Casey's Mom at the Bat

Steve Cobble: Huffington Post

Cindy Sheehan is a one-woman antiwar movement.

Cindy wants to ask George W. Bush exactly what was the "noble cause" that her son Casey died for.

She's camping in a ditch near George W. Bush's fake ranch--built as a stage set when Bush ran for President, so he could pretend to be a cowboy, instead of an oil man--because more Americans like cowboys...

Cindy wants to ask Bush about the Downing Street Memo. Even though the elite media never really put it on the front page, Cindy knows that it proves that Bush & Blair had decided to go to war long before they told the rest of us, that the reasons they gave out to the public were false.

And Cindy Sheehan, whose son died in Iraq, has the White House boys in a tizzy.

She's got the President hiding inside, afraid to come out alone and talk to the mother of a soldier. Just like he couldn't talk to the 9/11 Commission without the Vice-President. Just like he's never managed to get himself to the funerals of the 1,800 soldiers killed in Iraq.

He's got time for fundraisers, but not funerals.

Time for mountain biking, but not meeting with military moms.

Time for 5 weeks of vacation, but no time for truth.

He's a would-be Master of War, but he's hiding in his house.

Cindy Sheehan is speaking truth to power outside the ranch gates of the ultimate Fortunate Son.
I'm with Cindy. She's smart, she's tough, and she's brave.

And if you want to help, go to the new web site that David Swanson put up overnight:

It's a war based on lies, and Cindy Sheehan wants the truth.
