Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin gained notoriety during the Bush (43) years for her rowdy protests of the war on terror. She's so associated with the loud anti-war movement that some people wondered how she was even able to get into President Obama's counter-terrorism speech at the National Defense University Thursday. Sitting in the audience, Benjamin several times interrupted the speech to call on Obama to close Guantanamo Bay Prison.

How'd she get in? By pretending to be with the news media, according to the Washington Post:

In a statement, the university explained that Benjamin “was given access via the list of media attendees expected.”
