Unable to stay away from the television cameras for longer than five minutes, anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan and her Code Pinko friends were arrested on national television today.
(Here is the arresting Cindy Sheehan earlier this year.)
While General David Petraeus was delivering good news that America will be able to draw down our forces and bring some of our troops home in Victory.
Ms. Sheehan believes we should leave immediately. And cause the death of millions in Iraq...making the death of her heroic son Casey meaningless.

|Cindy Sheehan arrested at Petraeus hearing|
|September 10, 2007|
|Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan was arrested Monday in or near the hearing room where General David Petraeus and U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker are testifying on the situation in Iraq, according to the U.S. Capitol Police.
Four anti-war protesters were arrested for disorderly conduct. One of them, who was not named, is being taken to George Washington Hospital “due to complaint of injury” is also charged with assault on a police officer.
According to the information from the Capitol Police, Sheehan and the other three were shouting in a hallway.
Sheehan was the face of the anti-war movement before saying in May of this year that she would “retire” from the cause. Shortly thereafter, she announced that she would seek the congressional seat of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
