Cindy Sheehan: Welcome back to Cindy Sheehan’s Soapbox. I’m your host, Cindy Sheehan. Today as we tape, it’s the five-year anniversary of when I camped out in Crawford, Texas, asking for a meeting with George Bush so I can ask him what noble cause he killed my son, Casey, for, and so many others. So today with the resistance to the wars for empire being so low, I thought I would bring on two models of resistance to talk about it. We’ll be speaking with Ethan McCord and Jud Newborn today.
