Cindy Sheehan's son Casey was a conscientious objector who nevertheless joined the US Army in a non-combatant role in the motor pool. He was ordered and then forced into combat against his will, and was killed in action. She attracted international attention in August 2005 for her extended demonstration at a camp outside President George W. Bush's Texas ranch, garnering her both support and criticism.

In May 2007, Sheehan officially ended her involvement as an anti-war activist, saying "I am going to go home and be a mother to my surviving children and try to regain some of what I have lost." However, on July 23, 2007, after Bush's reduction of the sentence of Scooter Libby, Sheehan announced that she plans to challenge Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi in a congressional election as an Independent because Pelosi failed to introduce articles of impeachment against Bush.
