President Barack Obama was heckled during a major counterterrorism speech Thursday. The President was speaking at National Defense University in Washington, D.C.
The interruption was caused by Code Pink’s Medea Benjamin according to reporters at the event.
“I’m willing to cut the young lady who interrupted me some slack, because it’s worth being passionate about,” the President said.
“Abide by the rule of law. You’re a constitutional lawyer,” the protestor said.
“The voice of that woman is worth paying attention to. Obviously I do not agree with much of what she said,” the President added.
