Uh, no. Security said they didn't want her doing anything disruptive, and when she refused to hand over the letter, she became disruptive and was removed.

Not's not what happened.

And according to you not wanting to hand over a letter leads to being disruptive -interesting.

We're losing our freedoms.

Perhaps they would have given it back to her afterward. They were probably concerned she would break security protocol to give it to him, so without the letter she'd have no reason to jump the barrier.

Doesn't seem to me from the video that she was mistreated at all.

Right. What freedom did she lose here? The freedom to walk up to the President of the United States and hand him a letter?

Such a tragedy.

Don't even tell me this is related to freedom of the press, either. She still has every freedom to publish a column with the exact contents of the letter and more, without censorship.

And without editing and proofreading, as it seems.

We were, while Bush was in office. We are beginning a process of re-gaining them thanks to the new president. Glad I could share the good news with you.
