That was Jane Harman of Newsweek trying to quash Medea Benjamin’s stellar soliloquy against drones
Last week Medea Benjamin wrote about confronting John Brennan on drones at the Wilson Center. I only watched the video today, and was awed by Benjamin's bravery. Watch her being frogmarched from the hall and with perfect timing proclaiming exit lines that would make Shakespeare proud...

Clearly, just another mega-wealthy, crony State-enriched "liberal" Zionist wolf in sheep's clothing.
