…is that it is certainly the kind of thing Sheehan would write or say, according to this report (note the Israel reference):
“That lying bastard, George Bush, is taking a five-week vacation in time of war,” Sheehan tells the Veterans For Peace, Mike Ferner. “You get that maniac out here to talk with me in person. Bush needs to tell me why my son died in Iraq. I’ve got the whole month of August off, and so does he.”
Sheehan has since taken up with many anti-war groups who have taken the opportunity to line side-by-side with the mother who plans to take the protest straight to the streets of Washington, D.C. when Bush returns after Labor Day.
“The other thing I want him to tell me is ‘just what was the noble cause Casey died for?’ Was it freedom and democracy? Bull—t! He died for oil. He died to make your friends richer. He died to expand American imperialism in the Middle East. We’re not freer here, thanks to your PATRIOT Act. Iraq is not free. You get America out of Iraq and Israel out of Palestine and you’ll stop the terrorism,” she says.”There, I used the ‘I’ word — imperialism,” the 48 year-old mother quipped. “And now I’m going to use another ‘I’ word impeachment because we cannot have these people pardoned. They need to be tried on war crimes and go to jail. I am not paying my taxes for 2004. You killed my son, George Bush, and I don’t owe you a penny . . . you give my son back and I’ll pay my taxes. Come after me for back taxes and we’ll put this war on trial.”
