The most visible face of American mothers who have lost a child in the Iraq war, Cindy Sheehan, has purchased a 5-acre plot in George Bush’s town of Crawford with a portion of the insurance she received after her son was killed in Iraq.
“We decided to buy property in Crawford to use until George’s resignation or impeachment, which we all hope is soon for the sake of the world,” Sheehan said in a newsletter. “I can’t think of a better way to use Casey’s insurance money than for peace, and I am sure that Casey approves.”
Her anti-war gathering in Crawford is scheduled for Aug. 16 through Sept. 2. But Bush is scheduled to be at his ranch mainly during the first two weeks of August.
Sheehan, from California, reinvigorated the anti-war movement last summer with her peace vigil, which started in ditches off the road to Bush’s ranch.
