Cindy Sheehan – Attempting to Erase History

The crazy hate-filled woman who happened to give birth to a patriot is rather peeved.


People are finding out that she already met with the President last year. Her foul mood is understandable. The more people that see her for the publicity stunt that she is, the less credible her “grief” is.

Well, our crack team of internet researchers has uncovered the lengths to which Cindy Sheehan is going to hide the fact of her visit with Bush last year. Her family setup a page on Angelfire with a photo of her son and links to assorted anti-war stuff and a medicinal herb store.

“But the thing is…” that Cindy used to have a page about her first visit with Bush, along with a page of pictures of that visit. Ooops! That would be an inconvenient fact to leave on the web site as she headed to Crawford for her latest publicity stunt. Had better delete that…

Cindy Sheehan (and Dede Miller), let me introduce you to Google.

Google cache of the news story that Cindy Sheehan originally had on her website. You’ll need to press Ctrl-A to highlight the text so that it’s visible. An excerpt:

The 10 minutes of face time with the president could have given the family a chance to vent their frustrations or ask Bush some of the difficult questions they have been asking themselves, such as whether Casey’s sacrifice would make the world a safer place.

But in the end, the family decided against such talk, deferring to how they believed Casey would have wanted them to act. In addition, Pat noted that Bush wasn’t stumping for votes or trying to gain a political edge for the upcoming election.

“We have a lot of respect for the office of the president, and I have a new respect for him because he was sincere and he didn’t have to take the time to meet with us,” Pat said.

Sincerity was something Cindy had hoped to find in the meeting. Shortly after Casey died, Bush sent the family a form letter expressing his condolences, and Cindy said she felt it was an impersonal gesture.

“I now know he’s sincere about wanting freedom for the Iraqis,” Cindy said after their meeting. “I know he’s sorry and feels some pain for our loss. And I know he’s a man of faith.”

And then check out the Google Images cache of the Bush pictures.

  2. Great article!

    Speaking of Cindy, here is what her family had to say in a letter for Matt Drudge to present to the public:

    “The Sheehan Family lost our beloved Casey in the Iraq War and we have been silently, respectfully grieving. We do not agree with the political motivations and publicity tactics of Cindy Sheehan. She now appears to be promoting her own personal agenda and notoriety at the the expense of her son’s good name and reputation. The rest of the Sheehan Family supports the troops, our country, and our President, silently, with prayer and respect.”

    As I stated at the end of my own article on this:

    “Sheehan wants to ask the President “Why did you kill my son?” I have a better question for Her… “Why are YOU killing more of our young men and women by emboldening the Enemy?” Aljazeera is already eating this stuff up, and THAT is where I draw the line on my sympathy.”
