Cindy Sheehan Sells 'Camp Casey' to Bree Walker

Former Southern California TV news anchor and current weekend host on LA’s liberal talker, KTLK/1150 Bree Walker purchased a 5-acre plot of land near President Bush’s Crawford, TX compound from anti-war protestor gold star mother Cindy Sheehan.

Sheehan, called the property Camp Casey in honor of her son who was killed in Iraq in September, 2004. She has been encamped in Crawford for a good part of the past three years attempting (unsuccessfully) to ask Bush a simple question. "For what noble cause did Casey die for." Bush, who has spoken with dozens of family members of soldiers killed in the four-year old war, has refused to meet with Sheehan.

Walker, told Brad Blog this past weekend that she intends to keep the property "as a ground for freedom and peace" and is considering erecting a memorial there for troops killed in Iraq. She hopes to create a meditation garden on the grounds and to keep it open to the public.

"I'm cashing out my capitalist corporate stocks and buying into a legacy of peace," Walker said. Sheehan will be selling the property for the same price she purchased it for so as not to be seen as profiting from the sale.

An associate of Sheehan's, Tiffany Burns, told the Associated Press, that "Cindy is happy the land is going to be used for something positive,"

Sheehan appeared on Walker’s show on Sunday, and discussed the sale with the talk show host and her listeners.

The Iraq War initially planned to sell the land on eBay but scrapped the idea after getting an offer from Walker.

She spurned an offer from the pro-war group Move America Forward, which wanted to buy the land to erect a monument. The land in Crawford, about 100 miles south of Fort Worth, is near downtown and is about seven miles from Bush’s ranch.

Has everyone forgotten that Casey was estranged from his wacko mother and probably for good reason? Cindy Sheehan is really the bastard sister of David Brenner. Ever notice how much they look alike?
