Yet, the sources who talked to The Hill were furious thatprotesters were not stopped before reaching the Capitol.
"To get that close to the Capitol building, that isridiculous," the second source said. "[Police] were told not to arrestanyone."
The second source added that police had to stand by and watch asprotesters posed in front of their graffiti.
Tens of thousands of people rallied on the Mall and the Capitolcomplex Saturday in protest of the increased troop deployments and the warin Iraq.
