Will DiNovi reports on the first anti-war protest of the Obama era:

“It doesn’t look like Obama is changing anything,” said Kyle Quigley, an Iraq War veteran who had traveled from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, to attend the rally. The president’s decision to delay withdrawal from Iraq by three months is a sign, Quigley argued, of Obama’s “backsliding” on his campaign promise to end the war. Quigley’s frustration with the president was shared by many of the anti-war activists at the rally, which was sponsored by the group Act Now To Stop War and End Racism [(ANSWER)].

We know how the Left tends to lump together all their pet passions, but considering the ethnicity of the commander-in-chief, ANSWER might have a hard time justifying the second half of its mission.
