Chalk up another appearance by Nancy Mancias of CodePink the womens group opposed to the United States involvement in wars. She stood as Obama was speaking about killing Osama bin Laden and began protesting the administrations use of drone attacks.
With her was another veteran CodePinker, Janine Boneparth, another veteran protester at Obama and political events.
Drone attacks kill innocent civilians! There is no precision in drone attacks! Mancias yelled as San Francisco police officers dragged her from the auditorium.

I dunno. (Is that a trick question?)
Two of them. I seem to remember quite a few more of them protesting when Bush was in charge.
