That's what I say to this bit that Cindy wrote on her own page. She stated that she "Didn't want to cause a disruption" but later on, IN HER OWN STATEMENT
, she said this;
"I wore the shirt to make a statement. The press knew I was going to be there and I thought every once in awhile they would show me and I would have the shirt on.
She then goes on to say that she was brutalized by the police officers that escorted her out without knowing the shirt was inappropriate. But Reuters has a different picture of the Story. You remember this photo?
Well I wonder if the photographer who took it, was the one who had this to say about Cindy being whisked away.
"A Reuters photographer said Sheehan entered the House gallery a few minutes before Bush was to speak and was directed to her seat. She had been seated for less than a minute when a plainclothes Capitol Police officer took her by the arm, said, "You've got to leave," and rushed her from the gallery.Sheehan did not resist and left with a smile.
Rather than hearing Bush say in his speech that there would be no sudden U.S. withdrawal from Iraq, Sheehan was being processed at the Capitol Police headquarters near the Capitol.Schneider said Sheehan was arrested because she was wearing a T-shirt with an anti-war slogan and refused to cover it up.
The Associated Press
added to one of their numerous reports, and even spun the event to seem like Sheehan was the victim, citing her blog;
"I knew George Bush would say things that would hurt me and anger me and I knew that I couldn't disrupt the address because Lynn had given me the ticket," Sheehan wrote. "I didn't want to be disruptive out of respect for her."
She said she had one arm out of her coat when an officer yelled, "Protestor."
But, the Newest Scoop from GOP and College PROVES that Cindy had the chance to get rid of her shirt before she went to the State of the Union Speech. She stated "This afternoon at the People's State of the Union Address in DC where I was joined by Congresspersons Lynn Woolsey and John Conyers, Ann Wright, Malik Rahim and John Cavanagh, Lynn brought me a ticket to the State of the Union Address. At that time, I was wearing the shirt that said: 2245 Dead. How many more?"
The photo on left shows her at the PSOTU protest before Bush's Speech, however when she was being whisked away, her shirt is different. In the left she has a white undershirt on, and in the right, her shirt is an all black long-sleeve shirt. She knew she was going to protest at the speech and prepared to do such.
You're full of it Cindy, almost as much as you're full of yourself.
