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.
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.
We are starting a count of her telephone hang ups during interviews (along the lines of Novak's recent outburst on CNN).
Yesterday alone, Sheehan hung up on Tony Snow on his nationwide radio program and she hung up on Bruce Jacobs of KFYI Phoenix. She didn't like the questions they were asking.
She was on Tony Snow's radio show yesterday and when he started asking her real questions and not just tossing out softballs she got scared and hung up.
SHHHHHHHH!!! How dare you point out the blaring inconsistencies in the looney liberal rhetoric!

They do not want peace. They do not want an independent Palestinian State. Condi and Bush think they are tough and forcing Syria out of Lebanon, and Iran to give up nuclear power and bombs, but Israel can keep them, and hardly a whisper. Wait and see. Iran is no Grenada. Lots of American young men will have to die like your son ... but the leaders sleep happily and safely in their beds. MARK MY WORDS!
that's why i can't sleep at night!!!
Also, how many FReepers (especially those bashing her) have lost a child in combat? That might explain why she is acting a little nutty.
Any fool who takes her side must consider this little ditty, if so, they may be considered antisemitic themselves.
It's telling that liberals are what they accuse conservatives of being.
She hung up on them?
neo con is a code word for jewish
