The mother who became an anti-war leader after her son was killed in Iraq, is calling it quits.
Cindy Sheehan announced on a web diary that she's walking away from the peace movement that her son died "for nothing." In a twist, Sheehan is blasting the Democratic party, saying her Democratic allies cared about her only as long as she limited her criticism to Republicans. She also said once she began criticizing Democrats she came under attack from them too.
Sheehan achieved national attention when she camped outside President Bush's home in Crawford, Texas, throughout August 2005. The vigil made her one of the most prominent figures among opponents of the war.
