"It drew on quotes from a Sheehan interview published June 24, 2004, in The Reporter. Cindy Sheehan told reporter David Henson that she and husband debated before the meeting whether to ask pointed questions about the war and whether to vent their frustration over their son's sacrifice. Ultimately, they chose not to."
"Sheehan, in a press release distributed Monday by the Institute for Public Accuracy, explained she was 'still in shock' during her 2004 meeting with the president.
'We had decided not to criticize the president then because during that meeting he assured us, 'This is not political.' And I believed him,' Sheehan wrote. 'Then, during the Republican National Convention, he exploited those meetings to justify what he was doing. It's now clear to me that what I had feared is true: Bush lied us into war, and Casey, more than 1,800 other Americans and thousands and thousands of Iraqis are dead because of what he did.'"
The people in power in this country have built their power base on the appeal to phony phamily values among those with whom they share no real economic interests. There is no more direct attack on that base of their power than a movement of mothers and families united in real grief, in real anger, in real opposition to their anti-family anti-environmental anti-human policies.
