MEDIA COVER-UP: PEACE MOM SAYS FOREIGN TERRORISTS IN IRAQ 'FREEDOM FIGHTERS'
Tuesday, August 23, 2005 | Kristinn

Posted on 08/23/2005 7:48:07 AM PDT by kristinn

Cindy Sheehan, the mother of a soldier killed in Iraq whose August antiwar vigil in Crawford, Texas has captured the nation's attention as she camped out on the side of a road leading to President Bush's ranch demanding a meeting with him, called the foreign terrorists in Iraq (AKA al Qaeda in Iraq) 'freedom fighters' during her first meeting with reporters when she arrived in Crawford, August 6--remarks that when unreported until now.

Mrs. Sheehan also expressed sympathy for Iraqis who have used car bombs and suicide bombings to fight the American-led coalition forces in Iraq.

Video of her incendiary remarks were found on a link from the website of Veterans for Peace, one of the groups that accompanied Mrs. Sheehan to Crawford.

Surrounded by reporters with notepads, tape recorders and video cameras, Mrs. Sheehan spoke freely in response to a question by CBS News' Mark Knoller.

Mr. Knoller asked, "You know that the president says Iraq is the central front in the war on terrorism, don't you believe that?"

Mrs. Sheehan replied, "No, because it's not true. You know Iraq was no threat to the United States of America until we invaded. I mean they're not even a threat to the United States of America. Iraq was not involved in 9/11, Iraq was not a terrorist state. But now that we have decimated the country the borders are open, freedom fighters from other countries are going in and they (America) have created more terrorism by going to an Islamic country, devastating the country and killing innocent people in that country. The terrorism is growing and people who never thought of being car bombers or suicide bombers are now doing it because they want the United States of America out of their country."

The video was shot by an unknown person who accompanied Mrs. Sheehan on her bus ride from the Veterans for Peace convention, held in in Dallas, to Crawford.

The video also contains footage of Mrs. Sheehan talking strategy on the bus ride from Dallas. In response to a fellow activist who mentions remarks by a woman from the Austin Peace and Justice Center that, "The polls are plumeting, people are dying--now's the time," a smiling Mrs. Sheehan says, "Momentum," and adds that they need to "press the advantage."

The end of the thirty minute video shows the confrontation between Mrs. Sheehan and sheriffs when the activist's march to the president's ranch was stopped because the group violated their agreement to march in the ditch along the road by walking on the road itself.

An emotional Mrs. Sheehan is seen pleading with the sheriffs to be allowed to continue, swearing repeatedly that she did not walk on the road, that she kept her promise to them to walk in the ditch.

Immediately after the confrontation, Mrs. Sheehan says she did walk on the road, but just a little bit, because she's afraid of snakes.

It was a performance any parent of an eight-year-old knows well, but rather pathetic coming from a grown woman.

As many observers know, Mrs. Sheehan has gotten a free ride from the mainstream media. Were it not for the research of Freepers that has been picked up by the likes of Matt Drudge, Bill O'Reilly and Christopher Hitchens, the public would not be aware of Mrs. Sheehan's radical politics and disingenuousness.

As documented by the video, the mainstream press knew of Mrs. Sheehan's remarks on her first day in Crawford where she called foreign terrorists entering Iraq (AKA al Qaeda in Iraq) 'freedom fighters' and expressed her sympathy for car bombers and suicide bombers, yet chose not to inform the American people about them.

There's a scandal here, and it's not just Mrs. Sheehan's sympathy for the terrorists.

Can I offer some editorial advice?

The above should read:

Good that you found them. Have you downloaded them to store off their original site? Cindy's "stuff" has a way of disappearing--something Brit Hume mentioned on his show last night. He showed the picture some Freepers found, and said that when Fox went to her website, the picture had been removed. (We all knew this, but good to hear it being REPORTED.)

GReat work..keep it up. I despise Sheehan and all those groups associated with her, but if their is a silver lining to the Peace movement..it is that it will further fragment the Dem party. The lefties can taste it..it's a mass flashback to the 60's..they fogert that it led to resounding defeats in 68 and 72...

BTW..fearless prediction her that sometime before Labor Day, Sheehan will publicly call on the Senate to reject the Roberts nomination..

So what's new? Cindy Sheehan is just like all the other hardened leftists in the is country. Their job as enemy sympathizers is to weaken the moral and will of our country - same as they did during Vietnam.

Fearless prediction: Before the decade is out, Cindy Sheehan will be caught actively helping al Qaeda in America.

Every time I think this stone-stupid woman couldn't possibly say something even dumber than the last thing she said, she outdoes herself yet again. Kristinn's right - there is a scandal here beyond Cindy's love for the terrorists (errr, "freedom fighters"). A large part of it is just why the press corps even gives this idiot the time of day.

Great advice here. In the 5 years that I have been replying and posting to Free Republic, I have seen incriminating data from liberal sites disappear shortly after we post and cite it.

"Good that you found them. Have you downloaded them to store off their original site? Cindy's "stuff" has a way of disappearing--something Brit Hume mentioned on his show last night. He showed the picture some Freepers found, and said that when Fox went to her website, the picture had been removed. (We all knew this, but good to hear it being REPORTED.)"

That woman is so far gone she should be put in a nuthouse for her own safety and the safety of everyone who goes near her.

BTW, O'Reilly showed a video clip yesterday of Cindy the Moonbat speaking at a rally for terrorist lawyer and terrorist enabler Lynne Stewart. The rest of the media was strangely silent about Cindy and her Moonbat Circus. I wonder if her fifteen minutes are winding down.
