PROTEST AT THE FRENCH EMBASSY: But in a stunning display of political ineptitude, “antiwar” marchers showed up to counterdemonstrate:
Midway through the rally, nearly 15 members of Georgetown Peace Action and College Democrats arrived for a counter-protest, supporting France’s current dissention with a possible U.S.-led coalition to oust Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.
The peace movement may survive being called objectively pro-Saddam. But subjectively pro-French? Political suicide.
