Cindy Sheehan Buys Property In Crawford, Texas

She bought five acres to be exact and with her deceased son’s insurance money:

War protester Cindy Sheehan has purchased a 5-acre plot in Crawford with some of the insurance money she received after her son was killed in Iraq.

The group she helps lead, Gold Star Families for Peace, says on its Web site that it will return next month to protest the war in Iraq in the small town near Waco where President Bush has a ranch. Like last year, Sheehan, whose son Casey was killed in Iraq in 2004, will again demand to meet with the president.

“We decided to buy property in Crawford to use until George’s resignation or impeachment, which we all hope is soon for the sake of the world,” Sheehan said in a newsletter set to be sent to supporters Thursday. “I can’t think of a better way to use Casey’s insurance money than for peace, and I am sure that Casey approves.”

Her anti-war gathering in Crawford is scheduled for Aug. 16 through Sept. 2. But Bush is scheduled to be at his ranch mainly during the first two weeks of August.

Sheehan, from California, reinvigorated the anti-war movement last summer with her peace vigil, which started in ditches off the road to Bush’s ranch. As it grew, the group also set up its protests on a private, 1-acre lot closer to the ranch.

Cindy Sheehan is milking the tragedy that has befallen her for everything she can. To sort of quote Ann Coulter, I have never seen a mother take advantage of her son’s death so much.

Allah reports that Cindy bought the 5 acre plot after having a falling out with the Crawford land owner who allowed her group to protest on his land.
