Sheehan Is a Commie Who Emboldens Terrorists

RECEIVED Thu., Sept. 8, 2005

Dear Editor,
    Please write the truth and state the facts about Cindy Sheehan [“Sheehan's Field of Dreams,” News, Aug. 19] and the communist groups who support her cause – Code Pink, ANSWER, Crawford Peace House,, all who have extreme left-wing views of America and who support the insurgents in Iraq. I just wonder if both sides of Cindy Sheehan were finally printed in the newspapers across this country how many Americans would support her cause? Cindy Sheehan is a disgrace to her son, who fought bravely for America in its fight for democracy across the Middle East. Fortunately, there are more people who oppose her – I saw the grassroots of plain, ordinary Americans who support the troops but cannot participate in a counterprotest because they work for a living. However, when she comes to DeLay's office there will be many more counterprotests. America is beginning to find out just who the real Cindy Sheehan is – she is one who emboldens the terrorists! What a way to honor your son's death – make it unsafe for the troops that are there now. Did you know that her son volunteered freely, and that he volunteered to return to Iraq for his second tour of duty? Also, the polls taken on Aug. 30 state that 80% of Americans have not been affected by Cindy Sheehan's anti-war protest. I dare you to print that!
