He must have taken a detour on his way to a Ron Paul event. Via the Corpus Christi Caller-Times:
Police arrested a protester Monday at an early morning campaign stop by former President Bill Clinton and charged him with disorderly conduct.
The protester, identified as Skyler Martin King, 25, of Corpus Christi, had been holding a sign that read “9/11 was an inside job.” After Clinton finished his speech and was shaking hands with the crowd, King began yelling at the former president, who was campaigning for his wife Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential run.
A member of the crowd grabbed the sign and tore it in half. The man began screaming at police officers, asking them to protect his First Amendment rights.
French actress Marion Cotillard sends her sympathies.
She just won a best actress Oscar for playing Edith Piaf in “La Vie En Rose,” but unlike the famous singer’s signature tune, “Non, Je Regrette Rien,” Marion Cotillard is singing a song of the opposite sentiment.
Cotillard found herself in hot water recently over comments she made in an interview last year accusing the U.S. of a 9/11 cover-up.
“Marion never intended to contest nor question the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and regrets the way old remarks have been taken out of context,” her Paris-based lawyer Vincent Tolesano told the Agence France Presse.
The actress made her comments on a French television program in February 2007, saying “I think we’re lied to about a number of things,” including who brought down the World Trade Center.
Cotillard argued that it was an inside job, prompted by the towers becoming obsolete.
“It was a money-sucker because they were finished, it seems to me, by 1973, and to recable all that, to bring up-to-date all the technology and everything, it was a lot more expensive, that work, than destroying them,” she said.
