Sheehan Lies About Her Anti-Semitic Letter

Perpetually grieving activist Cindy Sheehan huddled with her PR firm (Soros front, Fenton Communications) and came up with a new spin on her anti-Semitic rant to Nightline. — Her letter was doctored.

(I take a special interest in this issue, since I am the person who dug up her letter, which was buried in an obscure usenet group, "bullyard," aka "the band," which has only 17 members.) 

Here is Cindy's latest version from the website of the odious toad, Michael Moore:

"Another “big deal” today was the lie that I had said that Casey died for Israel. I never said that, I never wrote that. I had supposedly said it in a letter that I wrote to Ted Koppel’s producer in March. I wrote the letter because I was upset at the way Ted treated me when I appeared at a Nightline Town Hall meeting in January right after the inauguration. I felt that Ted had totally disrespected me. I wrote the letter to [ Nightline Producer] Ted Bettag and cc’d a copy to the person who gave me Ted’s address. I believe he changed the email and sent it out to capitalize on my new found notoriety by promoting his own agenda. Enough about that."

Let's give Mother Sheehan the benefit of the doubt, and presume she's been driven mad by the Texas heat . Because her letter was posted on usenet on March 18, 2005. At that time nobody , including even Tony Tersh who posted it, had ever heard of Cindy Sheehan:

Cindy

Skeeter asked me to send ou[t] your letter to Nightline.  I did already and believe you got a copy, as below.  I added your name to the bull yard list, along with Judge P on the stuff I send out.  John Hibbs wrote how to sign up for bullyard even without ever sending it  anything.  He is back and may write you again.  I notice he wrote you with great sympathy.  He, along with you and about three others in the Band, I would really love to meet personally.  I, like Skeeter who sends me about 10 emails (mostly cartoons) may be sending TOO much, as I think I tend to do.

Keep up your good efforts, and have a good weekend.   I hope to learn more about you: where you live, your family, work etc.  Time will tell.

Please note that Tony sent Cindy a copy of her Nightline letter– for her approval.

There is no record of Cindy complaining about it having been edited. In fact, she and Tony have continued their correspondence ever since. Cindy subsequently sent Tony numerous emails about her public appearances, and asked him to promote her website.

Of course, apart from the disputed letter there are plenty of other proofs of Cindy's anti-Semitism still available on the internet:

"[My son] was killed for a neo-con agenda that only benefits a very chosen few in this world. This agenda and their war machine will chew up and spit out as many of our children as they can unless we stop them now.

We should not let Israel/USA invade Syria or Iran."

"You get America out of Iraq and Israel out of Palestine and you'll stop the terrorism."

Here's another excerpted email from Cindy to her cyber buddy Tony Tersch, written weeks after she says he posted the allegedly doctored letter:

From: scindy … @aol.com
Sent: Saturday, April 30, 2005 9:35 PM
Subject: Re: WMDs – still there, hidden, taken to Syria etc etc

Could my son be dead because of an evil-neo con Pax Americana agenda?

Wake up dude. This government has always been in the business of killing people.

Peace in our time,
Cindy Sheehan

Moreover, we already know Cindy likes to hang out with well known anti-Semites, like terrorist-supporter, Hadi Jawad, the director of Crawford Peace House.  (Hadi Jawad, is discussed below.)

Here Cindy is featured with a couple of other crackpots who believe Jews are at the root of all of our troubles:

Even the Washington Post bridled at the level of anti-Semitism Ray McGovern exhibited at the John Conyers show trial:

The session took an awkward turn when witness Ray McGovern, a former intelligence analyst, declared that the United States went to war in Iraq for oil, Israel and military bases craved by administration "neocons " so "the United States and Israel could dominate that part of the world." He said that Israel should not be considered an ally and that Bush was doing the bidding of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. "Israel is not allowed to be brought up in polite conversation," McGovern said. "The last time I did this, the previous director of Central Intelligence called me anti-Semitic.

Cindy’s only sorry she got got.
