Sheehan Squandering Sympathy, Family Angered

Casey Sheehan was an Army Specialist who served his Nation honorably until he fell in April 2004. Like millions of his equally brave countrymen over the last 229 years, he had volunteered to serve his country and paid the ultimate price. His life, and death, should be honored by all Americans (oh, if that were the case!).

Cindy Sheehan, Casey's grieving Mother, gained an audience with President Bush later last year with other grieving families. Although there is much speculation about how her encounter with the President went, it is clear that she was still not satisfied and had taken a position against the war in Iraq which had claimed her brave boy.

**So far, this is just another tragic story of a Mother - grieving for her son and wanting some answers. We should (and most of us do) feel great sympathy for this poor woman. She represents something that any patriotic American can feel real empathy for.

Enter the ACTIVISTS. Cindy Sheehan, although still a Mom who wants answers, has become a puppet to Liberal Hate-Groups, such as MoveOn.org and others....including a featured Blogspot on the website of that GREAT AMERICAN (Traitor and Coward), Michael Moore. And they are hurting our soldiers, marines and sailors...the men and women left over there, fighting for what Casey was fighting for. When I see her on camera, I am reminded of the Muslim women who are paid to publicly wail in front of the western cameramen. Although I don't doubt her grief, it all seems rather staged...hey, she even has a publicist.

Hundreds of Bush Supporters have gathered to call these people out. While most of them feel for Ms. Sheehan as a bereaved Mother, they also recognize that she has become the somewhat unwitting pawn of extreme leftists - a woman blinded by her grief to even her own family.

Speaking of HER FAMILY, here is what THEY had to say in a letter for Matt Drudge to present to the public:

"The Sheehan Family lost our beloved Casey in the Iraq War and we have been silently, respectfully grieving. We do not agree with the political motivations and publicity tactics of Cindy Sheehan. She now appears to be promoting her own personal agenda and notoriety at the the expense of her son's good name and reputation. The rest of the Sheehan Family supports the troops, our country, and our President, silently, with prayer and respect."

This from FrontPageMagazine.com:
"...as a mechanic in the 1st battalion, 82nd Field Artillery Regiment, Casey did not have to go into the battle that claimed his life. When some of his fellow soldiers encountered resistance, he and others in his unit chose to go into combat to save his friends."

"Cindy Sheehan herself recounted it this way: "[T]he sergeant said, "Sheehan, you don't have to go," because my son was a mechanic. And Casey said, "Where my chief goes, I go."""

Sheehan wants to ask the President "Why did you kill my son?" I have a better question for Her... "Why are YOU killing more of our young men and women by emboldening the Enemy?" Aljazeera is already eating this stuff up, and THAT is where I draw the line on my sympathy.
