4. Welcome to DU, Great Harry...
It must have been tough for this mother to see that. However, it received national/international attention.

Let's see how the judge rules on that. Are are the people motivated to make it go away? Do they want to make example of civil disobedience?

What about the liars who started invasion and occupation after a action that allowed the getaway of OBL?

I wonder why protesting and expecting an answer would have violated the law.

Bring it on, judge and jury. WE have to answer for our actions, or we are NOT citizens, I say.

7. Gee, I thought Tom Harkin was a Democrat.
Oh that's right, there's no difference at all any more between the two parties.
