Rep. Waxman Spokesman: 'We Do Not Know' If We Aided Fallujah Terrorists with Code Pink Letter

A concerned Blue Star Mother was told by a spokeswoman for Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) that Waxman “did not intend to assist insurgents” in Iraq when he provided a diplomatic letter in December 2004 to Code Pink’s parent organization Global Exchange. However, Waxman apparently made no effort to ensure the reported $100,000 in cash and $500,000 in humanitarian aid was not delivered to terrorists, even after Code Pink and Global Exchange co-founder Medea Benjamin bragged at the time that the aid was intended for families of the “other side” in Fallujah. (Top Democrat fundraiser and Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans was also involved in giving aid to the “other side”.)
The admission came in an e-mail colloquy between Beverly Perlson and Waxman staffer Lisa Pinto in 2007. Perlson was seeking a copy of Waxman’s letter, which Pinto provided.
Perlson is the mother of a soldier who has served four tours of duty in the war on terror. She is founder of the pro-troops group The Band of Mothers.
