Sheehan To Go To Jordan – “Peace Talks”

From the (Vermont) Burlington Free Press:

Peace activist Cindy Sheehan cancels Vermont visit

July 28, 2006

Peace activist Cindy Sheehan has canceled her visit to Vermont because she plans a trip to Jordan for peace talks there, organizers announced today.

Sheehan was to have attended a rally Sunday at Montpelier’s Unitarian Church.

The rally will still be held, with Vermont organizers planning to address renewed efforts to end the war in Iraq and pursue impeachment of the Bush administration.

The event is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. and is free and public.

It’s sort of like Ike saying he would go to Korea. Only different.

Of course Eisenhower was saying what he would do if he were elected President. Mother Sheehan, being a private citizen would be (like John Kerry before her) breaking the law:

TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 45 > Sec. 953.

Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

But as we all know, if you hate America enough you never have to worry about its petty laws.
