irony on the march

From a Washington Post article on a recent speaking engagement by Condoleeza Rice:

Then, about five minutes into the secretary’s 30-minute speech, three audience members donned black hooded robes and stood with their arms outstretched, referencing the infamous photos of detainees abused by U.S. military police at Iraq’s Abu Ghraib prison. Chanting “Stop the torture, stop the killing, U.S. out of Iraq,” they were quickly ushered out by a police SWAT team, as the audience cheered and applauded.

“It’s a wonderful thing that people are able to speak their minds in our democracy,” Rice responded. “In Baghdad, Kabul and soon in Beirut, they, too, will be able to speak their minds.”
