Cindy Sheehan in Egypt for Islamists - Yahoo! News

Someone will have to explain this to me.  Even through the lens of her opposition to U.S. involvement in Iraq, how is it a good thing to demand the release of Muslim Brotherhood members -- who are standing trial on money laundering and terrorism charges?

Quoted from;_ylt=AsvwzSd3run0IFQl_4yUh8cLewgF:

Cindy Sheehan in Egypt for Islamists - Yahoo! News

CAIRO, Egypt - Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan joined a protest Wednesday seeking the support of Egypt's first lady in ending a military trial of members of the country's largest Islamic organization.

Under the watchful eyes of dozens of black-clad and helmeted anti-riot police, some 50 heavily veiled wives and children of 40 senior members of the Muslim Brotherhood detained for the past year, gathered in front of the headquarters of first lady Suzanne Mubarak's National Council Women carrying banners calling for their release.

"I am here to protest the trial of civilians in front of a military tribunal as this is a violation to international law," said Sheehan, who gained fame in the U.S. for her sit-in outside President Bush's Texas ranch following the death of her son in Iraq.

"As a mother of a son who was killed in the war, I presented a letter to Ms. Suzanne Mubarak to realize how those women and children are suffering."

How is it that in Cindy Sheehan's world, the only mothers who are suffering are mothers of terrorists... and herself?  She'd be a useful idiot, if she was useful.
