NPR Lies and people... refuse to pledge?
I'm listening to an NPR story talking about how the mood on Iraq is changing thanks to Cindy Sheehan and the President's refusal to meet her. However, Bush met her June in 2004:
Sincerity was something Cindy had hoped to find in the meeting [with Bush]. Shortly after Casey died, Bush sent the family a form letter expressing his condolences, and Cindy said she felt it was an impersonal gesture.The report has yet to mention this fact.
"I now know [after having met him] he's sincere about wanting freedom for the Iraqis," Cindy said after their meeting. "I know he's sorry and feels some pain for our loss. And I know he's a man of faith." . . .
The trip had one benefit that none of the Sheehans expected.
For a moment, life returned to the way it was before Casey died. They laughed, joked and bickered playfully as they briefly toured Seattle.
For the first time in 11 weeks, they felt whole again.
"That was the gift the president gave us, the gift of happiness, of being together," Cindy said.
