Code Pink’s Ties To Insurgency AND our Own Government (Update)
It’s all CJ’s fault that I can’t stand Code Pink. I didn’t really even know about the group until he told me. However, I’ve been mesmerized by their stupidity ever since.
Most of you know about the recent “hunger strike” that Code Pink has been suffering through. I say it that way because it’s not really a hunger strike. They eat fruits and drink vegetable and fruit juices on this “strike”. Maybe their friends Saddam Hussein and the guys at Guantanamo weren’t clear when they explained the rules.
Supposedly, five Iraqi delegates heard about their hunger strike and invited them to Jordan to discuss topics related to the US presence in Iraq. The Code Pink delegation consisted of former Democratic Senator Tom Hayden (also an advisor to the Out of Iraq Caucus), retired Colonel Ann Wright (who has been actively encouraging our soldiers to go AWOL and other overtly subversive activities), Iraq war veteran Geoffrey Millard (a former Army “soldier” who still wears his desert camouflage uniform top with the US flag sewn on UPSIDE DOWN at events), Medea Benjamin and other members of Code Pink.
As a matter of fact, it was mainly Code Pink that consisted of this delegation. So, if you’re nosy like me, you’ve probably tried to figure out who these five (“leading members” according to the Code Pink website) Iraqi Parliament members are. Even after an exhaustive Google search on the topic, their identities remain anonymous. Until now…
I’ve learned who at least two of these five “delegates” are. The first is Iraqi Front for National Dialogue leader Saleh Al-Mutlaq. Dr. Mutlaq is a supporter and ally of Muqtada al Sadr and the Mahdi Militia. He was also a large part of the force trying to “prevent the inclusion of Shi’ite autonomous Regions in the creation of an Iraqi constitution.” (Wikipedia.com, 1 Sep 2006 search) He was trying to do the very thing that those in attendance are supposedly against – fairness and equity.
The other Iraqi delegate was a man named Dr. Ahmad al Kubaisi from the Association of Muslim Scholars. The AMS is very close to the Arab Sunni insurgency. They publicly support armed resistance against U.S. soldiers and Iraq’s new army and police force, and support beheadings, taking hostages and the killing of civilians (sometimes publicly). Their rise to prominence came after the crisis in Fallujah. The Association helped to broker the cease fire and an exchange of prisoners for money. Yup, for money. “He regards resistance as a personal duty (fard â€˜ayn) that is ignored at the risk of denying tawhid, the unity of God.” (Middle East Report #237) He is quoted as saying that taking up arms is even more important to a Muslim than fasting and prayer.
These are the types of people by whom our Congressmen are being advised. Remember that Hayden is a congressional advisor and meets with these people. One could easily draw a line from the Out of Iraq Caucus to the Islamic extremists in Iraq as one in the same. The co-founders of the Out of Iraq Caucus are Rep. Maxine Waters [D-CA], Chair, Rep. Lynn Woolsey [D-CA], Rep. John Conyers [D-MI], Rep. Charlie Rangel [D-NY], Rep. Barbara Lee [D-CA], Rep. Jan Schakowsky [D-IL], and Rep. William Delahunt [D-MA]. You can find all other members of the caucus HERE. The caucus has also joined forces with the “Troops Home Fast” organization, which was formed by Code Pink. You see where this is going. It’s one big circle. If your representative happens to be on this list, I suggest you send them an email or give them a telephone call.
(Update) Here are the names of the other Iraqis who met with the delegation and their identities. Saad Al-Janabi is an EXILE who FLED Iraq and ended up in California; closely tied to Schwartzenegger (or so he says). And he’s able to go BACK to Iraq for one reason and one reason only: The United States Military that he is working to evict!! Fattah Al-Shiekh is another of Al-Sadr’s Mahdi Militia lackies and supporters. He’s also editor in chief of the anti-US Iraqi newspaper Ishraqat Al-Sadr. I have no idea who Nada Muhammad is, another Iraqi present.
Ali al-Tamimi…wow, where do I start. He was convicted of inciting terrorism in connection with the Virginia Jihad Network.
The other two, Abd Al-Amir Alwan and Majed Al-Samerraie are easy Googles. So, my title stands and only serves to further what I was saying by providing more evidence that these people are conspiring with the enemy.
