Cindy Sheehan's Lonely Vigil in Obamaland

• CounterPunch

Cindy Sheehan will be at Martha’s Vineyard beginning August 25 a short way from Obama’s vacation paradise of the celebrity elite but very far from the Afghanistan and Pakistan and Iraq where the body bags and cemeteries fill up each day as Obama’s wars rage on.    She will remain there from August 25 through August 29 and has issued a call for all peace activists to join her there.  For those of us close by in the New England states and in New York City, there would seem to be a special obligation to get to Martha’s Vineyard as soon as we can.

But, by throwing Cindy in jail, he was at least giving her some acknowledgment.  Obama wont even give the question any consideration. That question for me being, "why aren't you bringing our boys home like you promised?", and "why are you sending MORE of them there?", and maybe even, "why do you have the same guy George used, running the war for you?" It is simple: It is the same puppet with a different name and face. The same nefarious groups are still running things. Think "international banking", and it all gets a lot more clear.......

 This is very, very old news...and despite the fact that you're making it sound/seem like a personal crusade against Obama just because, well, everything IS a personal crusade against the should have been here a few years ago when she was doing the same thing against Bush and, worse yet, your ever-so-perfect and beyond reproach president was throwing her ass in jail for it - at least Obama (as bad as y'all make him out to be) ain't doing that to her...yet.
