Kerry provides letter supporting 'Gaza Freedom March' on Senate stationerySenator John F. Kerry, (D - People's Republic of Massachusetts), the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, provided a letter of support on Senate stationery to Code Pink 'activists' who participated in the 'Gaza Freedom March.'
In the letter, Kerry wrote that his staff met with the Massachusetts delegation before they left, and his staff would be briefed about the trip upon their return.Not only do the Democrats not treat terrorists as combatants - they support them (what else do you think Code Pink was doing by going to Gaza?).
Code Pink co-founders Jodie Evans and Medea Benjamin used Kerry’s letter at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, Egypt to pressure the Egyptian government to allow 1300 leftists passage into Gaza from Egypt. The leftists gathered in Cairo from around the world to mark the one-year anniversary of Israel’s defense against Hamas’ rocket and mortar attacks.
Images of the letters from Kerry and [Representative Andre] Carson [(D-Indiana) were posted by the publisher of The Electronic Intifada, Ali Abunimah, on his blog at Posterous.com. [Abunimah is a close friend and early supporter of Barak Hussein Obama. CiJ].
Abunimah wrote that he, Benjamin and Kit Kettridge met for over an hour with “three officials, including Gina Cabrera, head of US citizen services, and Gregory D. LoGerfo, First Secretary in the Office of Economic and Political Affairs. The third official, whose name I did not note, identified himself as a ‘regional security’ official.”
Benjamin and Kettridge also met with “the embassy’s Deputy Director Matthew Tuellar, in command while Ambassador Scobey was on leave,” according to Abunimah.
(Margaret Scobey is a career Foreign Service officer who was appointed ambassador to Egypt by President George W. Bush in 2008.)
The Christian Science Monitor mentioned Kerry’s letter in a report from Cairo, but failed to question why the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee was supporting the anti-Israel, pro-Hamas Gaza Freedom March.
The letter was written on letterhead from Kerry’s Boston office. The name and phone number of staffer Christopher Wyman was included as a point of contact.
Read the whole thing. And take a shower afterward. You'll need it. This guy was almost President of the United States. What could go wrong?
