    PR Machine Behind Cindy Sheehan?ABC7 Looks At The Financing Of 'Camp Casey'
    By Mark Matthews
    Aug. 25 - With the President back at his Crawford ranch, the anti-war protest right outside his ranch is getting a lot more media attention. ABC7 looks at who is financing the operation and who's providing on-the-ground support.

    The camp at Crawford is full of Cindy Sheehan supporters, people from all walks of life. But off to the side are a small group of professionals, skilled in politics and public relations who are marketing her message.

    Cindy Sheehan kneels before a cross with her son's name on it, touches his picture, wipes her tears. It's an outpouring of emotion that is part of a scheduled news event organized daily for the television radio and print reporters who crowd in to capture a mother's grief.

    Cindy Sheehan: "And I'm never going to see him again, I'm never going to hold him again, I'm never going to hear his voice again."

    Their bills are being paid by True Majority, a non-profit set up by Ben Cohen, of Ben and Jerry's ice cream fame.

    SNIP
    Cohen's liberal group has teamed up with Berkeley-based MoveOn.org, an anti-Bush group co-founded by Joan Blades.

    SNIP
    This week, Simi Valley, California Gold Star wife Melanie House flew to Idaho for a protest and then flew to Crawford.

    Reporter: "Can you tell us if you're getting help in airfare to come down here?"

    Melanie House: "What difference does that make?"

    There is real reluctance to talk about whose paying.

    I don't think it matters who is paying for it. Of course left wing antiwar activists are. Most of the things she parrots are nothing but typical left-wing antiwar talking points. That is a no-brainer. What matters to me is that the lies, distortions, historical twists, and other crazy statements that are coming from down there are being ignored by most of the media. They are still portraying Cindy Sheehan as just a sad mother who lost her son. However they are ignoring that she is so much more...she is a political activist. She opposed Gulf War I and she opposed the Afghanistan war. She promotes an immediant withdrawl from both Afghanistan and Iraq. What she fails to mention, and nobody really presses her on, is that such a move would result in civil war and massive bloodshed (if not ethnic cleansing as well). In other words her policies are just as, if not more, dangerous than any policy Bush has come up with.

    Anne Coulter rightly labels her "Commander in Grief".
