Cindy Sheehan, anti-war campaigner
Her eldest son Casey was an American soldier killed in action in Iraq in 2004.
Rather than grieve privately she became a passionate critic of the war in Iraq and American foreign policy in general.
But her refusal to condemn those who killed her son, and her assertion that George Bush is the world's number one terrorist, has gained her as many critics as supporters...including members of her own family, who have publicly distanced themselves from her.
