LANGLEY, Virginia — A group led by anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan has protested near the CIA's headquarters and former Vice President Dick Cheney's home in northern Virginia.
They were protesting the use of unmanned drone aircraft to attack al-Qaida and Taliban targets.
The group of about 70 people rallied alongside a highway near the CIA compound Saturday. About half then marched to Cheney's nearby street and stayed for 20 minutes. Police kept them from going down his street.
Does this seem senseless to you? Shouldn't she be protested outside the White House, since President Obama is the one ordering the surge in Afghanistan?

I have No idea why she is protesting outside Dick's house, unless she has a crush on him, he no longer has any sya in what goes on

You REALLY think in a Dem controlled Hose, Senate, AND white house that has Pelosi and Reid at the helm, that Chaney would have ANY wiggle room? I would LOVE to hear how you figure THAT. PLEASE show me.

It is naive to think that Cheney has any kind of pull but his voice. Cindy Sheehan isn't exactly the brain child of good decisions, is she? She continues to protest everyone but the current commander in chief. I guess we know who she gives a pass to.
And by the way, I love Dick Cheney. The man knows how to make a decision. That is one skill our current president could surely use. It isn't likely since he is so incredibly inexperienced.

I doubt very much that PRESIDENT OBAMA is taking advice from one of the most despised Vice Presidents in history. Cheney's political clout is pretty thin.
We have a Democratic controlled President, Congress and Senate. They are in charge of the war now. Cindy should be protesting Reid's and Pelosi's houses, in addition to White House.
