Family splits with Cindy Sheehan

Hometown newspaper reports that other members of the Sheehan family disagree with mother Cindy's vocal anti-war demonstration:
In an e-mail to a San Francisco radio station, Cherie Quartarolo, a sister-in-law and godmother of Sheehan's son, who was killed in action in Iraq in 2004, said: "We do not agree with the political motivations and publicity tactics of Cindy Sheehan. She now appears to be promoting her own personal agenda and notoriety at the expense of her son's good name and reputation.'
She is being victimized, willingly or unwillingly, by a cynical anti-war movement that thinks nothing of exploiting a mother's grief to advance their short-sighted agenda. By short-sighted, I mean: What do they think Iraq or the world would be like if the U.S. leaves Iraq to the barbarians?
