Cindy, Code Pink – $600K For Terrorists

It may or it may not surprise you to learn that Cindy Sheehan has no links to fundraisers for the victims of hurricane Katrina on her website.

She does, of course, find plenty of room for several appeals for money for her own cause, the Gold Star Families For Peace. Sheehan even (apparently falsely) claims GSFP to be a tax-exempt 501c3 charity.

But Mother Sheehan's heart has not always been so hard.

You will recall how our soldiers on the ground in Iraq got tired of being picked off by the terrorists holed up in holy Fullajah and finally cleaned them out last November. Within days, Cindy and her pals at Code Pink began to raise money for their "freedom-fighting" heroes.

Behold an example of one of al-Sheehan's countless appeals. This one is from the newsletter of the loathsome Iraqi "Resistance"-supporting Cambridge Solidarity with Iraq outfit:

Take Action :

Help Send Humanitarian Supplies to Iraq

Dear friend,

When the US bombed a hospital in Falluja and seized another, leveled virtually the entire city, killed hundreds of desperate civilians, refused to let humanitarian aid workers into the city, and left an estimated 50,000 civilians without water, electricity and food, we knew we had to do something – fast -because Falluja is just one terrifying example of the escalating devastation in Iraq.

We can't let this face of devastation be the only face that the Iraqi people, and the world community, see from the American people. We must show that there are kind, compassionate Americans who are appalled by this violence and want to help – not kill – the Iraqi people.

So we have put together a delegation of parents who lost loved ones in Iraq and on 9/11, as well as health care workers, to take a shipment of humanitarian aid to the people of Iraq. This delegation will take desperately needed medical supplies to the Iraqi/Jordanian border, where we will meet with Iraqi humanitarian aid organizations that will take the supplies to Falluja and other places in need.

We plan to leave for Jordan on December 27 and usher in the New Year with this gesture of solidarity BUT we need your help in raising $20,000 in the next two weeks to make this happen.

** These supplies will only get to those in need if each of us does our part **
