Come Meet with Us, Cindy Sheehan

An open letter to Cindy "Israel killed my baby" Sheehan from The Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. It begins appropriately enough:

"I know you want to talk to President Bush about the conflict in Iraq, the war in which your son, Specialist Casey Sheehan, was tragically killed. I also know that while the President met with you previously, he is not eager to see you again – not now that you are affiliated with and supported by David Duke and handled by slick public relations professionals."

The open letter, which ran as a full page ad in the Waco Tribune, asks Ms. Sheehan to meet with the victims of Saddam's torture regime.

"You say you want to know, “What is the noble cause that my son died for?” They would answer: Your son died fighting a war against an extremist movement intent on destroying free societies and replacing them with racist dictatorships.

The Iraqis will want to tell you what life was like under Saddam Hussein – the mass murders of hundreds of thousands, the women and girls who were gang-raped by Saddam's cronies, the creative forms of torture that were ignored by the “international community.”

I know several Baghdadi businessmen whom Saddam suspected of disloyalty. He had their right hands amputated. Want to meet them? The doctors who were forced to perform these amputations are worth chatting with as well."

Want to lay odds on this lunch date ever happening?

Nope. Most people dont like having their preconceptions questioned.
