'Cindy Sheehan, the so-called Peace Mom seeking a second meeting with President Bush in connection with the Iraq War death of her son, says terrorists killing Americans are "freedom fighters."
She made the remark during her trek earlier this month to Crawford, Texas; but her equating the enemy with freedom fighters has not been highlighted by the mainstream media, despite her telling it directly to a reporter for CBS News. '
'"You know that the president says Iraq is the central front in the war on terrorism, don't you believe that?" asked Mark Knoller of CBS, surrounded by a host of other reporters.
"No, because it's not true," Sheehan replied. "You know Iraq was no threat to the United States of America until we invaded. I mean they're not even a threat to the United States of America. Iraq was not involved in 9-11, Iraq was not a terrorist state. But now that we have decimated the country, the borders are open, freedom fighters from other countries are going in, and they [American troops] have created more terrorism by going to an Islamic country, devastating the country and killing innocent people in that country. The terrorism is growing and people who never thought of being car bombers or suicide bombers are now doing it because they want the United States of America out of their country."
I guess some one has not told Sheehan that Saddam harbored terrorist such as Abu Nidal, who was responsible for the murder of Leon Klinghoffer. Klinghoffer was an American, confined to a wheelchair, when he was murdered during the Achilli Lauro hijacking. Nor has any one infromed her that Saddam also paid a stipend to the families of suicide bombers. As for the killing of innocent civillians, Sheehan must be turning a blind eye to all of the suicide bombings of civilian targets in Iraq by her and Fat Mikey Moore's "freedom fighters".
Of course the leftist media has buried this. Remarks such as this would expose Sheehan not as a grieving mother, but as a tool of those that support these terrorists. - Sailor
