What Happened to the Right To Dissent?

Yesterday I watched a good portion of General Petraeus’ “testimony” as well as sat through Ryan Crocker’s droning propagandistic bullshit. I’m sorry – how is it Iraq became our target again? Oh, oh – that’s right . . . . . Saddam Hussein was one bad motherf***. We HAD to take him out.

At any rate, Code Pink code-pink-60-yo-mona_lydia_ap.jpgwas there at the Petraeus/Crocker hearing before the House Armed Services and the Foreign Relations committees. Ike Skelteton had this to say about protestors.

I’m sorry, Mr. Skeleton – do you NOT know about Thomas Paine? How about the likes of John Paul Jones or Patrick- give me liberty or give me death – Henry? How about Samuel Adams?

Nope, the police were busy pulling out 60 year-old women protesting. Here’s a bit of an assessment by Richard Engle, who is in Baghdad currently.

Along with some fact-checking from The Gavel (Speaker of the House) and Democracy Arsenal.

    Who is more dangerous to me, personally? Osama bin Laden or an Executive with unchecked power?
