How to Meet and Greet a War Criminal.

It actually gives me some faith that there are Americans who react this way when they see Donald Rumsfeld in public.

O'Reilly thinks she could have made her point with more dignity but I think she greeted him exactly as a war criminal should be greeted.

"You can make your point in a much more dignified manner."Instead of talking to the lady who doesnt have a media giant to spread her message, maybe he ought to walk down the hall and have a little word with Glen Beck.

Amen, Dave. It's really funny to have these ignorant, uncivilised morons lecture other people on "dignity".

This particular kind of protest does strike me as a bit counterproductive. She didn't convince anyone of anything, she was just irritating and polarizing.

There comes a point where rather than exercising free speech, she is preventing it.

I'm not sure that there's any way to convince anyone of anything at this point SP. We all know the facts. We all know what these people authorised and carried out.

And yet the Republicans continue to insist that they did nothing wrong and that, even if it was wrong, it worked.

The US currently has war criminals walking about as if they did nothing wrong. Rumsfeld, on this occasion, is attending some public event as if he has nothing to hide.

This woman has reacted very strongly in objection to his presence.

It wouldn't be my reaction to seeing him, but, short of the Obama administration actually having the balls to prosecute these people, I found it strangely reassuring that some Americans still have the kind of strong sense of right and wrong that their political class appear to lack.
