Regarding your protest outside of Crawford, Texas, and your many statements regarding the death of your son, Casey, and against the war in Iraq, where your son was fighting for his country and died in that war, I have this to say to you.
Yours is the most despicable, shameless, disgusting spectacle I have ever seen from any mother. Do you not care that you are shaming and sullying the memory of your brave, patriotic son? After reading about your "protest" and your long history against the war in Iraq and this President, it is clear to me, and, I believe, to any other objective, reasoned individual, that you are clearly doing this to your son's memory for you own purely anti-American political purposes and for your own stage.
Casey volunteered, Ms. Sheehan, and according to other members of the family, knew exactly what he was about in his service to his nation. My guess is that, because of your activities, there must have been some fairly significant disagreement between the two of you regarding the same.
Now you are using his loyal service and HIS DEATH...to promote causes which he showed by his own service and sacrifice that he stood four square against, and was willing to die fighting against.
How utterly disgusting, and how disrespectful to Casey's memory and all he stood for, how terribly selfish of you.
It is really Casey whom you are fighting Ms Sheenan, isn't it? It is the statement he made with his service and with his life, and his willingness, all of your protests and carryings on notwithstanding, to fight for his nation against enemies he clearly saw, that you are really railing against.
How pathetic of you. Shame on you...how could you?
You are apparently so self-indulgent that you do not care the spectacle you are making of your own son's death, or the disservice or disrespect you do to his memory, to his wishes and goals and to his service to all of us...including yourself.
Please, for Casey's sake, and his memory...for all he believed in...ask his forgiveness and step back from this sorry, awful spectacle you are making.
I pray, and am absolutely sure that God will rest his soul...and I pray that He will have mercy on yours.

I could not help but write this after reading her open letter to the President.
Nice letter Doubt she'll read it though
FYI...my open letter to Ms Sheehan.
Someone from DU will likely snag it and post it there. It'll cause them to say...what they say every day about us.
I would have never thought a simple petition I created on PetitionOnline about the WTC Flag Raising, would ever generate 0ver 420,000 signatures and get the exposure it did at the time...but it did. It just depends on who sees it, who passes it on, and then who picks it up. So you never know.
I feel better having written it and published/posted it.
I hope they do...the more who read it, irrespective of their "feelings", the better.
The net is amazing and FR is a great portal to the world Rathergate is one of the best examples.
It is driving the MSM and the liberals crazy and that is also a good thing.
Do you really care what they say about us? They drop the F bomb in their as if they were petulant children that just learned a new word.
If only she would read it!
However, even if she did, I'm not sure she'd understand what you've just said. It's difficult if not impossible to reason with the unreasonable--and just as difficult to speak of honor to those without honor. Usually, they just don't comprehend the concept.
Ouch...it should read SHAMELESS. I will fix it on my site but cannot do so here. It certainly isn;t shamless...because it is a big sham at the expense of her son. Thanks for catching that.
I want Cindy Sheehan to grow progressively more shrill and tin-foil-hatty. When your enemy is destroying themselves, get out of the way.
Let's let America see what the left stands for -- again. I'd wager than within the next five years she'll be found actively aiding Al Qaeda.
Probably not given her actions...but always worth the try. With God, nothing is impossible.
I doubt it will happen...but it too is worth a chance for her son's memory sake.
Now fixed on my main page (JEFFHEAD.COM) and on my blog.
Let us honor her son here, for Cindy Sheehan won't honor her son there.
Casey Sheehan was a much better human being than Cindy Sheehan.
Great letter Jeff, I agree completely with your take on this.
She has a right to make this stand but she dishonors her sons memory.
Like the Jersey girls, her loss does not give her the right to any greater voice in policy decisions than any of us. Her son died, it is a terrible price to pay, but many others are fighting who disagree 100% with her, the vast majority in fact.
She is a tool of the Left who will use her and her sons memory and spit them out when the next scandal arises.
I am a firm believer in the use of "open letters." See below. LOL.
