Cindy Sheehan Redux

You know, I was pretty much done with Sheehan. She's nuts, right? Except I didn't realize just HOW off her rocker she is:

In a post over at, Lee notes that Cindy Sheehan went to London to meet with a whole bunch of other wackjobs. OK, fine. But then he notes who the other speakers were:

The scheduled speakers included Sheehan, who has become a focus of anti-war sentiment in the United States by camping outside the Texas ranch of President George W. Bush; Hasan Zergani Hashim, a spokesperson for Iraq’s radical Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr; and leftist British legislator George Galloway.

The usual suspects, right? However, did you notice in there that a spokesman for Muqtada al-Sadr was speaking? Hmmm.....

But wait --- how was Casey Sheehan killed?

In the first 48 hours of fighting Sadr’s followers seized police stations and government buildings across the country including the Governor’s Office in Basra. At least 75 Iraqis and 10 American servicemen were killed, among them Army Specialist Casey Sheehan.

That's right -- Cindy Sheehan is sharing a stage with a spokesman for the guy who killed her son.
