A CodePink protestor rushed at Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice this morning as she arrived to testify before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on U.S. policy in the Middle East; note how chairman Tom Lantos, D-San Mateo, went to grab the protestor, Desiree Anita Ali-Fairooz, even as Rice’s bodyguards hurried forward to grab the woman and drag her out.

Lantos ordered the other CodePink protestors tossed from the room too; Capitol Police say three people were arrested.
