Sheehan on Anderson Cooper 360 (Caught in lie)
CNN Transcripts ^ | 8/15/2005 | Anderson Cooper

Posted on 08/15/2005 6:57:27 PM PDT by jhouston

On Anderson Cooper 8/15/2005;

COOPER: You were also quoted as saying, "My son joined the Army to protect America, not Israel. You get America out of Iraq and Israel out of Palestine and you'll stop the terrorism." How responsible do you believe Israel is for the amount of terrorism in the world?

SHEEHAN: I didn't say that.

COOPER: You didn't say that? OK.

SHEEHAN: I didn't -- I didn't say -- I didn't say that my son died for Israel. I've never said that. I saw somebody wrote that and it wasn't my words. Those aren't even words that I would say.

I do believe that the Palestinian issue is a hot issue that needs to be solved and it needs to be more fair and equitable but I never said my son died for Israel.

COOPER: OK, I'm glad I asked you that because, you know, as you know, there's tons of stuff floating around on the Internet on sites of all political persuasions.

SHEEHAN: I know and that's not -- yes.

COOPER: So, I'm glad we had the opportunity to clear that.

SHEEHAN: Yes, and thank you because those are not my words. Those aren't -- that doesn't even sound like me saying that.

COOPER: OK. I'm very glad we got that...

SHEEHAN: And I have read it. I have read it. I'm glad you did too.

This is what she wrote in a letter sent to ABC Nightline producers;

"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 George [W.] 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, because 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."

And just in case you doubt the legitimacy of the letter in question, this from Rick Lowry at National Review today (The Corner) MORE SHEEHAN--PNAC OBSESSIVE [Rich Lowry ] The letter supposedly written by Sheehan has been circulating on the internet. Here's a choice bit: “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 George [W.] Bush who was influenced by the neo-con PNAC agenda after 9/11.” I didn't include it in a Sheehan column I wrote today, because it wasn't totally clear it was legit. But ABC News has now confirmed to us that this letter was signed by Sheehan and sent to them on her behalf. Posted at 04:44 PM

I've sent this to both Anderson Cooper and Rick Lowry. I suspect that my e-mail to CNN will never make it through the "spam" filter, but maybe someone at LGF or National Review will get this out there forcing Anderson to "correct" the record tomorrow.

There are all types of warnings in nature. When a cat puffs its fur up and hisses, you know not to try to pet it. When you here a rattling sound coming from the ground, you know to look for a rattlesnake. When a skunk raises its tail at you, you know you shouldn't be there.

A similar big warning in politics is when David Duke agrees with you. Sheehan is in dangerous territory and should reconsider what she is doing.

Thank you TBV for the reminder. I thought she was just plain lying. But now I see she was lying with nuance.

It's interesting, Rak, that I would not perhaps have known about the personal story of Casey Sheehan, and now I will never forget him. He went out to save his fellow soldiers when they were in trouble. I mourn his death, but so differntly than "Mother" Sheehan.

Cindy,
S.... asked me to send our your letter to Nightline.  I did already and believe you got a copy, as below.  I added your name to the bull yard list, along with Judge P on the stuff I send out.  J... H... wrote how to sign up for bullyard even without ever sending it  anything.  He is back and may write you again.  I notice he wrote you with great sympathy.  He, along with you and about three others in the Band, I would really love to meet personally.  I, like S....r who sends me about 10 emails (mostly cartoons) may be sending TOO much, as I think I tend to do.

Keep up your good efforts, and have a good weekend.  I hope to learn more about you: where you live, your family, work etc.  Time will tell.

To: All

To All the FReepers who wish they could have been in Crawford
to support President Bush and the Troops.

You do not have to be in Texas to show support for the Troops.

Visit your local military base today and at least once a week.

Or a military or veteran hospital.

Learn to play offense, not defense,
and quit giving free publicity to those who mock our troops.

Spineless US Senate would rather protect Hanoi Kerry
than deal with the anti war crowd.

Anyone who thinks Hanoi Kerry isn't behind the anti war crowd needs to get a clue.

It's time to support our troops and ignore the jelly fish in the US Senate!

There is no need to impeach Hanoi Kerry from the US Senate

He is there illegally!

WAKEUP AMERICA!

For those who "forgot" what Hanoi Kerry
did in the past read on and learn the truth.

Hanoi Kerry was still a USNR officer while he:
gave false hearsay testimony to Congress
negotiated with the enemy
helped the US lose a war
abetted in the deaths of millions
created a hostile environment for all servicemen

Why is Kerry still in the US Senate?
This is in violation of
U.S. Constitution Amendment 14 Sec 3
http://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/constitution.amendmentxiv.html

And the FBI has proof of his treason.

Hanoi Kerry Timeline of a traitor

May 1970
Kerry and Julia traveled to Paris, France and met with Madame Nguyen Thi Binh, the Foreign Minister of the Provisional Revolutionary Government of Vietnam (PRG), the political wing of the Vietcong, and other Viet Cong and Communist Vietnamese representatives to the Paris peace talks, a trip he now calls a "fact-finding" mission.

(U.S. code 18 U.S.C. 953, declares it illegal for a U.S. citizen to go abroad and negotiate with a foreign power.)

That's why Nazi Klan Boy David Duke is supporting her. He has an article on his website supporting Sheehan. So Swastika Boy supports Sheehan. No surprise there. What can I say? Birds of a feather... While I sympathize with Mrs. Sheehan on her loss, having worn the uniform myself, I deeply resent the way she is using her son's death for her own aims. It's a disgrace to his memory and the memory of all those other brave young people who gave their lives for this country. This isn't even about whether you support or oppose the war. It's about respecting these brave young men and women.

To heck with the commission and their conclusion that the WTC attack could NOT have been prevented, and IF they had known about Able Danger they would have investigated! What the hell would that have helped anyway? The real crime is the "WALL" and it's founders are the criminals! If the "WALL" had NOT been there, maybe FBI would have found out that ATTA and his other murderers (terrorists) were learning flying airplanes without taking lessons in take offs and landings, and that should have been suspicious enough!??!

she SAID this:

We have no Constitution. We’re the only country with no checks and balances. We want our country back if we have to impeach George Bush down to the person who picks up the dog sh-t in Washington! Let George Bush send his two little party animals to die in Iraq. It’s OK for Israel to have nuclear weapons but we are waging nuclear war in Iraq, we have contaminated the entire country. It’s not OK for Syria to be in Lebanon. Hypocrites! But Israel can occupy Palestine? Stop the slaughter!
