On the evening of Sept. 16, 2009, a protest action was staged at Goucher College in Towson, MD, just north of Baltimore City, with respect to the appearance of Karl Rove on campus, as a guest speaker. Rove, aka "Dubya's Brain," was a senior advisor, (2001-07), to then President, George W. Bush. He is suspected of participating in a White House-based cabal, (WHIG), which helped to launch the immoral and illegal Iraq War. Just as Rove was being introduced, at least three activists stood up in the audience and denounced him for his serial wrong doings. They were quickly escorted out of the auditorium by the police and instructed not to return. As far as this observer knows, the police took down their names, but the protesters were not arrested. According to a press release of the ANSWER Coalition, "Rove should be on trial," for not only his role in pushing the Iraq War, but for also implementing "a system of torture and secret prisons; (for) racial and religious profiling; and for massive spying on the people in this country."

For more information on Rove and the repeated attempts by citizen activists to bring him to the Bar of Justice, go to: http://www.pephost.org/site/R?i=gfJlf9xdSXr1CkMAhBycKQ

1. Karl Rove has set so much unsavory precedent, yet he and similar go forth seemingly unscathed.
