Rice's Wednesday Heckler

I just saw the rerun of Wednesday's Senate hearings with SecState Rice. A woman stood up and heckled the hearings shooting "No War in Syria" and it turns out she was a disgruntled State Employee and Army LTC.

She wasn't hustled out by any means. She paused to pick up her purse. She started leaving before the police got to her. I think escorted would have been more apt description then hustle.

I hope we have plan for Syria, includig force if need be.
Syria has a huge stock of chem weapons.Syria, not a signatory to either the CWC or the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT), and has not ratified BWC began developing chemical weapons in 1973 prior to the Yom Kipper war when the Egyptian government reportedly gave Syria artillery shells capable of delivering chemical weapons. Since then Syria has developed a robust chemical weapons program, perhaps one of the most advanced in the Middle East, and a variety of delivery methods. The country is still very depending on outside assistance in procuring important precursor chemicals and equipment.
