Unhinged Mom Changes Story

• Views: 2,285

The oh-so-principled “anti-war” movement is cynically using Cindy Sheehan, whose son Casey was killed in Iraq. But Sheehan, now camped out in Crawford demanding to see the President so she can call him a murderer while cameras roll, has changed her tune:

That story, by staff writer David Henson, was an account of Sheehan’s visit with the president in Seattle.

In Henson’s story, Sheehan spoke of how she and husband, Patrick, debated before the meeting whether to ask pointed questions about the war and whether to vent frustration over their son’s sacrifice. Ultimately, the Sheehans decided not to criticize Bush in the meeting.

Afterward, Cindy Sheehan told Henson of a new-found respect toward Bush.

“I now know he’s sincere about wanting freedom for the Iraqis,” she said in the story. “I know he’s sorry and feels some pain for our loss. And I know he’s a man of faith.”

Sheehan also said the trip to Seattle helped connect her family to others that had lost a son or daughter in Iraq. Sheehan said sharing their story with those families was rewarding, as was the time she got to spend with her own family.

“That was the gift the president gave us, the gift of happiness, of being together,” she said in the story.

Sheehan, by the way, is also an Israel-hater: What One Mom has to Say to Bush.

“And the other thing I want him to tell me is ‘just what was the noble cause Casey died for?’ Was it freedom and democracy? Bullsh*t! He died for oil. He died to make your friends richer. He died to expand American imperialism in the Middle East. We’re not freer here, thanks to your PATRIOT Act. Iraq is not free. You get America out of Iraq and Israel out of Palestine and you’ll stop the terrorism,” she exclaimed.
