Cindy, The Way We Love Her
Cindy Sheehan was arrested today at the US mission to the UN, where she lost a war -- the war of words.
Here's Cindy's bud's statement:
Ann Wright, a former U.S. Army colonel and U.S. diplomat, said in a statement issued by the group that the U.S. Mission refused to send someone to meet with the women "whose lives and families have been shattered by this destructive and immoral war." The protesters refused to leave without delivering the petition, she said.
And here's the statement from the US Mission:
Richard Grenell, the spokesman for the U.S. Mission, said in response to Sheehan's arrest: "We invited her in to discuss her concerns with a U.S. Mission employee. She chose not to come in but to lay down in front of the building and block the entrance. It was clearly designed to be a media stunt, not aimed at rational discussion," Grenell said.
Given how desperately Sheehan shuns media stunts, which statement do you believe?
