About Cindy Sheehan
Cindy Sheehan's son, Casey, was killed in Iraq on April 4, 2004. Since his death Cindy has traveled the country speaking out against the war and the Bush administration. She co-founded Gold Star Families for Peace, an organization of antiwar military family members whose loved ones were killed in Iraq.
In August 2005 she gained international attention when she set up Camp Casey outside George Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas, and demanded to meet with him and know "for what noble cause" her son was murdered. At the time of this writing, she is still waiting for an answer.
