DALLAS (AP) – In a story April 25 about protesters who gathered for the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas, The Associated Press erroneously reported that Army Spc. Casey Sheehan, the son of anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, died eight years ago. He died in Iraq nine years ago.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Anti-war activist Sheehan joins Dallas protesters
Anti-war activist Sheehan joins protesters targeting dedication of Bush Presidential Center
DALLAS (AP) _ Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan is among the protesters gathering near the site where the George W. Bush Presidential Center will be dedicated.
She says she’s protesting both Bush and his successor in the oval office.
Sheehan famously camped out near Bush’s Crawford, Texas, ranch to protest the war in Iraq. Nine years after her son died in Iraq, Sheehan says she still has a reason to protest.
Sheehan feels that President Barack Obama has maintained much of Bush’s national security strategy.
She says: “I wake up every day feeling like today’s the day to make a difference. I never question the correctness of what I’m doing or the need for it.”
