Drudge is Swift Boating Cindy Sheehan
Drudge the Hack is swift boating Cindy Sheehan w/ a 2004 article written by David Henson as Drudge carefully cherry picks her words w/out providing the entire article. Here is the article link. Notice that Cindy is absolutely crystal clear in this article (and in this 2nd Henson article about Casey receiving a posthumous degree from a local college) that she is not happy w/Bush's weak explanations for the reasons behind her son's sacrifice: (Article 1) :But as their meeting w/ the president approached, the family was faced with a dilemma as to what to say when faced with Casey's commander-in-chief. "We haven't been happy w/ the way the war has been handled," Cindy said. "The president has changed his reasons for being over there every time a reason is proven false or an objective reached." The 10 mins of face time with the president could have given the family a chance to vent their frustrations or ask Bush some of the difficult questions they have been asking themselves, such as whether Casey's sacrifice would make the world a safer place. But in the end, the family decided against such talk, deferring to how they believed Casey would have wanted them to act. (Article 2) :Cindy and Patrick admit, though, to being frustrated w/ the war and w/ President George W. Bush, as they said the war seems to lack a clear goal or end. "We support the troops 100 percent and the Army has been good to us," Cindy said. "But he (Bush) should have had a better plan before he sent our son over there to get killed. Casey is a hero because he saved his buddies, but did (his) sacrifice help the Iraqis' freedom?" Drudge- stop cherry picking this devastated mother's words and stop trying to put lipstick on a pig.
