Cindy Sheehan: "For what noble cause did my son die?"

George B. Walker: "Our country made a grave mistake. Fact is, Mrs. Sheehan, your son and a bunch of other young people died in vain. I'm truly sorry."

Cindy Sheehan: "Excuse me?"

George B. Walker: "I'm sorry."

Cindy Sheehan: (Long pause) "W-why did we invade Iraq?"

George B. Walker: "To insure the increased wealth of my friends, I guess. . . . I know, I suck. It was a bad idea."

(A breeze picks up. The windmill by the bunk house creaks. A small horned toad hops onto a cow turd.)

Cindy Sheehan: "Well . . . What are you going to do about it now?"

George B. Walker: "Frankly, ma'am, I don't know. It's a real conundrum."
