WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama was interrupted three times by a woman who shouted about drones and detainees in Cuba as he delivered a speech on national security.

The woman was identified as Medea Benjamin from the anti-war group Code Pink. Benjamin yelled from behind a bank of cameras before security removed her from the hall at National Defense University in Washington.

I smell a setup.

Ubama controls everything. This didn't happen accidentally.

It might have been humorous to watch if she had been wearing her pink vagina costume. It’s probably been years since O has seen one of those. That would have offended him.

OMGosh . . . I thought Code Pink and the co-horts had DIED. They are still ALIVE. Where the hell have they been the past 4 1/2 years? On vacation? In Hawaii? I thought they had all but dried up and died since GWB left office. s/

I’m sure the MSM will turn Medea Benjamin into a media hero just like they did for Cindy Sheehan . . . . . . .

I heard her on the broadcast of the speech. I believe this was a “setup” to make the anti-war protestors feel vindicated for not protested Obama for 4.5 years

The vagina is an internal bodily part. Nobody except gynecological surgeons or diagnostic technicians doing laparoscopy see one.

I thought from the very first second that she was a plant. Sort of like the IRS using a plant to break their targeting of conservative groups.

I agree. If anyone with klan pink has the prezzy’s ear its Benjamin. She’s worked pretty closely with Bernadine Dorhn in harassing Israel.

If a Tea Partier did this he’d be in jail right now, if not dead from SS fire.

But she isn’t because it was staged. She probably will get her bag of cash tomorrow.

She is not in jail and she is soliciting interviews....

Obviously, Obama (and Secret Service?) approves: Here's tweet '2 hours ago'

"medeabenjamin Thanks for the support. Call Alli to schedule interviews: 860 575 5692. Tell @BarackObama: Close #Guantanamo and stop the killer #drones!

If that National Defense University is a military facility you’d be required to produce a military I.D. or Pass to get in there.

As someone has said earlier I smell a something and it really stinks.This Medea Benjamin is able to get into a Facility and Just happens to create a big enough distraction to get the media’s eyes off what really counts.His Criminal wrongdoing.

The Administration had to provide the documents and the authorization for Ms.Benjamin to gain access to that facility so they were well prepared for that disturbance because they were looking forward to it.

As the late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan would say, “Boob bait for the bubbas.” The day that shrew protests Obama “for real” is the day I’ll volunteer for a root canal without Novocaine.

I wonder if Holder is going to go after the emails of the "journalists" that keep supplying Miss Pinkie with credentials (over and over ad nauseum).....you KNOW the SS recognizes her by sight now.

.........oh, it's Jay Carney that slips her the Carte Blanche Disruptor Badge??

...That's why it says to address all concerns to the WH.

She’s code pink - Medea something-or-other. I remember seeing her in Washington a few years ago.

It wasn’t a heckle as much as a show of support.
