No Rx Carboxactin

Dear Connie, no rx carboxactin   One early morning, no rx carboxactin exactly five weeks after Casey was killed, no rx carboxactin I was awakened by a disturbing dream. No rx carboxactin Casey's father, no rx carboxactin Patrick and I had traveled to Santa Barbara for Mother's Day that year to visit the Arlington West exhibit sponsored by the Santa Barbara chapter of Veteran's for Peace. No rx carboxactin This was when we still believed that that our marriage was not going to be a casualty of the illegal and immoral travesty of the invasion and occupation of Iraq. After the initial shock of having a cherished part of me violently torn away, no rx carboxactin the story that the Army told us about Casey's death did not ring true. No rx carboxactin When a former-Lieutenant of Casey's called a few days after his death to express his condolences, no rx carboxactin Patrick asked him the question that had been on all of our minds: "Casey was a mechanic, no rx carboxactin what was he doing in combat?" The Lt. No rx carboxactin replied: "Didn't you know, no rx carboxactin Casey volunteered." That story about Casey "volunteering" never set right with  me. No rx carboxactin It did not resonate with Casey's Chaplain's heart or his reluctance to go to Iraq in the first place and his vow before he left that he would not "kill anyone, no rx carboxactin" because he could not. No rx carboxactin Then to put the icing on the cake baked with lies, no rx carboxactin when the Lt. No rx carboxactin and one of Casey's Sergeants came to his funeral, no rx carboxactin they told us what a great mechanic Casey was. No rx carboxactin This lie was the one that I found so hard to swallow. No rx carboxactin Casey joined the Army to be a Chaplain's Assistant and when he reported to boot camp in September of 2000, no rx carboxactin he was told that specialty was "full" and he would have to be a "cook or a humvee mechanic." Casey picked the specialty that was the least abhorrent to him, no rx carboxactin but he didn't like it. No rx carboxactin When the Lt and Sgt told me that he was a "great mechanic, no rx carboxactin" I said: "really, no rx carboxactin he didn't even know how to change his own oil."  This was just a small matter, no rx carboxactin but if the two soldiers would lie about a simple thing like Casey's job to try and do damage control, no rx carboxactin then they would lie about how he died, no rx carboxactin too. No rx carboxactin Like I said, no rx carboxactin Casey had been dead for exactly five weeks on that early Mother's Day morning in 2004 and I hadn't dreamed about him yet. No rx carboxactin In this dream, no rx carboxactin I was at an outdoor amphitheater looking at the stage and I heard a booming voice over the loudspeakers say: "Specialist Casey Sheehan." I looked up, no rx carboxactin surprised and overjoyed that he was alive. No rx carboxactin Casey walked out on stage with a can of Diet 7-up in one hand and an M-16 in the other. No rx carboxactin He was wearing briefs and nothing else. No rx carboxactin He nonchalantly put his rifle in his mouth and pulled the trigger. No rx carboxactin I collapsed on the ground screaming: "The Army made Casey kill himself." I awakened from the dream and instantly there was an earthquake in Santa Barbara that shook our hotel room. No rx carboxactin Of course, no rx carboxactin the dream fueled my suspicions that the story the Army told us was not true. No rx carboxactin Since Casey's death, no rx carboxactin we have heard so many stories. About six months after Casey died, no rx carboxactin one of his "buddies" came to visit. No rx carboxactin He said that Casey volunteered for the mission and he said: "Sheehan you don't have to go, no rx carboxactin and Casey said: "Where my Sgt goes, no rx carboxactin I go." Then this Sgt claimed that Casey died in his arms. No rx carboxactin A year later, no rx carboxactin the medic who held Casey's brains in said he was alive when he got to the medic station and the doctor who tried to keep him alive confirmed that story independently from the medic. I spoke to two un-embedded journalists who told me that Casey's unit, no rx carboxactin the First Cavalry, no rx carboxactin was on a "search and destroy" mission and after Casey was killed in the ambush, no rx carboxactin they went driving through Sadr City slaughtering anything that moved and strafing apartment buildings in the Shi'a slum that was built for three-millions of people, no rx carboxactin but contained ten-millions. No rx carboxactin Martha Raddatz, no rx carboxactin ABC correspondent, no rx carboxactin wrote a book that repeated the blatant US military lie that the Mahdi Army was using women and children as "human shields" forcing the US to kill civilians. No rx carboxactin First of all "human shields" are not a very good barrier (unless the First Cav was using sling shots and pebbles). No rx carboxactin Secondly, no rx carboxactin insurgencies need popular support and do not benefit from killing innocent civilians and thirdly, no rx carboxactin the Iraqi people love their women and children as much as we do. The "Casey volunteered" story was repeated in Martha Raddatz's book and she got the info from the soldiers that were in the unarmed and open truck bed that Casey was in when he was killed. No rx carboxactin Again, no rx carboxactin regurgitating the official US military lies. No rx carboxactin Recently this email was sent to my campaign office from a soldier who was near Casey when this event occurred: I'm very sorry what happened to casey. No rx carboxactin I knew him I was in his unit and lived across the hall. No rx carboxactin There has been something I have been wanting to get off my chest though. No rx carboxactin Why am I hearing he volunteered for the mission. No rx carboxactin He was a humvee mechanic and he honestly sucked at it. No rx carboxactin He was a great guy but a horrible mechanic. No rx carboxactin The truth is that when the 1st sgt who was scared to go out himself asked for volunteers all the nco's literally ran to the potapottys. No rx carboxactin Sheehans chief told sheehan to get on the lmtv. No rx carboxactin Sheehan said " no, no rx carboxactin I'm a mechanic" well I remember watching ssg (XXXX) say" get your motherfucken ass on the god damn truck" and he literrally grabbed casey by his collar and dragged him onto the lmtv. No rx carboxactin Don't believe me you better ask somebody. No rx carboxactin That's also what I told Martha Raddatz but I guess for some reason she didn't think she should write it that way. No rx carboxactin Well I'm sorry but if you were told different it was a lie. No rx carboxactin This is the truth I swear on my son. No rx carboxactin God Bless and good luck, no rx carboxactin (NOTE: This email has not been altered by me: CS). No rx carboxactin Martha Raddatz confirmed that she was told this, no rx carboxactin but did not follow up because this soldier was "not on Casey's truck." This account of Casey's last minutes of life upsets me so much, no rx carboxactin but this account makes more sense to me then the other accounts. No rx carboxactin The Army had him for almost four years, no rx carboxactin but I had him for 24 years. No rx carboxactin Iraq Vets Against the War is holding a "Winter Soldier" event soon and they will recount stories of how they participated in war crimes or witnessed war crimes which is not in dispute because the entire invasion and occupation is a war crime. No rx carboxactin These young people came home alive and many of them will have to deal with their demons forever as my Vietnam veteran friends still are, no rx carboxactin but we families of soldiers who were killed will also be haunted by things we know and things we will never know or never know for sure. No rx carboxactin The stories of military neglect, no rx carboxactin abuse (sexual, no rx carboxactin physical, no rx carboxactin mental, no rx carboxactin emotional) or lies are almost as many as there are troops: living or dead.  Casey joined the US Army to be a Chaplain's Assistant, no rx carboxactin was made a mechanic then died 5 days after deployment as a very reluctant infantry soldier who had never been trained in urban guerilla warfare. No rx carboxactin Do I want to sue someone for the wrongful death of my son caused by the criminal behavior of his Commander in Chief and for the cowardice and blood-lust exhibited by Casey's superiors in the First Cavalry? Of course I do, no rx carboxactin not to bring Casey back (obviously) but to prevent future heartache and frustration. No rx carboxactin We families cannot sue because of the "Ferris Doctrine" which prohibits soldiers or family members from suing the government if a soldier is harmed or killed while in service…even for "gross negligence." If we cannot sue the military or government I want to propose a "Casey Sheehan Doctrine" that will read something like this: Whereas, no rx carboxactin citizens of the United States have basic and profound legal rights protected by this country's Constitution, no rx carboxactin irrespective of enacted laws or executive orders, no rx carboxactin past, no rx carboxactin present, no rx carboxactin and future, no rx carboxactin that violate, no rx carboxactin weaken, no rx carboxactin or render nil the very core of those rights, no rx carboxactin and   Whereas, no rx carboxactin US citizens serving in the US military, no rx carboxactin and by virtue of military unilateral enlistment contracts, no rx carboxactin are by default denied these basic legal rights afforded others of the citizenry, no rx carboxactin and   Whereas, no rx carboxactin wars of aggression, no rx carboxactin imperialist in nature, no rx carboxactin unprovoked in substance, no rx carboxactin and profitable by design have been deemed illegal globally, no rx carboxactin and immoral universally; and that the purveyors of such atrocious events are to be held in contempt of humanity for their crimes of war, no rx carboxactin and   Whereas, no rx carboxactin the only justifiable use of force is for protective purposes, no rx carboxactin for life, no rx carboxactin liberty, no rx carboxactin and property, no rx carboxactin the last of which may be construed to mean one's country in a broader sense, no rx carboxactin and   Whereas, no rx carboxactin any member of the US military has the legal and moral responsibility to refuse any order that is illegal or immoral in nature, no rx carboxactin especially one that may constitute a crime against humanity, no rx carboxactin and   Whereas, no rx carboxactin the US invasion/occupation of the country of Iraq, no rx carboxactin known as the Iraq War, no rx carboxactin soon into it's sixth year of prosecution, no rx carboxactin has been shown to have been caused directly on the basis of lies, no rx carboxactin deceit, no rx carboxactin manipulation and duplicity on the part of the Executive branch of the government of the United States, no rx carboxactin and the acquiesence of the US Congress, no rx carboxactin therefore, no rx carboxactin   BE IT RESOLVED, no rx carboxactin that all members of the US military war machine--soldiers, no rx carboxactin marines, no rx carboxactin airmen and women, no rx carboxactin and sailors--and those adjunct to them, no rx carboxactin are called upon to follow their conscience in all matters relating to their military service; and such persons should refuse any orders that might contradict matters of conscience, no rx carboxactin morality, no rx carboxactin or law, no rx carboxactin and further   BE IT RESOLVED, no rx carboxactin that those in uniform, no rx carboxactin and families, no rx carboxactin friends, no rx carboxactin advocates, no rx carboxactin and others, no rx carboxactin of those who serve their country will seek redress for any wrongdoing, no rx carboxactin abuse, no rx carboxactin mistreatment, no rx carboxactin injury, no rx carboxactin or death upon their person; and this justice should be pursued by any means available, no rx carboxactin legal and otherwise, no rx carboxactin up to and including acts of civil disobedience.   Resolved this day of March 5, no rx carboxactin 2008 Cindy Sheehan, no rx carboxactin mother of Casey Sheehan Cindy is running as an Independent candidate for Congress.   We need individuals like her in Washington.   We need individuals like her everywhere.    Please take a look at her website and contribute what you can to her campaign.    It's an investment in your future.
