Cindy Sheehan Is Having An Impact

I found this article, Tennessee National Guard soldiers killed in Iraq, via this Dailykos diary. It is inconceivable that the relatives of these soldiers would have had outlet like this without the spotlight Cindy Sheehan is shining on the lies of the President and his administration. Be sure and read the whole thing but here are some highlights:
Spc. Joseph "Joey" Hunt, 27, of Sweetwater, and Sgt. Victoir P. Lieurance, 34, of Seymour, were members of the 278th Regimental Combat Team. Two other members of the unit on the same combat patrol were injured Monday afternoon southwest of Samarra when an improvised explosive device exploded near their vehicle, ejecting at least one soldier


Hunt had two sons -— 5-year-old Caleb and 3-year-old Josh.

"They don't have any idea what's going on," Hunt's aunt, Pat Thomas, told WATE-TV. "They went to be with their grandmother, Joey's mom, and she was just holding both of them in her arms. And they kept saying, 'Why are you crying, Mamaw? Why are you sad?'"


Andre Lieurance referred to Cindy Sheehan, the California mother of a slain soldier, who recently camped out in front of President Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas, in opposition to the war.

"She didn't speak for me. Now she does," the father told The Knoxville News Sentinel on Tuesday. "I'm with her. I believe we were lied to. (My son) did what he was supposed to. Bush didn't."

"It's a bad war; it's a stupid war," said his mother, Karen Lieurance. "I questioned it from Day One. I think it's a lot easier to support the president when you don't have a family member over there."
Remember the Republicans are trying to turn this into Cindy Sheehan wants the troops out now and we think we should stay the course. While she also wants the troops home ASAP, that is not what this is about! Cindy Sheehan wants George Bush to answer a question, "FOR WHAT NOBLE CAUSE DID MY SON DIE"! That's what this is about and your President cannot answer that question.
