Cindy Sheehan Leads protest at CIA, Cheney's House

A group led by anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan has protested near the CIA's headquarters and former Vice President Dick Cheney's home in northern Virginia.

They were protesting the use of unmanned drone aircraft to attack al-Qaida and Taliban targets.

The group of about 70 people rallied alongside a highway near the CIA compound Saturday. About half then marched to Cheney's nearby street and stayed for 20 minutes. Police kept them from going down his street.

Sheehan's 21-year-old son Casey was killed in Iraq in April 2004. She staged a prolonged demonstration outside former President George W. Bush's ranch near Crawford, Texas, in 2005.

She says using drones is "cowardly" and "immoral

Apparently, Cindy is unaware that a Dem is now Vice-President...

Hey Cindy, get your a** over to Biden’s house!

Perhaps they consider the current resident of One Observatory Circle does not have any authority whatsoever...

Apparently she can’t get any of her lefty friends to protest the people who are actually in power.

Hey, Sheethan. Go protest the WH, you jackass. The Zer0 you voted for is the one expanding the war.

If the IQ of this idiot broke into double-digits, she’d be smart enough to be embarrassed by how stupid she is.

She just craves attention and she can’t get it protesting this administration. She’s hoping if she protests Chaney some cameras will show up. Never seen anyone so starved for attention. Kinda pathetic. Your 15 minutes are up Cindy - deal with it.

She hasn’t gotten any attention from the media attacking Pelosi, Obama, or the Dems regarding the war. She knows her only chance of getting attention with the corrupt media is to trash Cheney or Bush.

An unmanned drone should drop a jdam on her head.

I think I may know why she is protesting to VP Cheney. Maybe if Cheney had used more of those unmanned drones her son may still be alive.

I think Cindy Sheehan is a loon, and I don't think she knows what she is talking about.

However ... I have a very hard time with the US sending in drones to attack targets in Pakistan. A very. Hard. Time.

If he doesn't, maybe Cindy will call for his impeachment.

Why are these morons targeting Cheney?

If they don’t like the drone strikes in Pakistan perhaps they should protest the White House where the man who makes that decision works.

But, Code Pink is too political correct to criticize Obama so the most logical thing is a man who is no longer in power.

“As per a study collating all strike data in 2009, the casualties up to July 18, 2009 surpassed the hits over all of 2008. Total fatalities in 2009: 574, Total fatalities in 2008: 165”

It is VERY hard for me to accept that the US would be sending in unmanned drones to kill people within the borders of a sovereign nation without that nation's permission. That's all. Pakistan may not be Utopia or our best friend, but they are still a sovereign nation.

Good point. Speaking of, what’s Code Pink been up to? We are still at war I thought. Are they suddenly OK with war or is the lamestream media not covering their protests?

Obama lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Perhaps she needs to update her Garmin.

Ironic that the location where they were protesting was where a Pakistani terrorist killed two CIA employees and wounded three others as they were waiting to enter the headquarters compound back in 1993.
