    Sheehan Resumes Protest
    Associated Press | August 07, 2006
    CRAWFORD, Texas - A year after her first war protest in President Bush's adopted hometown attracted thousands and reinvigorated the nation's peace movement, Cindy Sheehan resumed her vigil Sunday.

    Under the blazing Texas sun, Sheehan and more than 50 demonstrators again marched a mile and a half toward Bush's ranch, stopping at a roadblock. As Secret Service agents stood silently, Sheehan held up her California driver's license and said she wanted to meet with the president.

    "It doesn't say my new address, but I do live here now," said Sheehan, who lives in Berkeley, Calif., and recently bought land in Crawford for war protests. "My name is Cindy and Bush killed my son."

    The group then chanted, "This is what democracy looks like! This is what democracy sounds like!" and a few people sang "This Land Is Your Land" while standing near the roadblock before returning to the protest site.

    White House spokesman Tony Snow has said that neither Bush nor his staff plan to meet with Sheehan.

    "I would advise her to bring water, Gatorade or both," Snow said when asked about Sheehan during a press briefing Friday. "Honestly, when you're talking about the kind of issues that we're talking about, Cindy Sheehan hasn't risen to the level of staff meetings at this point."

    Earlier Sunday, about 50 protesters attended an interfaith service Sunday on the 5 acres that Gold Star Families for Peace recently bought with insurance money Sheehan received after her oldest son, Casey, died in Iraq in 2004.

    The vacant land, with a field and tree groves, is near downtown, about seven miles from the ranch. Sheehan, who plans to donate the land for a park after the war is over, said she plans to register to vote and get a driver's license in Texas.

    As Sheehan spoke, saying "our hearts are connected," regardless of people's races, countries or religions, a man disrupted the service with loud questions and shouts of, "This is unpatriotic!" before the protesters asked him to leave.

    William McGlothlin of Marked Tree, Ark., said he was visiting his son in College Station and decided to try to see Bush's ranch, then stopped by the protesters' site because he had heard about them and was angry.

    "I believe Bush is doing what he should be doing," McGlothlin said. "Freedom of speech is good until it gets out of whack."

    Several Bush supporters also set up a tent Sunday in downtown Crawford, which they have done every time Sheehan has returned.

    Sheehan said she expected more war opponents to arrive throughout the month. Their protest initially was to start Aug. 16, after the Veterans for Peace convention in Seattle, but she moved it up last week after learning that Bush would be in Crawford for only 10 days at the beginning of August.

    A year ago, Sheehan and a few dozen anti-war demonstrators arrived in Crawford from the Veterans for Peace convention in Dallas and marched toward Bush's ranch, demanding to talk to the president about the war.

    Two of Bush's top aides met with Sheehan, but she said she wouldn't leave until Bush himself talked to her, so she set up camp in ditches off a road a couple of miles from the ranch.

    As her 26-day vigil swelled to several thousand people on weekends - and as locals complained of the noise, traffic and odor from portable toilets - a sympathetic landowner allowed the group to use his 1-acre lot about a mile from the ranch.

    Last fall, county commissioners banned roadside camping and parking.

    Group Plans to Confront Sheehan

    Group Plans to Confront Sheehan
    Military.com | August 04, 2006

    A grassroots pro-military group is organizing a counter to the efforts of Cindy Sheehan, the polarizing icon of the anti-war movement whose son, Casey, was killed in Iraq. The group, "American Pride," is led by Leonard Wahl, who also lost a son in the war. American Pride is petitioning people to come to Crawford, Texas between August 14 and 22 -- part of a period when Sheehan and her followers are expected to launch "Camp Casey III." Crawford, the home of President Bush's ranch, was the site of a stalemate of sorts last August when Sheehan declared she wasn't leaving until the president met with her in person. President Bush never met her and ultimately she moved on.

    The story didn't end there, however, as Sheehan took steps to remain in the limelight. Most recently she purchased land in Crawford upon which she intends to stage her "Camp Casey III" event. Sheehan's "Crawford Peace House" website indicates the dates for the event are August 6 to September 3. The site is requesting volunteers, in-kind donations, and financial contributions to make the protest "a safe, comfortable and effective action."

    American Pride hopes to mute Sheehan's message. "We are urging every veteran to join the fallen families to support our troops," Wahl wrote in an email to Military.com. "This is our way to confront Cindy Sheehan. Soldiers did not pick this war. We cannot allow America to fail its soldiers as it did in Vietnam."

    Mr. Wahl can be reached at Leonard_wahl@gmail.com.

    I like how Tony Snow answered those questions. I'm glad he's there now to tactfully tell her to go to hell. I think she's deranged.

    She's just a media Whore. In 5 years, people will say, "Cindy who? isn't she that piece of trash that used her son's death to get in the news?"
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    Emphasis on the whore part. She is basically pimping out the dignity and memory and sacrifice of her dead son for fame.
