|Henry Waxman & Barbara Boxer allegedly provided diplomatic|
letters to allow $600,000 in 'aid' to reach insurgents in Fallujah, Iraq
Garcia cited Robert "Buzz" Patterson's new book, 'Conduct Unbecoming' as the source of the dynamite allegations that Boxer and Waxman were central to ensuring that the anti-war activists would be able to complete their mission. In his book Patterson claims that the anti-war activists "delivered more than $600,000 in cash" to the insurgents in Fallujah in December 2004.
The delivery of aid and comfort by the US anti-war activists was hailed by Islam Online, who noted that "had it not been for the help of the two congressmen" the 'aid' would not "have been seen the light due to obstacles laid by the Pentagon."

Both Boxer and Waxman are campaigning to be re-elected in the November 2010 mid-term elections, and would probably prefer not to have to explain why they appear to have been central to assisting in the delivery of aid and comfort to the enemy. Thus far, however, neither Boxer nor Waxman have issued any statement denying the allegations in Patterson's book, which was released on September 6, 2010.
It is understood that copies of the damning letters have been obtained, however, the allegations in Patterson's book nevertheless appear to be corroborated by the statements of Islam Online. Those statements were made 5 years ago, and were equally not refuted by Boxer or Waxman.
It must be remembered that, in 2005, the focus of the democrat party was to cause the maximum embarrassment to the Bush Administration, and thus the actions of Boxer and Waxman would have been favorably received by partisans. The goal was to take back the White House, and it seems that even allowing the enemy to obtain aid and comfort was 'fair game.'
Is it coincidental, then, that the Islam Online article:
that hailed Boxer and Waxman as instrumental in thwarting Pentagon efforts to deny aid and comfort to the enemy in 2005, and that was still viewable online yesterday, was somehow unavailable today?

aid and comfort to insurgents in Fallujah, was "unavailable" today.)
