I saw it.

People exercising their American right to be wrong in groups.

What else was I supposed to see?

Instead of that gibberish, how about they wanted her alive to answer questions? Is she acting alone? Where did she get the explosives? Who does she know? I bet she's being sweated by the SS now.

Was it a "peaceful" liberal, or home-grown muslim convert or just a nut?

Is there a difference?

Machete-wielding woman outside White House

Sunday, August 13, 2006; Posted: 4:30 p.m. EDT (20:30 GMT)

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A 32-year-old woman wielding a machete was arrested Sunday outside the White House, the Secret Service said.

Spokeswoman Kim Bruce said Ashwak Saleh was taken into custody and charged with possession of a prohibited weapon after she displayed a 13-inch machete on the sidewalk outside the White House.

Saleh was arrested at 2:20 p.m. and taken to Washington Metro Police Department 3rd district for processing.

Witnesses said Saleh was sitting on the sidewalk when she pulled the machete out of a leather sleeve and began sharpening it on the edge of the sidewalk.

The witnesses said passersby then alerted Secret Service officers, one of whom approached the woman and told her to "Drop the blade."

To that, Saleh said, "What are you going to do -- shoot me?"

The witnesses said the officer repeated his command, then took Saleh into custody when she wouldn't comply.

"A 32-year-old woman wielding a machete"

Machete = Machetero, the now believed to be dormant or dead Puerto Rican terrorist group?

So you're ok with people supporting groups who want us and Israelis dead. OK. You're ok with one of them exercising their American right to throw an explosive at the WH. OK.
I now have a better understanding of you.

Apparently you don't at all, which is becoming less surprising.

You stopped reading after seeing what you wanted to see.

Fix your reading comprehension before you start badmouthing people you don't know.

Maybe you want to change our US Constitution to not provide for religious freedom, but you would run into a large group of people who would smack you silly first.

As long as they are peaceful, they have a right to assemble and espouse stupidity, just like you have a right to make stupid assumptions after only reading half of my statement.

There was nothing in my post that indicated support for what they were saying in anyway, shape or form.

Next thing you know, you'll be smashing down the doors of my church and telling us that we cannot practice our faith?

Well, I wonder which was it...an explosive or a machete??

Did you see the article above that says she displayed a machete?

Nothing about "throwing an explosive".

Good grief. What are the facts??

Not demanding them from YOU, just showing my frustration with this story!

There was that Canadian Muslim extremist group recently that reportedly planned to enter the Parliament in Canada, grab the Prime Minister and behead him. This freak might be showing that she has the same intent toward our President, she just can't get close enough...

Dear Lord, how horrible. Damn muslims, we're losing our freedoms because of their suicidal rages in wanting to take as many infidels with them as they can.

Getting a little dramatic and over reacting, aren't you?
Show me where I bad mouthed you.
My posting had nothing to do with the Constitution and/or religion.
I stand by my last post to you and you are reaching way out to defend your position - including personal attack. It always comes down to that with you people, doesn't it?
A waste.

Hi tx - good question - was wondering the same but then I realize that our press probably couldn't decide which would make the best headline. Machete or small explosive. :o)
I saw the film clip of them arresting a woman as described in this thread but I didn't hear anything about a machete until I saw kevl's post. Ping me if you ever hear the straight of it. :o)

My understanding is there were two women arrested in separate incidents.

Probably both of them are regulars at DU.

Small Explosive Device = Firecracker?

Probably. Call out the ATF(&E) Panic Reaction Force!
