CRAWFORD, Texas - War protester Cindy Sheehan has purchased a 5-acre plot in Crawford with some of the insurance money she received after her son was killed in Iraq.Losing your son to an unnecessary war gives you a right to publicly criticize the president, but it does not give you a right to a face-to-face meeting with him. (Sheehan should be smart enough to know that even if such a meeting occurred, it would only be used by the White House as an opportunity to portray the prez as so compassionate that he's willing to meet with a hyper-critical mom).
The group she helps lead, Gold Star Families for Peace, says on its Web site that it will return next month to protest the war in Iraq in the small town near Waco where President Bush has a ranch. Like last year, Sheehan, whose son Casey was killed in Iraq in 2004, will again demand to meet with the president.
“We decided to buy property in Crawford to use until George’s resignation or impeachment, which we all hope is soon for the sake of the world,” Sheehan said in a newsletter set to be sent to supporters Thursday.
This is starting to reach the obsessive-obnoxious stage.
