    Anti-war protesters arrested near White House

    News from The Associated Press

    Anti-war protesters arrested near White House

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- More than 100 anti-war protesters, including the man who leaked the Pentagon Papers, were arrested outside the White House in demonstrations marking the eighth anniversary of the U.S.-led war in Iraq.

    The protesters, some shouting anti-war slogans and singing "We Shall Not Be Moved," were arrested Saturday after ignoring orders to move away from the gates of the White House. The demonstrators cheered loudly as Daniel Ellsberg, the former military analyst who in 1971 leaked the Pentagon's secret history of the Vietnam War that was later published in major newspapers, was arrested and led away by police.

    In New York City, about 80 protesters gathered near the U.S. military recruiting center in Times Square, chanting "No to war" and carrying banners that read, "I am not paying for war" and "Butter not guns."

    Similar protests marking the start of the Iraq war also were organized Saturday in San Francisco, Chicago and other cities.

    In California, hundreds of people marched in downtown San Francisco. Hundreds more, including students from more than 40 high schools and community colleges, marched in Los Angeles in protest of the U.S. presence in Iraq, organizers and police said.

    Some used the rallies to draw attention to the new military action in Libya.

    .....and to think it was only a couple of years ago......they were carrying Obama signs.

    And now they protest at The Kenyan Tyrant's doorstep.......

    Don't be fooled by anyone these people were not arrested for protesting.

    As is made clear in the story they were arrested Saturday after ignoring orders to move away from the gates of the White House.

    If you are going to protest you still have yo listen to authorities.

    I find it funny they are protesting attempts to save the lives of Rebels fighting for freedom from control of a tyrant.

    Typical wackos.

    All 100 of them? Really? Golly! that is news!

    Or is it that you are inferring the passions 100 people apply to anyone and everyone who ever carried an Obama sign?

    Personally, in this day and age of the party loyalist... it's refreshing to see a party criticized by it's own members... much more honest than the idiot my party right or wrong, and even when wrong, we're always right lack of mentality...

    It's funny how the world works. Take, for instance, those idiot conservatives who so vehemently supported the Iraqi war and praised Bush for such a manuever, and who now bastardize our Commander in Chief for doing something that they could actually get behind. Throw in a dash of birther nonsense, a hatred of all things liberal, and KABLAM! An anti-Obama Libyan war thread appears!

    Just curious. To which idiot conservatives are you referring. I have watched several newcasts throughout the day and all the conservatives I've seen interviewed approve of this action. Some have expressed that it would have been better if done earlier but I have not heard any say the USA should not have joined the fight.

    Would it be that it is you that is the partisian hack?

    After almost a decade of criticizing Bush and the Iraq War......the removal of Sadam Hussein--Murderer of over 1,000,000 Iraqis.......

    .......are Democrats going to get behind Barack Petroleum's War for Lybian Oil?

    ......pro-Obama or anti-Obama.......the slap of irony stings.

    Re: Anti-war protesters arrested near White House

    You've got to admit it's a little ironic these protesters being arrested by this administration. So now will the left admit that sometimes a president has to do unpopular things for the sake of national security?

    Not that Libya has anything to do with our national security considering Gaddafi has been working just fine with the west.

    I was reading the Wikipedia article on human rights in Libya. It's bad. The population is under surveilance and dissent is not encouraged. The law is arbitrary and justice non-existent. Gaddafi has tried to justify his actions against the rebels to Obama by saying the rebels are al Quaida. I wonder how he justifies his gulag style governance? How do any of the thugs? Are the citizens so dangerous?

    Human rights in Libya - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
