Code Pink Makes Condi Rice See Red

Five members of the anti-war group Code Pink took their our cause to another level when they confronted Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice at a congressional hearing.

From Reuters:

An anti-war protester waved blood-colored hands in U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s face at a congressional hearing on Wednesday and shouted “war criminal!”, but was pushed away and detained by police.

“The blood of millions of Iraqis is on your hands!” yelled the protester, Desiree Anita Ali-Fairooz of the Code Pink organization which often disrupts hearings on Capitol Hill with protests against the Iraq war.

Rice, an architect of President George W. Bush’s Iraq policy, appeared unfazed by the incident, which occurred when she entered a House of Representatives meeting room to testify at a hearing on U.S. Middle East policy.

“Out!,” shouted the chairman of the Foreign Relations committee, Rep. Tom Lantos, as plain-clothes security men and police hustled the woman away. The California Democrat also ordered the removal of several other Code Pink activists.

Capitol Police said later five people were arrested, including Ali-Fairooz, who was charged with disorderly conduct and assault on a police officer.

She was also charged with defacing government property for smearing the red paint from her hands on the hallway wall outside the hearing room. The other four protesters faced disorderly conduct charges.

Watch the video and notice how after the protesters are hauled off by the Capitol Hill police good old Condi acts as though nothing strange had occurred. Is there nothing that will get through to people in the Bush administration that the majority Americans do not support the Iraq war and want our troops to come home?

    Too bad Al-Fairooz has to stand alone with a few. If people had more courage in this country there would be a few million people outside the doors. The poor and oppressed remain as they are while the middle class fights to stay afloat against the odds of bad schools, bad environment, bad health care, and poor leadership.

    This administration is a freak show, and they need to leave ASAP – our future has been compromised by this sick and evil administration.
