Advocating on Behalf of the American Military and Defense on the War on Terror

I was heading to Dulles International Airport yesterday to catch a flight back to the San Francisco Bay Area. I am moving home after nine months in D.C., and the place where Cindy Sheehan has spent numerous hours with her Code Pink friends demonstrating in front of any TV camera she can find.

But back in D.Ck. WTOP Newsradio informed me that there was a protest taking place at Langley, and traffic was slowing in the area.

Man, I wish I knew then that it was Cindy Sheehan up to her usual tricks.

I would have missed that flight for a chance to confront Sheehan.

Again.

LANGLEY, Va. – 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."

“…Seriously, if she wants to protest what's immoral, she needs to go to the Al-Queada compounds and protest there. Protest the untold thousands of mass murders, suicide bombings, purposely killing their own innocent children so they can get the media to blame it on our troops. That's it we can take her with us and drop her at the nearest terrorist training camp and see how her protest there goes. Oh wait she thinks they are wonderful and freedom fighters. Will this woman never go away?”
