While others in Washington blanch at admitting that the Iraq War was a colossal blunder, Cindy Sheehan traveled to Crawford, Texas to tell George W. Bush that it was time to admit the error and end the bloodshed.
Sheehan knows the personal cost of the war, in a way George W. Bush has never known. Cindy's son was killed in action in Iraq last year. Everybody grieves in their own way, but Sheehan didn't want other parents to feel her pain of loss.
So she helped start "Gold Star Families for Peace," and she advocated loudly and visibly for accountability in the war on terror -- and an end to a misguided mission. Cindy says she knows from her travels that "people are fed up with this war and want to do something to stop it."
The Republicans will let young men and women die to expand empire and save face -- and many Democrats in Washington are too timid to declare the Neo-con fantasy a failed war on terrorism. But Cindy Sheehan isn't about to let the truth get run out of America by double-talking con artists who think that they are masters of the universe.
Cindy Sheehan merits this week's BuzzFlash "Wings of Justice Award" because she has the courage to ask the President of the United States, "How do you ask a soldier to be the last person to die for a lie?"
