Protests Disrupt Condoleezza Rice in San Francisco--Video Footage Available
During the event Rice was asked if she would write another book, she replied that she would like to write a book about the Bush years, Saddam Hussein, Iraq and the intelligence. Rae Abileah, CODEPINK organizer voiced, "The intelligence was wrong, there were no weapons of mass destruction. You lied to the country and lead us into an illegal war. Thousands of soldiers and innocent Iraqis died."
The five CODEPINK women were escorted out of the event, detained and released by hotel security and the San Francisco Police Department.
The women's peace group have made headlines with their ongoing accountability protests. See more coverage from the Rove/CODEPINK book tour here http://www.codepink.org/article.php?id=4941
