Sheehan Family Speaks Out.

In a "Flash" on the Drudge Report, we find that Cindy Sheehan does not enjoy a solidarity with the rest of her family with regards to her protest outside of the Bush ranch in Crawford, Texas.

To quote the email as posted on Drudge:

Our family has been so distressed by the recent activities of Cindy we are breaking our silence and we have collectively written a statement for release. Feel free to distribute it as you wish. Thanks Ð Cherie

In response to questions regarding the Cindy Sheehan/Crawford Texas issue: Sheehan Family Statement:

The Sheehan Family lost our beloved Casey in the Iraq War and we have been silently, respectfully grieving. We do not agree with the political motivations and publicity tactics of Cindy Sheehan. She now appears to be promoting her own personal agenda and notoriety at the the expense of her son's good name and reputation. The rest of the Sheehan Family supports the troops, our country, and our President, silently, with prayer and respect.


Casey Sheehan's grandparents, aunts, uncles and numerous cousins.

It is a developing story, but if this is true then it certainly gives credence to what several columnists and pundits have said in recent days: that Cindy Sheehan is a tool of a faction of the MSN for the bashing of Bush and of this country's fight in Iraq. She is "special" and a celebrated member of the War Against Bush for as long as she generates ratings.

I would hope the rest of her family would be able to talk some sense into her, but knowing how families are I realize that she's just simply out of control and they are the ones now suffering for it. They've lost their grandson, nephew, cousin... and now they've lost his mother a well.

Update: You want a story of another family? Go read about the bravery of the extended family of Shane Kielion. This young man left a 23 year old widow and a son who was born quite literally as his soul was passing from this earth.

She's a tool because she want's to be one, no sympathy here for this sorry POS, she's had over a year of molly coddling and has chosen her new found allies to rally with. Her son lived up to everything she isn't.
