as I do. All we can do is pray that each of our votes will soon help to change this. THEY MUST!

Does any of the reports on this reveal who at the State Department cooperated in this treason; because letters from Waxman and Boxer or not, someone at State had to make it possible for the travel and the “contributions” to take place.

It's a good question, but I'm not certain how to find out. A FOIA request would be far too slow now.
