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.

"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
Cooper let the terrorist sympathizer off scott free.
Busted, "Mother" Sheehan. By the internet that you love so much.
She is trying to back off since david duke has now endorsed her and anderson cooper is blatantly trying to cover for her and her anti-semitism.
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.
Yep, Anderson caught Sheehan in a lie and in typical MSM fashion, let her off the hook as usual.... (Yawn)
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.
What is coopers email?
More lies -- and exposure.
Of course he did. They always attack to a certain point and leave you with enough rope to hang yourself or enough room to wiggle free if you are a rat.
You wrote "You know you have to parse everything liberals say. She told Cooper she didn't say that. She didn't. She wrote it."
Thank you TBV for the reminder. I thought she was just plain lying. But now I see she was lying with nuance.
You might want to drop el Rushbo a copy, too.
It all depends on what you say when you say "say", eh?
momma sheehan has also said her son opposed the war. (yet he re-upped after it started, did he not?)
It all depends on what you say when you say "say", eh?
She didnt say it, she wrote it.
Glen Beck described her to a "T" today calling her a "tragedy slut"!!
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.
Here is >a letter that I wrote to NightLine about the broadcast: >Love >Cindy Sheehan.From "TER...." ter...@mweb.co.th -

Subject: Re: Fw: Nightline Tonight Mon., March 14, 2005
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 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!
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
And the FBI has proof of his treason.
Hanoi Kerry Timeline of a traitor
includes FBI files
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.)
a) A person charged with absence without leave or missing movement in time of war,
or with any offense punishable by death,
may be tried at any time without limitation.

Dear Friends and Supporters
The website www.CindySheehan.com has been created to get our message of bringing the troops home soon and calling attention to the lies and betrayals of our government to our country, world, and families.
There is a petition to sign to present to mainstream media to have me appear on the shows.
Please sign the petition and pass it around.
When the petition drive is over, it will be used as a place for all my articles, interviews, pictures, videos, etc.
Cindy Sheehan cofounder of Gold Star Families for Peace
Mother of Spc Casey Sheehan kia 04/04/04
picking the lice out???
She pulled a 180 on 360.
This pathetic excuse for a woman could not even tell the truth about what she had for breakfast.
True...although I believe he also agrees with us on some issues like Affirmative Action.
If that is her, that is a great pic!
And as a side note, she needs a new make-up person.
And that pathetic excuse for a journalist, Cooper....wouldn't even confront her with her own lie.
A non-denial denial.
Maybe not this case, but I wonder if some of these leftist groups don't offer support if she'll just sign a statement that they print up and post as her own words. It's not like they wouldn't take advantage of her.
"I didn't -- I didn't say -- I didn't say that my son died for Israel. "
vs. the letter ...
"Yes, he was killed for lies and for a PNAC Neo-Con agenda to benefit Israel."
Wow. how ... CLINTONESQUE.
she SAID this:
We have no Constitution. Were 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. Its OK for Israel to have nuclear weapons but we are waging nuclear war in Iraq, we have contaminated the entire country. Its not OK for Syria to be in Lebanon. Hypocrites! But Israel can occupy Palestine? Stop the slaughter!
You can see her letter (and part of her email address?) if you scroll down about 1 screen's worth.
If the link doesn't work the first time, try it again.
I hope someone sends this to Rush, Drudge...
I sent a HUGE e-mail to NRO media blog. David Duke's link, her usenet post, and her speech with Lynn Stewart.
