Sheehan argues with man during visit to Alabama

MONTGOMERY (AP) — Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan got into an argument with a man Thursday outside the Alabama State Capitol.

The visit to Montgomery was part of Sheehan's 17-city "Summer of Love '07" protest tour that began Tuesday at President Bush's Crawford, Texas, ranch. Footage from Montgomery's WSFA-TV shows a man yelling at Sheehan as she walked away after briefly speaking to reporters.

"What happens to Iraq after we leave?" the man asked repeatedly.

Sheehan initially continued to walk away but then turned back to say something.

The man, who identified himself on camera as Chris Vucovich, kept repeating his question as she tried to speak.

Sheehan then walked back until she was standing right in front of Vucovich and asked, "Are you going to be quiet so I can answer?"

He told her to go ahead.

"How many Iraqi people in Iraq have you talked to?" she asked.

When Vucovich didn't immediately answer, she continued, "Zero. The people of Iraq want us out."

The two then both began speaking at once until Sheehan turned around and walked away.
