Protester Desiree Farooz confronts Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in a photograph taken today by Charles Dharapak of the Associated Press.
Rice was preparing to testify before the House Foreign Affairs Committee when she encountered Farooz inside the hearing room. Farooz had painted her hands red, apparently to symbolize her group's claim that members of President Bush's cabinet have blood on their hands because of the way they've waged war in Iraq.
A round of applause to Desiree Farooz for having the guts to stand up to the Bush Administration. We are not afraid of being politically minded AND active. We encourage everyone to speak up for their beliefs.
