Those Veterans Chained to the White House Fence
There was a black-out and a white-out Thursday and Friday Sat, 12/18/2010as over a hundred
US veterans opposed to US wars in Afghanistan and elsewhere around the world, and their civilian supporters,
chained and tied themselves to the White House fence during an early snowstorm to say enough is enough.
Washington Police arrested 135 of the protesters, in what is being called the largest mass detention in recent years.
Among those arrested were Ray McGovern, a former CIA analyst who used to provide the president’s daily briefings,
Daniel Ellsberg, who released the government’s Pentagon Papers during the Nixon administration,
and Chris Hedges, former war correspondent for the New York Times.
