    The US is no closer to the end of its “war on terror” than before, even after having beheaded al-Qaeda in the 2011 operation that wiped out the terror group’s leader Osama Bin Laden. Now a senior Pentagon official has predicted another 20 years of the mission against al-Qaeda. Speaking to the Senate Armed Services early Thursday, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Special Operations Michael Sheehan said the Pentagon wasn’t yet planning to wrap up its “war on terror.” When asked how long it might take the US to beat down terrorists, the official said: “At least 10 to 20...

    Obama’s Amazing AchievementsHis military intervention prompted some stunning reversals. By bombing Libya, President Obama has accomplished some things once thought absolutely impossible in America:(a) War-mongering liberals: Liberals are now chest-thumping about military “progress” in Libya. Even liberal television and radio commentators cite ingenious reasons why an optional, preemptive American intervention in an oil-producing Arab country, without prior congressional approval or majority public support — and at a time of soaring deficits — is well worth supporting, in a sort of “my president, right or wrong,” fashion. Apparently, liberal foreign policy is returning to the pre-Vietnam days of the hawkish “best...

"He shouldn't make my son's death part of his political agenda. It's wrong to use these brave young men, who wanted freedom for all, to degrade Obama." Romney has amplified his criticisms of Obama's foreign policy and defense record with a speech on Monday that fact-checkers and the Obama campaign said was rife with errors and policy reversals

    Our Political Bureau NEW DELHI MANY functionaries of the United States State Department, who handled South Asia under the Clinton Administration, may have to face embarrassment when the Bush regime gets down to locating the factors that made it easier for terrorists to carry out the September 11 carnage. These functionaries, it is reliably learnt, ignored the warnings about the activities and intentions of the terrorist groups operating out of Afghanistan and Pakistan. One of such reports had come from Michael Sheehan, the head of counter-terrorism wing of the State Department. Sheehan’s report also listed the measures that the ...

    SACRAMENTO, CA (KXTV) - The federal government has filed a lawsuit to force anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan to provide her financial records to the Internal Revenue Service. An IRS revenue officer said Sheehan refused to answer any questions about her finances after receiving a summons at her Vacaville home. The U.S. Attorney's office on Tuesday filed a petition to enforce the IRS summons. The summons ordered Sheehan to produce bank account statements for the period from August through early November 2011. According to IRS revenue officer Jose Arteaga, the financial information may be relevant to the collection of Sheehan's federal...

    Occupy protesters and open-carry advocates came together peacefully, and a little awkwardly, at a rally Saturday in Concord. Around 35 to 40 protesters gathered at noon at Todos Santos Plaza to address issues such as government reform, cuts to education and the sagging U.S. postal system, as well as to hear a talk by guest speaker and anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan. The mother of a fallen soldier [Cindy Sheehan] railed against military spending and said people deserve meaningful jobs that "pay not a minimum wage, but a human wage." They were joined by one open-carry advocate displaying an AR-15 semi-automatic...

    Thanks to the helpful feedback I have received over these past two, or so, years, I have seen the enormous error of my ways. I used to be against ALL wars and the use of violence, but (and I must admit a little confusion on this one, at first) now it seems that I am against wars, acts of war, and violence ONLY if a Republican is president. Now I understand with perfect clarity that it was good to protest Bush—and if the US-UN resolution against Libya was done when Bush was president, it would have been wrong—but now it’s...

    Long before the tea party movement grabbed half a dozen Senate seats, before its early proponents ever even dreamed of wearing Colonial-era garb in public, there was longtime Texas Republican Ron Paul, the one guy in Congress trying to abolish the Federal Reserve and shrink the government into near nonexistence. Paul won a devoted-bordering-on-cultish following during his 2008 presidential run, one which, obviously, didn't work out. But now Paul is telling the Times that "it’s at least 50-50" that he'll try again in 2012, and this time, with the movement built largely on his libertarian philosophy now a real force...

"Crimes are crimes, no matter who does them," the statement reads over pictures of Obama and his predecessor George W. Bush due to appear in the New York Review of Books. The statement, published as a paid advertisement, accuses Obama, who was elected in 2008 with the enthusiastic support of US liberals, of continuing Bush's controversial approach to human rights in Iraq and Afghanistan, and in domestic security.

