    Excerpts from an interview with Cindy Shithead..uh...Sheehan.

    Link: http://www.democracynow.org/article.pl?sid=05/06/29/1434216

    AMY GOODMAN: Cindy, what were your feelings when your son Casey went to Iraq? Are they the same as now? And what were Casey's feelings about the invasion and occupation?

    CINDY SHEEHAN: Right. Our family was against it from the beginning. Casey was against it, but he felt it was his duty to go because he was in the Army. And he felt that he had to go to protect his buddies, to be there for his buddies, to be support, and they are brainwashed into thinking that even if they don't agree with the mission, they're brainwashed into just blindly following it. I begged Casey not to go. I told him I would take him to Canada. I told him I would run over him with a car, anything to get him not to go to that immoral war. And he said, “Mom, I wish I didn't have to, but I have to go.”
    ----

    I would never, NEVER, say something like that to my child.

    Hard to verify the dead's statements....

    The fact that he re-enlisted after already being sent there once makes Mom's assertions questionable.

    I never have agreed with the whole "brainwashing" thing and never will.

    "brainwashing"? No way.
    On one of Mr.Ps' last OERs (Officer efficiency report) the writer said, "Mr. P never fails to openly and honestly voice his opinion".
    No brainwashing there... :teeth:

    Come to think of it, none of my OERs ever listed "political correctness", acquiesence,or tact as one of my best qualities.

    Does this mean we were both leaders, or renegades? :scratch:

    sounds about right....her boy made a choice, and sadly, sacrificed his life for that choice.

    The boy was a hero, against strong opposition from a parent he remembered and fulfilled his duty. He re-enlisted, he protected, and fulfilled his duty....

    As we said in the Navy, He is still on Patrol!

    :rock:

    This young man rocked!
