News Advisory:

Mothers to invite President Bush to pray for the troops with them at camp this Friday.

On Monday, the moms who are camping outside of President Bush's Crawford ranch demanding answers to why their sons died in Iraq, and the Iraq war veterans who've joined them, will announce their plan to keep the pressure on President Bush to meet with them.

At the event, Cindy Sheehan and members of other military families will invite President Bush to join them in prayer at what's been dubbed "Arlington Crawford," a patch of grass outside his ranch with white crosses representing the soldiers who’ve lost their lives in Iraq.

Mothers are scheduled to take part in candlelight vigils across the country beginning Wednesday night. These mothers are supporting the Crawford moms in their demand for a meeting with the president to answer questions as why their sons were killed.

The vigils are being organized by a coalition of groups including MoveOn.org Political Action, TrueMajority and Democracy For America.

WHEN: 10:30 a.m. CDT

WHERE: Camp Casey

8/15/05 WE are no longer isolated and alone trying to deal with the
criminal regime in the whitehouse. bushchenyroverice are criminals and chickenhawks. They have had the upper hand playing the 911-patriot-national security cards. They were very overpowering with the complicity of the coporate media and corporate congress. Now we have each other and we cannot let go of this unity. This is our chance to take back our country. God bless Cindy and the Camp Casey Patriots. g

Is there not a chance that this could backfire?

Suppose Bush does attend some part of the prayer meeting. He might then put forward the argument that Cindy Sheehan's request for an encounter has been met and that any further demands are unreasonable. A lot of people might think that's a reasonable position for him to take.

Cindy Sheehan speaks the truth from her heart. This is her power and our strength. Bush cant handle the truth. They thrive on lies, secret govt, fear, slander,and intimidation. Cindy is not afaid.Many democratic politicians are terrified of bushs slander machine and being called antipatriotic (big lie) Its an extremely powerful psychological tool being used against our common sense, our ethics, our decency. Most people who know what these people are capable of are afraid (rightly so) Cindy is not intimidated by bush. This is the gift we have been given in this absolutely critical time in our history. Our democracy is being destroyed by this immoral, illegal wealth/power/corporatepolitico hijacking.

Cindy speaks for millions of us who were devastated ,demoralized disempowered and/or terrorized by the bushregimes manipulation of fear, 911,patriotism, and national security. They used these issues to hijack the minds of a sufficient number of citizens to take over our govt. Its a consolidation of wealth and power.Plain and simple
Its corruption. Most of the world knows this. Thats why they dont support the war. Its only americans who dont know what their govt is doing. We have been lied to in the most systematic organized highly financed studied psychological propagandistic warfare ever waged against a population. It has worked so far; until now.
bush is incapable of thinking on his feet; or of lying as well as his goebbelisitc henchman. This is why he is not allowed to speak with people who disagree with him. Audio vidio of bush speaking with Cindy would shock his supporters, Republicans? Hell it would shock all of us. This is why he is hidden away. Have you ever seen him speaking off the record or speak in anything but a staged event?

He is a bubble boy. He is a stepford president. Everything is orchestrated and scripted. Hes an actor who sticks to talking points he has been programmed to repeat. A conversation with Cindy would probaby get him to change his own mind. Whats left of it. bushes handlers would not ever allow him to actually speak in front of cameras with anyone who disagress with him. He would get so confused so fast Americans would realize how much danger we are in to have this fellow "in charge" of our country. In the meantime our brave military are being killed or wounded daily. Many civilians including women and children likewise are dying.Jesus i hope its not too late. citz.g

I have no quarrel with the objectives, nor with your comments. My only question was/is about the wisdom of this particular tactic in relation to the overall strategy.
