President George Bush has said he "sympathised" with the mother of a US soldier killed in Iraq but refused to heed her call to pull out the troops.
Speaking from his Texas ranch where Cindy Sheehan has been holding a roadside protest, Mr Bush said withdrawing would be a "mistake".
Ms Sheehan is vowing to remain until she gets to speak to the president about his justification for the war.
Dozens of well-wishers have turned out to join her demonstration.
