Cindy Sheehan and Families of the Fallen
Cindy Sheehan has become a leading voice of anti-war activism since beginning a lengthy vigil near President Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas. The media, pro- and anti-war protesters have descended on the vigil, now known as "Camp Casey", in honor of the son she lost to military action in Iraq. Listeners and other guests weigh in on Sheehan's message.
