Sheehan: US political leadership corrupt

Press TV | July 26, 2008

Cindy Sheehan, icon of the global anti war movement, says that US leadership has been corrupted by not opposing Bush’s polices on the Iraq war and torture.

In an exclusive interview with a Press Tv correspondent Cindy Sheehan criticized the Democratic dominated congress for not impeaching President Bush for waging a war with Iraq based on lies.

Sheehan also said that since she started her protest against the war in 2005, American public opinion has drastically changed; Bush’s approval rating is now at its lowest since Iraq’s invasion.

When Sheehan was asked about Iran’s nuclear issues, she replied that Iran is a sovereign country that is entitled to peaceful nuclear energy for civilian purpose, whereas US and Israel are countries in possession of nuclear arsenals.

Sheehan’s son, Casey was killed during his service in Iraq. She attracted international attention in August 2005 for her permanent demonstration at a camp outside of Bush’s Texas ranch. In May 2007, Sheehan officially ended her involvement as an anti-war activist.

On July of 2007 after President Bush’s commuted the sentence of Vice President Dick Cheney’s former chief of staff Scooter Libby, Sheehan announced that she plans to challenge speaker Nancy Pelosi as an independent, because Pelosi pointedly failed to introduce articles of impeachment against President Bush.
