A "war protester" who appears to be affiliated with Code Pink charged toward Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice at a hearing in the House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing room. The New York Post calls it an "attack" but it is not clear whether physical contact was made. It certainly was aggressive and illegal, however. That protester and several other Code Pink people were then forcibly ejected from the room.
October 24, 2007 — An anti-war protestor, whose hands were painted red to look like blood, stormed up to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as she arrived to testify on Capitol Hill this morning, shouting "war criminal" before being hauled away by bodyguards.
Guards were as gentle as possible given the resistance of the protesters and the crowded conditions of the room. But it is only a matter of time until someone is seriously injured as a result of this kind of behavior. The Post has the video of the entire incident so you can judge for yourself. But consider for a moment the treatment of the Code Pink idiots. Then recall the actions of the military junta in Burma when dealing with protests that were actually less confrontational. How long would the Code Pink people survive in a real police state?
