    WASHINGTON (AP) — Thousands of protesters — many directing their anger squarely at President Barack Obama — marched through the nation's capital Saturday to urge immediate withdrawal of troops from Iraq and Afghanistan.

    At least eight people, including activist Cindy Sheehan, were arrested by U.S. Park Police at the end of the march, after laying coffins at a fence outside the White House. Friday marked the seventh anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.

    "Arrest that war criminal!" Sheehan shouted outside the White House before her arrest, referring to Obama.

    At a rally before the march, Sheehan asked whether "the honeymoon was over with that war criminal in the White House" — an apparent reference to Obama — prompting moderate applause.

    Guess all the Bush haters are busy high-fiving their health care bill.

    I guess Cindy Sheehan has suddenly become a hero in the eyes of Republicans.

    Shouldn't you be busy trying to demonize Cindy Sheehan? Now all of a sudden she's a right wing hero to some of you. :lol:

    I feel sorry for her. She is a mother who lost a son in combat and cannot deal with it. Far be it from me to criticize her actions no matter how outrageous her comments or deeds.

    Wait a minute....a few months ago, it was pointed out that the anti-war protesters and Cindy Sheehan had disappeared, meaning they were all about bashing Bush and really didn't care about ending the war.
