It links over to Newsday so here is an excerpt:
CRAWFORD, Texas For more than a year, a modest bungalow known as "Peace House," located a few miles from President Bush's ranch, has served as a headquarters for antiwar activists. It is lonely work, with little more than a skeleton crew on hand much of the time.
But then Cindy Sheehan hit town.
The 48-year-old mother of Army Spc. Casey Sheehan, who was killed in an ambush in Baghdad last year, is consumed by the kind of grief that turns into a furious determination to do something in her case, to confront the president and force him to explain why her son died.
Now, in the space of just a few days, what started out as a seemingly quixotic personal mission has become something of a phenomenon with media swarming around Sheehan, leading liberal and antiwar activists parachuting in to try to make her their long-sought voice, and political experts in both parties working to assess what role she may have in galvanizing the public's gathering unhappiness with the increasing American casualties in Iraq.
Antiwar leaders hope that putting the spotlight on Sheehan will motivate Americans who oppose the war, creating a political force strong enough to compel the Bush administration to change course.

Hey Cindy why don't you just put a big target on our Soldiers's backs while you are at it?
It would be worth the airfare to fly a collection of Iraqi's who lost children, wives, and husbands to Saddam to greet her at the front gate. There should be plenty of Kurd gas and rape room pictures as a backdrop.
More "journalists" celebrating the anti-Semite Cindy Sheehan.
Sheehan is disgracing her son's memory, his sacrifice, and herself. What makes her sacrifice any greater than that of the 2000 other families? Or that of 9/11 families.
STFU Sheehan. Your caterwalling is feeding the anti-war crowd, which in turn is feeding the terrorists, who, so-encouraged, are killing other American sons.
You make me sick Sheehan - my sympathy for your loss has been replaced by anger at your irresponsibility and immaturity.
Hello again Melanie,
Our family has been so distressed by the recent activities of Cindy we are breaking our silence and we have collectively written a statement for release. Feel free to distribute it as you wish. Thanks – Cherie
In response to questions regarding the Cindy Sheehan/Crawford Texas issue:
Sheehan Family Statement:
The Sheehan Family lost our beloved Casey in the Iraq War and we have been silently, respectfully grieving. We do not agree with the political motivations and publicity tactics of Cindy Sheehan. She now appears to be promoting her own personal agenda and notoriety at the the expense of her son's good name and reputation. The rest of the Sheehan Family supports the troops, our country, and our President, silently, with prayer and respect.
Casey Sheehan's grandparents, aunts, uncles and numerous cousins.
Thanks for posting that. That should be sent to all the MSM news outlets!
If it can be shown to be authentic. I have my doubts.
Anyone who aides terrorists in Iraq is a traitor in my book. Anti-war activists are providing emotional support to terrorists. Sheehan too.
Since Code Pink is with her in Crawford, she has aligned HERSELF with traitors. If you lay down with dogs you get up with fleas.
Tell that to the terrorists, troll and those that died on 9/11. Go hate America somewhere else.
She is not a Traitor she is as Mother who want to know why?? her child had to died.
He enlisted twit! Twice!
