Father of Fallen Soldier Speaks -- Offers Another View

Like Cindy Sheehan, Ronald Griffin lost a son in Iraq. But he takes a position diametrically opposed to hers on the war and the president in today's WSJ.

He comments on NY Times Columnist Maureen Dowd's statement that the parents of fallen soldiers have "absolute moral authority" on the subject of the war, asking how that can be true since not all parents of fallen sons and daughters agree.

It's worth reading in its entirety.

It's an important reminder that while Cindy Sheehan lost a son in Iraq, she is not the only one who has, and she does not -- as the media and her friends have portrayed -- speak for them all. In fact, she may not speak for most of them.
