This is George Bush’s accountability moment. That’s why I’m here. The mainstream media aren’t holding him accountable. Neither is Congress. So I’m not leaving Crawford until he’s held accountable. - Cindy Sheehan

There are things worth fighting for. And there are even some worth dying for. But Iraq is not one of them. - James Moore

After some protesters left, a small group led by Sheehan vowed to stage a vigil on the side of the road until someone representing the White House came out to talk to her.

While no one from the White House immediately emerged, White House officials were aware of the protest.

"We mourn the loss of every life and Americans deeply appreciate those who have made the supreme sacrifice. The way to honor that sacrifice is to complete the mission so that their lives were not lost in vain," said White House spokesman Trent Duffy.

"The president has met with hundreds of families of those fallen. He grieves with all those who have lost loved ones," he said.

All they can do is keep repeating the party line. It was in RESPONSE to that line that Cindy decided to make the trip to the Crawford Ranch, for godssake! That shows you how much they appreciate a mother whose son, and family, has made the supreme sacrifice!

"We have to honor the sacrifices of the fallen by completing the mission."

"The families of the fallen can be assured that they died for a noble cause."

These were 'assinine and hurtful statements,' according to Cindy, that prompted her to make this journey, now by foot, and in a ditch by the side of a dirt road. That is shameful.
