CBS News squelched Sheehan's "Islamofascists are freedom fighters" comment

I'm really trying to stay away from the Cindy Sheehan thing. But every time I turn around, something new pops up. This time, it's another abdication of responsibility from the MSM...not surprisingly, CBS (aka "See? B.S.").

Speaking earlier this month to a reporter for CBS News, she actually called the Islamic terrorists "freedom fighters." The very bastards that slaughtered her son. Of course, the MSM will neglect to report this because such a nutbar statement would undermine her credibility, and the MSM has hooked their horses to the Sheehan wagon. Nope, the media will focus on nutbar statements by Pat Robertson, but ignore those by their media darling Jihad Cindy.
Sheehan's comments were recorded on video by Veterans for Peace, a group pushing for Bush's impeachment. (Editor's note: The video of Cindy Sheehan is approximately 30 minutes long, and requires several minutes to load, even with a high-speed connection.)


"But now that we have decimated the country, the borders are open, freedom fighters from other countries are going in, and they [American troops] have created more terrorism by going to an Islamic country, devastating the country and killing innocent people in that country."


"What's her problem then?" asked one messageboard poster on "Her son was killed by a 'freedom fighter.' She should be proud."
Wow. Innocent people, Cindy? The ones blowing up Iraqi kids who accept candy from soldiers, or who try to kill people for having the unmitigated gall to vote?

President Bush said after 9/11 that you're either with us, or you're with the terrorists. Unfortunately for the memory of the brave Casey Sheehan, his own mother has chosen the latter. But don't take my word for it:
Sheehan referred to her son, Casey, not as a war hero, but rather a war victim.

"If I was thinking straight, which I wasn't, I never would have allowed a military funeral, and I wouldn't have buried him in his uniform," Sheehan said.
No doubt that the moonbats will smear me (like I give a wet fart on a dry January Monday) for accurately pointing out Jihad Cindy's own words. She's a media darling because she fits the MSM template of anti-Bush and anti-war. Yet CBS' Mark Knoller gets a quote straight from the horse's mouth (amongst a gaggle of other reporters), and sits on it? Fake documents...leading headline news. Direct quote...(yawn). liberal media bias.
