Cindy Sheehan: Gore Vidal. Presente! – OpEd


The few times I had a chance to visit Gore in his Hollywood Hills home, or chat with him on the phone were very special times for me of which I will treasure forever.

Gore was the most interesting man alive and he was a true renaissance intellectual whose voice was desperately needed to counteract the propaganda of the US Empire.

I will miss him on a personal level and we lost a true international treasure on July 31, 2012.

In July of 2009, I had a chance to interview him and we are running this classic Cindy Sheehan’s Soapbox with Gore.

Cindy Sheehan

Cindy Sheehan is an American anti-war activist whose son, Specialist Casey Sheehan, was killed during his service in the Iraq War by the Mehdi Army on April 4, 2004. She attracted national and international media attention in August 2005 for her extended anti-war protest at a makeshift camp outside President George W. Bush's Texas ranch — a stand which drew both passionate support and angry criticism. More of her writings can be found at Cindy Sheehan's Soapbox: Writing from the Emprire.
