Sick to My Stomach

A minister wearing a button stating: "I love the Iraqi people" is:

(a) Denied entrance to the Petraeus Hearing by Capitol Police.
(b) Is gang tackled by six of the cops; they slam the minister, who is not yet under arrest, to the hard floor which...
(c) ...breaks his leg.
(d) The minister is then arrested for "assaulting a police officer." I guess as he was slammed to the floor, his fractured leg grazed another cop.

What was it we were trying to establish in Iraq exactly?

A guy wearing a button promoting love has his leg broken. A minister who was honorably discharged from the Air Force Reserve as a lieutenant in August can't enter a room to witness testimony? I think we've taken the whole Christian Nation thing a bit too far if we're snapping legs of those who preach love. People will start to think we're behaving like the Roman Empire....
