Now I realize she is just a dupe for the Left. She is so ignorant of the situations in Iraq and Afghanistan, and so child-like in her assessments of them, that to attribute cynicism to her would be like accusing a three year old of calculating greed because he believes in Santa Claus.
Michaell Moore, etal should be ashamed of themselves, but they have no shame.
Below is part of a transcript of an interview of Sheehan: "Sheehan plays 'Hardball' with Matthews" on Hardball, with Chris Mathews. I have highlighted the questions and statements that show her ignorance and naivete.
|MATTHEWS: All right. If your son had been killed in Afghanistan, would you have a different feeling?|
SHEEHAN: I don't think so, Chris, because I believe that Afghanistan is almost the same thing. We're fighting terrorism. Or terrorists, we're saying. But they're not contained in a country. This is an ideology and not an enemy. And we know that Iraq, Iraq had no terrorism. They were no threat to the United States of America.
MATTHEWS: But Afghanistan was harboring, the Taliban was harboring al-Qaida which is the group that attacked us on 9/11.
SHEEHAN: Well then we should have gone after al-Qaida and maybe not after the country of Afghanistan.
MATTHEWS: But that's where they were being harbored. That's where they were headquartered. Shouldn't we go after their headquarters? Doesn't that make sense?
SHEEHAN: Well, but there were a lot of innocent people killed in that invasion, too. ... But I'm seeing that we're sending our ground troops in to invade countries where the entire country wasn't the problem. Especially Iraq. Iraq was no problem. And why do we send in invading armies to march into Afghanistan when we're looking for a select group of people in that country?
So I believe that our troops should be brought home out of both places where we're obviously not having any success in Afghanistan. Osama bin Laden is still on the loose and that's who they told us was responsible for 9/11.
