DES MOINES, Iowa (Reuters) - On Friday four American citizens  attempted to make a “citizens arrest” of Karl Rove, former top aide to President George W. Bush . They were arrested themselves, instead. Rove, one of the recognized members of the Neo-Con ‘brain-trust’, has thumbed his nose at a Congressional subpoena by repeatedly refusing to appear before the committee. Rove left the country the very day of his second scheduled appearance and did not have the common courtesy to notify the committee of his intentions. Contempt of Congress and and issuance of a warrant for his arrest is being considered by the committee.

“It should be Karl Rove in that van. (the paddy-wagon) War Criminal!” one of a dozen protesters shouted as the four were put into a police van outside a Des Moines country club where Rove spoke at a private state Republican party fundraiser.

Chet Guinn, a retired Methodist Minister, was among those led away.

“To be silent when major crimes are being committed against all humanity makes us accomplices,” Gwinn told reporters just before his arrest, which took place when protesters stepped past the gate to the private country club.

Such is the price of fighting for the Republic.
