Interview with Cindy Sheehan, peace activist and mother of slain U.S Army specialist Casey Sheehan, conducted by Scott Harris

The "official" U.S. war and occupation of Iraq came to a close last week, with the last American combat troops crossing the border into Kuwait on Dec. 18. At least 4,485 members of the U.S. military have died in the Iraq war that was launched by President George W. Bush in March 2003. More than 32,000 U.S. servicemen and women have been wounded in hostile action, during the course of the nine years of war. Estimates of the number of Iraqis killed during the war range from 100,000 to over 1 million. Despite the end of America’s combat mission in Iraq, the U.S. continues to operate the largest embassy in the world in Baghdad, maintaining a staff of more than 15,000 and 5,000 private security guards.
