This was not supposed to happen, but it did. So the search for "why?" begins. The Washington Post thinks it is because anti-war protesters went "too far".
At a Jan. 27 antiwar rally, some protesters spray-painted the pavement on a Capitol terrace. Others crowned the Lone Sailor statue at the Navy Memorial on Pennsylvania Avenue with a pink tiara that had "Women for Peace" written across it. Word of those incidents ricocheted around the Internet.
But was it a simple case of backlash against a few misguided extremists? That's the media theory so far.
