Cindy Sheehan never got the meeting with George W. Bush she was requesting this summer. But today in Washington, the mother of a fallen Iraq war soldier got something else: Sheehan was arrested today during a protest just outside the White House.

According to the Associated Press, Sheehan was arrested after police told her and several dozen other protesters three times that they could not sit on the sidewalk in front of the White House. As Sheehan was taken into custody, protesters chanted, "The whole world is watching."
