New video shows Code Pink organizer Medea Benjamin being escorted out by Secret Service out of the room where President Barack Obama was delivering a speech on national security, Guantanamo Bay, and American drone policy. After repeatedly interrupting the president, Obama stopped and allowed Benjamin to scream as she was dragged out of the auditorium by the authorities.
“Can you tell the Muslim people their lives are a precious as our lives,” Benjamin screamed. “Can you take the drones out of the hands of the CIA?”
“Can you stop the signature strikes that are killing people on the basis of suspicious activities?” She continued. “Will you apologize to the thousands of Muslims that you have killed? Will you compensate the innocent family victims?”
“That will make us safer,” she concluded.
