  •  Yes, she supported the war in Iraq. (0+ / 0-)

    I saw footage of her at the pro-war rally (holding a pro-war sign with Bingham's photo) on the local news.

    •  She also (0+ / 0-)

      testified against the death penalty at the Zacarias Moussaoui trial. Does that make her pro-war, anti-death?  

      You may have seen her at "the pro-war rally," (I didn't know there was only one) but my point is that that doesn't square with my personal experience of Alice. Kerry "supported the war in Iraq", but I still voted for him.

      To say that she supported the war in Iraq, ergo, her dead son probably would have also is a bit of a broad brush statement, IMHO.

      •  I humbly suggest seeing if you can find (0+ / 0-)

        some footage of local news from the time, as well as interviews, if possible. I'm just one person, but this is what I remember. I remember feeling disappointed by the irony of her supporting an administration that relies on gay-bashing policies.

        I can tell that you feel attached to her, and want to defend her -- fine -- but it's good to know the whole story, the good and the bad, when making a documentary.

        Best of luck with the project.
