There goes the neighborhood…anti-War activist Cindy Sheehan has purchased five acres of property in Crawford, Texas, from which she vows to continue her harassment of President George Bush over his prosecution of the war in Iraq. Sheehan is the mother of Casey Sheehan, who lost his life in Iraq in 2004, and she now heads a group known as Gold Star Families for Peace.
Can’t help but think that Mrs. Sheehan’s antics have negated any positive traction or credibility she could have ever achieved in promoting her cause. She now comes off as a pathetically shrill voice most thinking Americans discount in the ongoing debate over the War…ironically, exercising the freedom to do so that other soldiers, like her son, gave their lives to provide.
I am sad for her loss, but sadder still for the comfort she's now giving the enemy.
