Sheehan Chatter on the Arab Street
Found this story about the Middle East Press & Cindy Sheehan over at the ever-interesting NewsBusters.org. It talks about how intently the Muslim world watches our political happenings --and the anti-war movement. So much so that they reported on an aspect of the Sheehan Resignation that the American press chose to forgo...Sheehan's exodus from the Democratic party.
"…In fact, one Syrian columnist actually did a significantly better job than any major American journalist accurately tying Sheehan's disgust with Democrats to their failure to live up to their 2006 campaign promises." (source)
