WASHINGTON (AP) - A lone protester shouting about the Middle East interrupted Sen. John Kerry's confirmation hearing for secretary of state.
Just as Kerry completed his prepared testimony, the woman began shouting about the Middle East. She was escorted from the room.
Kerry alluded to the interruption, telling the Foreign Relations Committee he respects the tradition of free speech and thought.
