Cindy Sheehan

Although I heard the interview live yesterday morning on Air America Radio, I listened to it again today. I was deeply moved by the feeling, words and sincerity of Cindy Sheehan, who lost her son, Spc Casey Austin Sheehan, who was 24 years old, in Iraq. She is co-founder of Gold Star Families for Peace.

Mike Malloy, the best Talk Show host there is online, did a wonderful job of interviewing Cindy. (Cindy's words "Of all the interviews I have done this year, your's is the one which gives me most honour...")

No rightwingers ever dare to call Mike as they would be shown up for what they are - bullies and cowards, and that would never work with Mike.

The way Cindy saw evil incarnate, that was Bush, was something that I have always believed. She said that when she met Bush, she met "a man so disconnected from humanity that he can't even pretend to be a human being"..

You can listen to the interview at the archives maintained by benburch at the archives of the Mike Malloy Show and go to the show for Thursday 8th July 2005. Cindy's interview starts at about the 27th minute and goes on through 5 segments.

If there is one ounce of humanity in your veins, you will weep as you listen to this brave woman as she faces to a life without her first born, a son tricked into service on false promises and sent to his death on falsehoods by an AWOL masquerading as a C-in-C.
