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.

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?”

“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.

That sounds like a violation of US law, and maybe grounds for treason trials and their executions. Thanks kristinn.

Don't know how many registered voters there are in CA (and anybody can register), but with a population of 35,000,000 it's easy for a lot of conservatives to be outnumbered.

The only way the DNC Media will get dragged into this story is if it gets into the bloodstream of the online media and talk radio - Malkin, Coulter and Rush would be a great start. That's how the Swift Vet story happened - the old media ignored the fire until Kerry socks were burning.

This should be one of the first congressional investigations/hearings held by the newly won Republican House of Representatives.

There was a book years ago entitled “None Dare Call It Treason”.

Well, I, for one, call this TREASON! and treason should be punished.

PS: My son was one of the first American soldiers to go into Iraq on 3/20/03 to mark paths for the Abrams tanks who were crossing the border from Kuwait.

My dog was in the fight very early on. His company won a Presidential Unit Citation.

Payback time for traitors!

Eventually the state's IQ will go up when one of the Asian powers gets around to nuking the big West Coast conurbations that harbor all the perverse, Left-wing votes.

Just don't live in one, or downwind of one.

Olympic Peninsula, Mendocino County, places like that sound OK.
