Code Pink Protestors Disrupt Karl Rove's Book Signing Event

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- Anti-war protesters have heckled former White House political adviser Karl Rove off the stage at his book signing in Beverly Hills.

About 100 Rove supporters watched Monday as Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans walked toward him with handcuffs, calling him a war criminal and saying she was making a citizen's arrest.

Ten protesters in all repeatedly interrupted Rove's talk at the Saban Theatre as he promoted his memoir, "Courage and Consequence: My Life As a Conservative in the Fight."

Rove says the allegation that the Bush administration lied about weapons of mass destruction "is a pernicious political attack launched by cynical and hypocritical individuals."

There were no arrests.

    With soooo much evidence regarding Muslim terrorists who Hate the US and Israel, how can you dumb bunnies sit there and question that Bush staged 911. Carl Rowe does represent truth, way more truth than the sick lying liberals in this world who spread and believe lies just to create division among the US. These terrorists have hated us for decades and finally because of Clinton's neglectful ways they worked their way into our system to carry out 911. Remember Bush was fairly new on the scene before 911 happened. It's the liberals fault why we're in the shape we're in. End of discussion.

    Here is one article from the Defense Department stating that in fact there were WMD's discovered in Iraq. Saddam also had mobile chemical labs, that were never found, gee, I wonder where they went? Hint for you idiots, they were mobile. Justin, none of the anti-Bush morons here know what is and what isnt the truth. I have also seen the WMD's in Iraq and as you stated, it is the ones who were not there that are saying they did not exist. Justin, thank you for your service. It is because of the men and women in uniform that Americans have the right to be able to post their comments here, they just take alot more for granted because they have never had to fight for it. http://www.defense.gov/news/newsarticle.aspx?id=15918

    All of you flag waving, soldier worshipping fools have not changed. Deal with it, Justin. Not all of us wrap ourselves in the flag and worship you and your type.

    I find it extremely irresponsible and reckless for people who were NOT in Iraq to claim there were no WMD's....I was there, I was attacked with WMD's that were scavenged from Saddam's arsenal, and I also destroyed caches of WMD's manufactured and stored by Saddam's administration. The most disrespectful thing anyone can do to a veteran is to tell them what is going on overseas when he/she has never been there. If you don't know what you are talking about, don't open your mouth. Rather than simply hurling insults, why is it that those opposed never want to debate substance? Instead, they sit back and sling mud covered insult after insult, instead of attacking the issue itself. After 8 years in service to this nation, it pains me to see people taking advantage of the first amendment rights that my and other's service protected. Thankfully, idotes weed themselves out. By the way, idote is the greek root of idiot, defined as an uniformed person.

    BushSnakeOil: Koolaid is on sale at the pig this week..try cherry, but watch you sugar level...it shows. Vance and Fed Up, thanks, these idiots who live in denial don't pay attention to facts and truth. They live by their George Soros ideology and not by anything else. The truth, the facts, all denial. The media is in bed with the dems now, very clear since they cannot air the truth without Soros or Obama approval. This is why they don't like Fox News or anybody outside of their Polit Burea. They even have posters to come to WITN just to post their teachings. Lavon is a good example, he claims to be black, yet he is not, he didn't even know MLK was a republican! Yet he/she posts nonsense going after republicans. Well, I defend republicans who are honest,I go after them if they lied. However, with all the lies and corruption in the dem party,it keeps me busy going after them. Lavon, nice house,nobody home!He posts lots of Pelosi, ya know, BS.He stepped in it,can't get it off his shoe.
