First let me preface this with the disclaimer that I was not inside the convention center, this afternoon. However, a close relative was present during Condi's speech and this is their report of the events.
As the room filled at the last minute before Condi's remarks, approximately 30 people with large Kerry buttons entered the lunch room. During her remarks two people moved about the room with Anti-Bush banners, they are members of the World Affairs Council, and thus apparently, entitled to be present. Two people immediately upon finishing eating began shouting at Condi, "You Lied" "Bush Lied." They weren't even asking questions!
The council is a nonpartisan group and she was repeatedly asked tough questions by the group about the nonexistent WMD's. Her responses were vague acknowledgements that there were unfortunate miscalculations and bad intelligence. (my comments, BULL....SHIT!!, ok, i feel better now) At no time did anyone attempt to silence those who asked provocative questions.
Anyway, it was nice to hear that Condi did not waltz in, and leave with a free pass.
Also if you were at the protest, KOIN gave A LOT of coverage to the protest Not too much sound but very good visuals - LOTS OF P I N K - and those crazy kids with the Terror Twister Game, that was very cool!!!! Thanks to all for their activism.
