Since the sixth anniversary of the beginning of the Iraq War was the other day, ANSWER and it’s assorted affiliates of beggars, drama queens and ne’er-do-wells picked today out of the air to hold their March on the Pentagon.
Brian Becker, the national coordinator for ANSWER said it’s important because it’s the first anti-war protest in the Post-Bush Era. So here’s the photos

Uncle Jimbo has his interviews with the Code Pink girls up at Blackfive and Ace of Spades. I forgot to mention that Marooned in Marin was there, too, and he has photos up. It’s beginning to look like there are more conservative bloggers at these things than protesters.
Folks are asking for crowd estimates – if ANSWER says more that 3,000 people were there, they’re nuts.
