  • CODEPINKED: Cotton at Foreign Policy Initiative event this morning.

Tom Cotton was the keynote speaker today at an event held by the Foreign Policy Initiative, the neocon think tank founded by Cotton cheerleaders Bill Kristol and Robert Kagan, called (of course) "Will Congress provide for the Common Defense?

It was interrupted by CODEPINK, the anti-war, women-led grassroots organization, who dressed in Revolutionary garb and delivered a letter to Cotton condemning the letter to Iran he spearheaded. The protesters were eventually escorted away by Capitol police.
