The sea of humanity sweltering in front of the Capitol Wednesday appeared to HOH to be less interested in getting an earful from pols -- who popped by to rile up the crowd and then quickly retreated to air conditioned offices -- than in being heard, once and for all, themselves.

The Vietnam War veteran expressed concern that a pattern of missteps throughout the Middle East — “Libya, Iraq, Syria … and who knows what else,” Kirby tallied — have woefully undermined U.S. authority.
“This’ll be funding all the terrorists … unless we stop’em,” he asserted.
Kirby was joined in his eternal vigilance by the motliest of crews, a who’s who of disillusionment that included:
