Code Pink activist Tighe Barry was arrested and charged with disruption of Congress today during the Armed Service Committee meeting where committee members were hearing testimony from Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and the Chair of the Joint Chief of staff General Martin Dempsey.

They need our respect, prayers, and support.
