It's Called Stalking

The sad story of a mother in despair:

The mother of a US soldier killed in Iraq warned she would camp outside the White House next month if US President George W. Bush refuses to meet with her here at his ranch.

"I don't understand why he cannot spend ten minutes of his time to talk to somebody whose life he has devastated," said Cindy Sheehan, 48, who has been camped out about a kilometer from the gates of Bush's ranch since Saturday.

"I want Bush to stop using my son's sacrifice to justify the killing," she told reporters, insisting that "he needs to bring the troops home now."
President Bush already spoke with Mrs. Sheehan, in private, which is pretty remarkable considering he was never obligated to, and it must take tough skin to confront a person accusing you of murdering their child.

Bush has already stated an immediate withdrawal is not an option so any further meetings between the two will likely be unproductive.
