Sheehan urges Napolitano to withdraw Guard troops


Associated Press

Cindy Sheehan delivered a letter to Gov. Janet Napolitano's office Monday urging her to request the withdrawal of Arizona National Guard troops from Iraq, the first of several such letters Sheehan plans to deliver to western governors.

Sheehan, who lost her son in Iraq, and her supporters also plan to contact the governors of California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana.

"Let's start bringing our troops home, let's start with the National Guard," Sheehan said at a news conference held at the Arizona Capitol to announce the letter campaign. "George Bush says bring it on, I say bring them home."

Sheehan has been the face of the anti-war movement since she camped out in front of the president's Crawford, Texas, ranch earlier this year and demanded a chance to speak with him.
