Get Cindy Sheehan on the t.v. again
to tell her story about how bushie "honored" her son. it is so revealing--she is on mike malloy's show tonight and explained that bush walked in the room asking "who are we honoring" and that he didn't even know her son's name, wouldn't let her family talk about their son, didn't want to see pictures of him, etc.

he behaved disgracefully and i wish she would get on the telly and let the "viewing" audience know--maybe a few papers too.

please use the email links at this site to send out of few requesting an interview with her and the story about bushie's lame attempt to honor her son two months after he was killed in iraq.

1. I just listened to that segment. Bush is a cold-hearted sociopath.
he expressed no thanks and no empathy for her son's sacrifice. It was truly disgusting...

4. this is the email i've been sending out to various
msm:

"REQUEST TO INTERVIEW CINDY SHEEHAN REGARDING HOW GEORGE BUSH "HONORED" HER SON

Tonight I heard Cindy Sheehan on Mike Malloy's show on Air America Radio. I was horrified at the story she told about George Bush and his attempt to "honor" her son, Casey, who was killed shortly after he was sent to Iraq two years ago.

In the interview she said he walked into the room and asked: "Who are we honoring?" He didn't even know her son's name; he was not interested in seeing pictures of him and wouldn't let the family talk about him. Bush also kept referring to Cindy as "mom".

If you would like to hear the interview you can download it from whiterosesociety.org and click on Mike Malloy. The date of the show is July 7, 2005. She came on about thirty minutes into the show.

I felt that this interview was extremely telling regarding his attitude toward this war and the people that are dying because of it, his insincerity and callousness including the dirty look he gave Cindy's daughter.

I would love to see you cover this particular story on Cindy Sheehan. She is one of the founders of Gold Star Families for Peace. I don't know how you would contact her but she has been in the public eye (if ever so slightly) for awhile now. She seems to be a very soft-spoken, gentle, caring lady. And she has a very important human interest story she can share.

Cindy and Pat Sheehan: Their son Army Spc. Casey A. Sheehan was KIA in Sadr City Baghdad on April 4 2004

3. she spoke so
poingiantly and painfully honestly-
And without rage, or rudeness-

The Nation needs to HEAR- from those who have been so deeply impacted by this man- the TRUTH. Not the spin.

i listened to her, and wondered if i could EVER speak with such calm authority if my 21yr old son, had lost his life the way hers did-
i doubt it- She's a wise, and amazing woman.

5. I just posted a copy of the email i've been sending out
(see the thread)

i know what you mean about the way she speaks--i imagine myself in her position and i know i would curl up and die for a year or so. but she mentioned that on malloy tonight--that she had to get out of bed and do something even if it stopped the war a minute early.

she has this incredible inner strength and outward compassion.

i've seen her interviewed (can't remember where offhand) and i saw her at conyers "meeting" or whatever congress expected us to call it. i do not recall seeing her tell this story--and this story is so chilling--everyone should hear it. to me, it speaks volumes about bush.
