Does she need better security?

http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/pol...f=mpvideosview

Recently Condi Rice was confronted by a war protester. The protester was able to get into Condi's face for 3-4 seconds.

Where was her security, do you think cabinet members should have better protection then was afforded Secretary Rice in this circumstance?



"Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, center, is confronted by CodePink member Desiree Anita Ali-Fairooz, her hands painted red, as Rep. Tom Lantos, D-Calif., right, Chairman of the House Foreign Relations Committee, right, looks on before Rice testified regarding US policy in the Middle East where she spoke about Iraq, Iran, and the Israel Palestinian conflict on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2007."





This lady could of harmed the Secretary of State, I think govt. officials, cabinet members and the like should have much better security.

What say you?

Sure, it's free speech, but yes, she should have security.

Yes, she needs better security.

I don't really even think it's a question. Free speech is one thing, this is another.

The protester looks possessed and unstable.



At least Tom Lantos did something.

There is some hope left in the universe.

It's a no brainer.

Speaking soley for myself, I may disagree with her views, but it's not as if I want her harmed.

I disapprove of this particular tactic of drawing attention to Anglo-American war crimes in Iraq. Having said that, can you provide any actual evidence of intention to cause harm?

I don't think it's so much intention to cause harm as that she was able to get close enough that if she was intent on harming Ms. Rice she easily could have.

It can't be established that she was out to harm Condi, and that isn't the point of the thread; that she was able to breech security or lack thereof -is the topic at hand.

Her boss would have to sign an executive order authorizing the secret service to protect her

And I don't think she looks "possessed and unstable" ... or do you think all anti-war protestors look "possessed and unstable".