Bush's ranch near Crawford, Texas. Sheehan's four-week long vigil began August 6, 2005, when the Iraq war protests began to reach full boil.

Demanding a meeting with Bush, Sheehan stood near her pup tent and told members of Veterans for Peace, "And another thing I...

    There is rising disillusion among liberals and peace activists that a president who built his campaign on his opposition to the war in Iraq now views America's other conflict as a "war of necessity". Mr Obama has already added 21,000 extra troops to the 38,000 stationed there by George W Bush. In the next few weeks, he is likely to receive requests from the Pentagon for more when Gen Stanley McChrystal, the US commander in Afghanisan, submits a report on the progress of the war.

That is where the White House press corps is working during the president’s vacation. “We need to give the president the moral backbone he needs” to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Sheehan said...

But she's trying with her three days of sailing off the Vineyard this week on the "SS Camp Casey".Carl is a graduate of the school of hard rocks, having served two years at Fort Leavenworth for refusing orders for Vietnam.

    ust a few years back, she was the media’s darling. Cindy Sheehan, mother of a soldier slain in Iraq, led the anti-war charge against George W. Bush. Egged on by the mainstream media and left-wing activists eager to put a “face” to their cause, she camped out in front of Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas. The entire situation became a media circus, with Sheehan at its epicenter. We saw her getting her hair cut at “Camp Casey,” saw her visiting her son’s grave with media flunkies in tow, and watched her get up close and personal with Hugo Chávez. Feted...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 8-20-09 | Byron York
    In an appearance August 18 on WLS radio in Chicago, ABC News anchor Charles Gibson was asked about anti-war protester Cindy Sheehan's plans to travel to Martha's Vineyard next week, where she will protest the Iraq and Afghanistan wars while President Obama is vacationing there. Gibson, whose newscast and network featured Sheehan when she led anti-war protests outside President Bush's Texas ranch in 2005, answered, "Enough already." That's a remarkably different stance from the one Gibson took four years ago. On August 9, 2005, the ABC anchor conducted an extensive on-air interview with Sheehan. "Cindy Sheehan is her name," Gibson...
  • For the Left, war without Bush is not war at all

    Washington Examiner ^ | August 18, 2009 | Byron York,
    That was then. Now, even though the United States still has roughly 130,000 troops in Iraq, and is quickly escalating the war in Afghanistan -- 68,000 troops there by the end of this year, and possibly more in 2010 -- anti-war voices on the Left have fallen silent. No group was more angrily opposed to the war in Iraq than the netroots activists clustered around the left-wing Web site DailyKos. It's an influential site, one of the biggest on the Web, and in the Bush years many of its devotees took an active role in raising money and campaigning for...

    I never thought I would agree with Cindy Sheehan but she actually said something that makes sense. The Washington Examiner's Byron York says the antiwar movement that stirred up trouble during the Bush administration wasn't really an antiwar movement at all: it was an anti-Bush movement. York shared his thesis with antiwar activist Sheehan that the antiwar movement has slipped into hibernation because President Bush left office, and she was honest enough to admit she agreed with him. She sent him the following email): I read your column about the "anti-war" movement and I can't believe I am saying this,...

    Remember when the media lionized Cindy Sheehan and her fellow anti-war Code Pink protesters as they protested the war with tactics like disrupting multiple State of the Union addresses? The President’s inauguration? Hearings and public events too numerous too mention? And I’m sure you’ve all seen news reports about union groups and other liberal activists storming the campaign offices of Republicans and things like that. It happens all the time. It’s interesting to watch those same media types who seemingly have no problems with liberal activists harassing Republicans cluck their tongues derisively when Democrats are confronted by angry constituents at...

    Cindy Sheehan, who drew national attention for camping outside former President George W. Bush's ranch in protest of the Iraq War, is following him to Dallas. Sheehan will lead a demonstration Monday, June 8, 2009 protesting "crimes against humanity." "We can't allow George Bush's crimes to be forgotten just because he is not in office anymore," she said in an e-mail. While most people in Preston Hollow have gone out of their way to welcome the former president and first lady home, they're not exactly rolling out the welcome mat for Sheehan. "Go away," resident Kathie Taub said. "Go back!...
