D.C. in Brief

I just got back from Our Nation’s Capitol, and it will take me a while to catch up.

As you know, I was up there in the belly of the Great Satan to attend two events featuring Geert Wilders. Each involved one or more brief speeches, a showing of Fitna, and then a question-and-answer session.

Both events were sponsored by the Center for Security Policy and the International Free Press Society. The first was invitation-only and took place in the Lyndon B. Johnson Room of the U.S. Senate, at the invitation of Senator John Kyl of Arizona. Sen. Kyle spent a while talking to Mr. Wilders before the speeches started, and I was able to take some photos of the two men conversing.

Unfortunately, I lack skill as a photographer and was using a crappy camera, so the non-flash photos required some work to make them usable.

The photos I took there aren’t much good; I was taking them at a distance, and without a flash, so most of them are too blurry to be rehabilitated.

I haven’t had time to look at the blogs, but I’ll bet Pamela has all the skinny on a little contretemps between several well-known bloggers and a journalist who asked a very — ahem — loaded question of Mr. Wilders. Go over to Atlas Shrugs and see what she has to say.

I’ll have more to report about the two events tomorrow, after I’ve had a good night’s sleep and caught up with the email.
