Are These People Insane?

The Associated Press ran a story today covering Cindy Sheehan's return to Crawford, Texas, to resume her protest. No big deal; that's just more of the same. But the quote from the story that caught my attention was from fellow protester Tammara Rosenleaf, who was commenting on the traditional Iraqi meal the protesters at the camp ate for Thanksgiving.
It's significant because the people of Iraq are suffering under our occupation, and for people in America it's business as usual stuffing themselves on fat turkeys.

Suffering under our occupation? Can these people really not be aware of the Saddam Hussein torture and rape rooms? Can they really not be aware of the stonings and beheadings of those who would dare to speak against the Saddam Hussein government? Can they really not be aware of the chemical poisoning of thousands of Iraqi citizens.

Can these people really be this ignorant, or do they just hate America so much that anything the United States does is worse in their minds than anything any tyrant has ever done?

Maybe these people are just insane.

"Maybe these people are just insane."

Bryan, did you mean the Sheehan crowd or the AP?

There are certain responsibilities in journalism... one is to relate the obvious... and, to question the ridiculous, neither of which was addressed in their story.

I appreciate your sanity.

I meant the Sheehan crowd, but you're right about the AP, too. Thanks.
