Anti-War Monger

You know her as the woman who camped on the doorstep of George W. Bush’s Crawford Ranch in the summer of 2005. Cindy Sheehan’s month-long peace action, held after her son, Casey, was killed in Iraq, drew daily CNN coverage. Dubbed “Camp Casey” by the media, Sheehan’s makeshift camp stood for nearly a month, and led to her later-life career as a political activist and author.

Sheehan’s most recent work is Myth America: The 10 Greatest Myths of the Robber Class and the Case for Revolution, an Internet booklet in which she busts the mythology she claims all Americans have fallen for. (Sample myths: “Myth One: America: Greatest Nation in the Universe!” and “Myth Ten: 19 Muslims with box cutters were responsible for 9/11.”)
