Cindy Sheehan, who has camped out in Craford demanding to see President Bush because her son died in Iraq, already saw him in June 2004. At the time, Crawford said, “I now know he’s sincere about wanting freedom for the Iraqis. I know he’s sorry and feels some pain for our loss. And I know he’s a man of faith.”
Today, however, she says, “You tell me the truth. You tell me that my son died for oil. You tell me that my son died to make your friends rich. You tell me my son died to spread the cancer of Pax Americana, imperialism in the Middle East. You tell me that, you don’t tell me my son died for freedom and democracy.”
Someone needs to tell the poor woman to stop embarrassing herself and walking over her son’s grave. Grieving is one thing. Joining the Michael Moore crowd is simply sad.
