Cindy Sheehan & Camp Casey in Crawford TX
All links courtesy of Daily Kos: Sheehan's Day 3 diary is here (all major network interviews bailed on her w/out explanation), as well as her latest update (she was on Greta van Susteren, Bill O'Reilly claims that she has been bought out by "The Arab Anti-Discrimination League", and he told his viewers that she is a tool for the liberals/ a tool for the anti-war movement. No Mr. O' LIElly, we all know who the REAL TOOL is. Rep John Conyers (who sat w/ Cindy at the Downing St Mins/Memos testimony) has written a letter to Bush (signed by about 18 other Congress members) to request that he meet with her. A list of ways that we can help her can be found here, but sadly, I cannot provide the direct link to her petition (that my hubby & I happily signed today) as it is currently down, but it is still on the list and will be back up I'm sure. Please check out Maureen Dowd's op/ed on Cindy: "There's an angry mother of a dead soldier camping outside his Crawford ranch, demanding to see a president who prefers his sympathy to be carefully choreographed." And RAWstory has the news that military families are going to TX to lend Cindy their support! Thank you Cindy for fighting the good fight. As a mom, I cannot even comprehend the profound hole her heart has. I pray that if patriotic Americans like her keep demanding accountability from our warmongering mis-leaders, then I will NEVER EVER have to lose a loved one to an immoral war waged on lies.
