Subject: Re: Fw: Nightline Tonight Mon., March 14, 2005
That was my son's unit. He was killed on that day 04/04/04. Here is a letter that I wrote to NightLine about the broadcast:
March 15, 2005
To Whom it May Concern:
Imagine my distress when I turned Night Line on last night and I was confronted with the gory details of my son's murder in Sadr City, Baghdad, Iraq on 04/04/04. Imagine, also, my sorrow and rage at the side of the story that you presented to the American public.
I was on the Night Line Townhall Meeting in Washington, DC on 01/27/05. After I spoke (which I think was a fluke), Ted Koppel dismissed me as being "emotional." First of all, how can I approach this discussion without emotions, MY SON WAS KILLED, AND KILLED FOR LIES? Second of all, that show was not fair and balanced and I think the conclusion "Should we stay" was foregone.
The show last night was also not fair and balanced. To see all the wives being interviewed who had not lost their husbands and to hear what "hard work" it is to be left behind when their husbands are at war. How hard to you think it is to have a child killed in an illegal and immoral war? In this "wonderful" group of families left behind, we had exactly ONE of the wives call us..she is Diane Rose who was my son's Colonel, Frank Rose's wife. The last time we heard from Diane was in October and we feel we have been left behind by anyone connected to the 2-5 Cavalry. Is support only given if your loved one stays alive? One wife was quoted as saying that Sundays were the hardest for the families left behind. My son was killed on Palm Sunday last year..how does anybody think Sundays are for my family?
Am I emotional? Yes, my first born was murdered. Am I angry? Yes, he was killed for lies and for a PNAC Neo-Con agenda to benefit Israel. My son joined the Army to protect America, not Israel. Am I stupid? No, I know full-well that my son, my family, this nation, and this world were betrayed by a George Bush who was influenced by the neo-con PNAC agenda after 9/11. We were told that we were attacked on 9/11 because the terrorists hate our freedoms and democracy...not for the real reason, becuase the Arab-Muslims who attacked us hate our middle-eastern foreign policy. That hasn't changed since America invaded and occupied Iraq...in fact it has gotten worse.
It would be so amazing if your show would put me, or another parent who lost their child on who disagrees with the war and this administration: to have just an entire show..without presenting the false side of the debate. That would take a lot of courage and integrity. I hope your program will exhibit these qualities.
I also think that Mr. Koppel owes me an apology for the rude way I was treated on his show. After I expressed myself about the war being based on lies and that the troops should be brought home immediately because the war was based on lies, I was not thanked for my comments, or my son's sacrifice. He just said to keep the discussion away from emotions. Then, the wife of a soldier who was killed was allowed to speak and she praised the policies of this deplorable and despicable administration, and she was thanked and praised by the panel.
I will try to post some. But please, join me in searching for them and putting her current PR campaign in perspective.
This statement alone proves that the DU Moonbat crowd and their financiers have gotten to her and are paying her.
The Zionists must have killed her son.
She's really cracking up, isn't she? How sad.
Wait a minute... Is Cindy Sheehan actually the author of the DNC / Moveon.org talking points or is she merely parroting them?
I knew those evil Joooos where behind this! </sarcasm... obviously
She's a pig.
She's an anti-Semite as well!
Wow. This lady has some serious problems. I hope O'Reilly sees this. He ought to ask her about these comments.
The left has highjacked the term to mean anyone to the right of Marx.
Hadi Jawad, spokseman for the Crawford Peace House helping Cindy Sheehan and supports with food and water during their protest, said today that is was a 'changing and fluid situation right now' with authorities keeping a close eye on the group and warning them about possible tresspassing violations.
Anyone got a background check on this guy???
99% of libs are bigots. It just takes and argument for them to show themselves.
Game, set, match, Mom.
Now I'm confused. Her son was killed in Israel?
She's spewing the same Jewhating crap you see at every Jewhating site.
*Great* research, Sam.
Well there we have it. This pathetic woman has been totally brainwashed by the evil, loony left.
That script reads straight from the Michael Moore/ Noam Chomsky Blame America First Party. Why does no one challenge her on these views when she is interviewed?
You know, I used to think she should STFU, but I'm beginning to believe she should just keep on going on. It's not helping the appeasment bunch.
<sarcasm>I didn't realize that all of the soldiers that had been killed in Iraq were Jewish...</sarcasm>
What an anti-Semitic piece of crap.
They usually are.
Her remarks could be considered anti-Semitical. That Israel benefitted incidentally should not be her focus.
Why is this woman getting airtime?
She's gone way over the edge from grieving mother to barking left-wing moonbat.
man o man. it's getting to the point where an electric storm accident would not break my heart.
this woman is a total fruit cake and needs to bite the leather strap.
Calling Bob Villa! Please show this woman how to tighten her loose screws.
Its code for conservative jew.
This needs to go to Rush, Hannity, Mark Levin, The Corner at NRO.
I first read this as "changing fluid situation" and thought, "Ewww...what does that mean??"
I sincerely doubt Cindy could tell anyone exactly what a "neocon" is supposed to be. It's just code-talk and people who use the term are not called on it enough.
If she couldn't even get empathy from Ted Koppel, this lady might want to consider that she does have serious emotional problems.
[She fails to notice that Koppel is, basically, on the same Leftist/Lib team that she is on.]
Is she a member of Islam?
I really think she is..
can we ship her to the middle east?
Granted, other people have not responded the way she has under similar circumstances. That does not mean she hasn't been affected profoundly by this.
When my cousin died in Vietnam, one of his brother isolated himself from the family for nearly 15 years. His sister enlisted and made full colnel before retiring.
This is not a mothers spontaneous sorrow and rage, just moonbat boilerplate.
That is straight from the moonbat DU site.
Astoundingly sad. The woman is VERIFIABLY off-kilter in a big, big way, and I do not envy her grief. Not that it makes her actions right now in any way excuseable, but rather it compounds the tragedy.
What disturbs me more that that, though, is that the media is flatly refusing to see her as damaged goods.
Aha, so there are two sides to every story! The completely true side and the completely false side - and the completely false side doesn't count.
Cindy, keep talking - PLEASE keep talking.
You tell me the truth. You tell me that my son died for oil. You tell me that my son died to make your friends rich. You tell me my son died to spread the cancer of pax Americana, imperialism in the Middle East. You tell me that, you dont tell me my son died for freedom and democracy.
Cuz, were not freer. Youre taking away our freedoms. The Iraqi people arent freer, theyre much worse off than before you meddled in their country.
You get America out of Iraq, you get Israel out of Palestine
She should have a love affair with Ray McGovern.
Kooks of a feather go batty together.
I'm totally confised:
If President Bush is just a modern day Hitler (MoveOn.org says so anyway) then why is he sacrificing the lives of Americans just to protect Israel and the NWO/Bliderberger/Masonic/Templar/NeoCon/BlackHelicopter Jews?
THAT WITCH! Sorry but this really makes me mad!
Am I emotional? Yes, my first born was murdered. Am I angry? Yes, he was killed for lies and for a PNAC Neo-Con agenda to benefit Israel. My son joined the Army to protect America, not Israel.
Terrorists killed her son and she blames everyone but them. It's mental illness for sure.
Hadi Jawad, need I say more. If it looks like a moo, and talks like a moo, and stands with people like this... then it must be a moo.
Oooops! Her leftist coaches forget to tell her that some cornerstones of their agenda are for "Internal Use Only."
That is completely in the realm of possibility and the reason I still pray for her.
