Just another reminder that Obama really has no opposition to the left. Their only disagreement is the speed at which terrorists are enabled and national security is dismantled.

Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson met with leaders of the terrorist support group Code Pink at Homeland Security headquarters in Washington, D.C. on Monday.

Code Pink’s allies since the group’s founding in 2002 have included Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, the Taliban, al Qaeda (various branches) and members of the Weather Underground. Code Pink has also allied itself with the terrorist governments of Saddam Hussein, Fidel Castro and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Code Pink is also allied with the Obama administration. Members of Code Pink’s leadership have fundraised and campaigned for Obama’s elections. They have also acted as a messenger between terrorists and President Barack Obama.

Sec. Johnson, like Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans, was a fundraising bundler for Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.

Just this month Code Pink was blocked from aiding Hamas-controlled Gaza. Benjamin and dozens of international leftist and Islamist agitators were deported from Cairo by the Egyptian government as they tried to use Egypt as a means to enter Gaza.

Last summer Code Pink was in Yemen fundraising for family members of al Qaeda and detainees held by the U.S. at Guantanamo Bay.

In late 2004 Code Pink delivered $600,000 in cash and aid to what Benjamin called the families of “the other side” in Fallujah, Iraq as U.S. Marines, British and free Iraqi forces fought to liberate the city from al Qaeda.

Code Pink reported about the meeting with Sec. Johnson on their website blog the Pink Tank, saying the meeting lasted forty minutes.

Benjamin and McCracken write that the group was not searched in any manner upon entering Homeland Security headquarters: “To our amazement, while we had to show our IDs, no one ever searched us. No metal detectors, no looking through our bags—nothing.”

Searches are for Americans, not for the privileged elites of the left whose policies inflict them on others.

    “On October 9th, a dozen of them held a symbolic twelve hour fast outside the Islamabad Press Club, holding “pictures of the more than 160 Pakistani children who have been killed by American drones.”

    The same day, in nearby Swat, another Pakistani child, 14 year old Malala Yousafzai, was gunned down by the Pakistani Taliban because she was an advocate of education for girls. They stopped her school bus, asked for her by name, and shot her twice in the head, wounding two other students in the process

    No turn of events could more forcefully illustrate the idiocy of the US peace movement’s one-sided approach to solidarity. ”

      They are in solidarity with terrorists.

        Medusa Benjamin and Code Stink were in Pakistan to protest the drone campaign. That is not quite the same as supporting the Taliban.

        Yet, operationally it equates to the same thing. I have yet to see any army with a large number of troops fighting for a protracted period of time, where subterfuge is used, fight a perfect war, where there is no collateral damage.

        Code Pink is asking for this very thing and yet they could not accomplish it themselves nor do any better.

        I have never seen a world where soft power is used time and time again and worked. Code Pink is asking for this more so that war be fought perfectly (with 0 collateral damage).

        If this was the 1940s they would be in prison for treason.

        I totally & utterly despise terrorists & all terrorist affiliations such as all you listed & I’m a very fond & active supporter of Code Pink’s dedication to peace keeping, women’s rights in the middle east/SEAsia, & supporting outlet for the collective voice of victims of war, occupation & violence including that of our military veterans. Shame on your publicized ignorance, Sir.

    Code Pink, “an ineffective, self-indulgent, obnoxious and tone-deaf organization.” – The Daily Kos founder

    You think Obama is bad?

    Think of the Rules of Engagement (ROE) if Medea .Bemjamin … no Strike that ….Medusa Benjamin was in charge.

    She wanted all American troops to leave Afghanistan. O’Reilly told her the Taliban would take over. She tacitly agreed that they would. So she had a great epiphany and said they should stay there as peacekeepers. Can you imagine the ROE!

      The ROE are already suicidal, we should have shot Bemjamin on the spot in Iraq or dropped a Hellfire missile on her vehicle in Pakiland, maybe next time.

      • A Z

        I agree they are suicidal. It does not mean that an unelected politician like Medusa Benjamin cannot make them worse.

    Homeland Security Secretary Je-had Johnson is simply adding another color to Obama’s rainbow.

    Code Pink, Black Liberation Theology, Green subversion, Blue states, Red propaganda, and White guilt.

    OK…so white isn’t a color but it’s the prism of reality through which they invoke their nasty new shade of gray.

    And gray of course as any artist will tell you is the tragic mixing of all the colors together.

    Much different than red, white, and blue.

    Who is Jeh Johnson? yea, I know he is now the head of DHS, but who is he? When Janet Napolatano left DHS her position went unfilled for months. I kind of kept an eye on it because I was curious as to which Islamophile would step in to fill the position. Then along comes this Johnson guy. Never heard of him, no curiosity from the media or anyone else. OK, he was a bundler for Obama, but what other qualifications does he have? My guess is that he is just a seat warmer as was Janet N. Obama doesn’t want anyone in that position who might actually take homeland security seriously and who has a clear understanding about Islamic jihad.

    Thrown out of Egypt but feted in America. Secession anyone?

  • Larry Price

    every muslim apologist is GUILTY of criminal conspiracy before , during and after the fact….. we need a prosecutor to end this terrorist support

  • j Ray

    So the Sec of Homeland Security consorts with traitors. Proof that Obama and his entire regime re traitors.

  • Teresa Morrisroe

    This article in its entirety is grotesquely false. I am an active Code Pink volunteer for the past two years & I, along with a majority of Code Pink members including Ms. Alli McCracken & cofounder Medea Benjamin, actively protest Obama’s actions worldwide & his actions here at home throughout his entire presidency. Code Pink’s dedication to bridge the gap between truth & falsities as well as misinformation & understanding is a far cry from terrorist support. Mr. Greenfield’s op-ed above is definitely that: opinion with an added dash of ignorant bigotry.
