We Still Have Cindy Sheehan to Kick Around

I vowed never to mention the woman again, but this one is so far beyond the pale I can’t resist: Ms. Sheehan has joined in a protest on behalf of the Egyptian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, a radical Islamist group:

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….

I’m not sure what “international law” that would be, but if we’re going to start talking about the niceties of criminal procedure, Cindy might want to have a few words with her heroes Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez. That’s different, of course. Somehow, on the left it always is.
See whether you can decipher this logic:

“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.”

I suppose a lot of mothers whose sons were killed in “the war” would have a more negative attitude toward the Muslim Brotherhood. But for Ms. Sheehan, being violently anti-American is the only qualification she’s looking for.
