No connection. The guy was suicidal.
Maybe it was a Throwin' Samoan Woaman.
Maybe it was a Throwin' Samoan Woaman.
Sometimes people throw magic medals over the fence. They're like boomerangs and come back an hit you in the face. What silly dope would do that??
I saw it.
People exercising their American right to be wrong in groups.
What else was I supposed to see?
Yah, I bet most people don't know about a plane crashing into White House on Sept 11...
I got money that it was it was a firecracker. I already know how our wonderful leos treat such dangerous criminals.
I wonder what her DU name is?
Is there a difference?
Peace activist, no doubt.
Machete-wielding woman outside White House

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.
"Was it a "peaceful" liberal, or home-grown muslim convert or just a nut?"
Aren't all they all the same?
So it is a Muslim woman then?
That's what I thought - it sounds Muslim.
A rabid member of the Amish Liberation Front or Peoples Mennonite Republican Militia no doubt
"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!
Somali muslim perhaps? With a machete and all.
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...
I thought ALF only terrorized cats.
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?
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.
Well, thank you for that information.
See post #129
Probably. Call out the ATF(&E) Panic Reaction Force!
Sounds like fun had by all, eh? sheesh
