Cindy Sheehan's About-Face on the Anti-War Movement

Hosted by

Five acres of land in Crawford Texas were put up for sale today by anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, who is calling it quits. Sheehan, whose son was killed in Iraq in 2004, captured the media spotlight when she camped outside President Bush's Crawford ranch, hoping to meet with him. She bought the land as a permanent site for protesters. Today, on what would have been her son's twenty-eighth birthday, she headed home for California, disillusioned with the cause she once championed.  Todd Gitlin is a professor of journalism and sociology at Columbia University.
