Cindy Sheehan to Protest Guantanamo Bay Prison -- in Cuba (9)

HAVANA - American "peace mom" Cindy Sheehan called for the closure of the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as she and other activists arrived here Saturday to draw attention to the nearly 400 terror suspects held at the remote site.


Sheehan is among 12 human rights and anti-war activists who will travel across this Caribbean island next week, arriving at the main gate of the Guantanamo base in eastern Cuba on Thursday — five years after the first prisoners were flown in.

"Anyone who knows me, knows that I am not afraid of anything," Sheehan said when asked about the possibility of U.S. sanctions for traveling to communist-run Cuba, which remains under an American trade embargo.

"What is more important is the inhumanity that my government is perpetrating at Guantanamo," she told reporters.

Sheehan, 49, of Vacaville, Calif., became an anti-war activist known as the "peace mom" after losing her 24-year-old son Casey in Iraq in April 2004.

She drew international attention after camping outside President Bush's Texas ranch to protest the war in Iraq, and has been arrested numerous times for trespassing.

Treasonous bitch. I've never seen anyone enjoy a family member's death more. She's like a soccer mom from hell, she has an opinion about everything, and what's worse, some dumbfuck reporter will actually write an article about it.

I support gitmo. We have detained a hardcore of islamist murderers there who wouldn't hesitate to kill anyone who wasn't muslim. Any media assertions to the contrary are fabricated in order to tarnish US credibility.

The biggest mistake we can make is to allow her to actually interview these scum. According to the Al-Qaeda training manual (yes, there is one), members are instructed to lie when captured, make allegations of torture in the presence of media, and to generally "ham it up".

You support destroying the principles of a constitutional democracy that your country is built on? I wonder who's really treasonous.

I agree, besides which, if the Constitution isn't strong enough to work when things aren't perfect, then what the hell good is it? Anything will work when everything is hunky dory and no one wants for anything. You could set up a dictatorship, and as long as you had a "nice" leader, everything would be ok.

I think the constitution works fine, even if we have to worry about whackjobs who hate us. It was working during the civil war, it was working when the Brits burned the White House in the War of 1812. It will work in the war on terror.
