Thousands of protesters � many directing their anger squarely at President Barack Obama � marched through the nation's capital Saturday to urge immediate withdrawal of troops from Iraq and Afghanistan.
At least eight people, including activist Cindy Sheehan, were arrested by U.S. Park Police at the end of the march, after laying coffins at a fence outside the White House. Friday marked the seventh anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.
"Arrest that war criminal!" Sheehan shouted outside the White House before her arrest, referring to Obama.
At a rally before the march, Sheehan asked whether "the honeymoon was over with that war criminal in the White House" – an apparent reference to Obama – prompting moderate applause.
"Moderate applause"?!? Certainly she would've gotten a standing ovation if she said that about former President Bush. But then it wasn't too long ago that Cindy Sheehan was the Left's No. 1 heroine....that is, when Bush was in charge. But now that Barry's top dog, Sheehan gets no love from the loons...despite the fact that Barry's foreign policy stances have pretty much been the same as his predecessor. Imagine that.
