During the meetings with Congress members Sheehan asked the simple questions
she wanted to ask President Bush: What is the "noble cause " that brave
Americans like Casey Sheehan have died for? How many more lives are we as a
country willing to sacrifice in Iraq? How many are you personally willing to
sacrifice? What are you specifically doing to bring our sons and daughters home
from this needless war?

“In September alone 49 American troops and many more Iraqi civilians have
been killed in Iraq. Our Representatives and Senators must take responsibility
for this war, and take action to bring an end to it,
