"Peace Mom" turns "Peace Pawn"

America's favorite anti-war mother, Cindy Sheehan just cannot seem to keep her mouth shut these days. Between speaking for up to 11,000 dollars an hour and endless TV interviews, she has found time to take a foriegn government sponsored trip to Venezuela.

We must stop the Iraq war, we must not let it happen again, said Sheehan, who has been arrested at least twice while demonstrating outside the White House.
Tuesday's march ended outside the armed forces headquarters, on an avenue usually reserved for military parades. "It's a peace route now," Sheehan said.

It is ironic that Sheehan would call that avenue a "peace route" as the Venezuelan military is suspected of countless murders and unthinkable corruption.

The story of the murder of three of the six young people, who had left after their nighttime exam at the Universidad Santa María to head home, seems to be taken straight out of post-Allende Chile, where the Office of National Intelligence (DINA) murdered defenseless citizens on the streets

Amnesty International has more:
Amnesty International has documented police intimidation of relatives of the victims of human rights violations committed by police and the failure to grant them protection or implement effective protection as well as the failure to investigate complaints of threats. Venezuelan human rights organizations have documented over 100 police killings in Guárico State in recent years. Many Venezuelan states have a similar history of police abuse.

The truth of the matter is, Cindy Sheehan is willing to align herself with a murderous dictator and be used as a pawn in Chavez's goal of turning South America to the left. Ms. Sheehan: Your eldest son would be outraged. You are not doing him a service.
