Contrast: Cindy Sheehan v. Charles Woods


Cindy Sheehan & Nancy Pelosi

Good point:

During the 2004 presidential campaign, a media eager to deny George W. Bush a second term made Cindy Sheehan, who lost a son in Iraq, a national heroine and reported virtually her every word and move.

"Cindy Sheehan," gushed NBC News, "is single-handedly bringing the Iraq debate to Mr. Bush's doorstep." ...

A few conservative outlets have talked to him, notably Fox News, and he's had much to say about how and why his son was abandoned by the government he served.

Woods is especially angry "that apparently the White House situation room was watching our people die in real time, as this was happening."

If Cindy Sheehan had made such a comment, it would have led every evening newscast.

1 Cindy Sheehan was handed absolute moral authority on every thing to do with the handling of the Iraq war by the mainstream media. They even went so far as to photo shop pictures to make it seem like she had a huge ground swell following. Yet put D in the white house and bury the fact he watched as Americans died and denied them any type of support. Yet on that Joe morning show he states his top priority was protecting Americans. No one calls him out on that statement, and why support was denied. They need to release the radio traffic between the seals and who they were requesting support from. A seal just doesn't expose himself to laze a target unless he knows he's either got support over head, or being called in on target. It's not like he's using some Star Wars Deathstar laser to wipe out the target.

2 Greetings:

I don't think that Nancy and Cindy (God, I love a good rhyme!) are holding hands anymore, not even in Frisco.

3 I heard this somewhere on the radio today.
'When ubama called the SEAL's to kill bin ladin they went and did it. When the SEAL's called ubama for a little support, he sat back and watched them die.'
About says it all, huh?

4 I agree with poster #1. They had a Puff flying overhead and the one Seal had target acquisition with a laser. From what is being pieced together, he asked for air support and was told to stand down. The big question is "who told him to stand down and how far up the chain did that command come from?" My feeling is that this went from a military problem to a political one and if so, that makes both Hillary and Obama criminally negligent.

5 Great claims require great evidence so far no one has actually put their name on any of foxed sources are they accusing the US military chain of command of going along with this ?

6 5 Your no razor. Ask the president who ordered "stand down" after he claimed to tell them to aid the Consulate. In which case someone directly disobeyed a Presidential Order.
