Ranger Widow Removed From Rumsfeld Book Signing
Donald Rumsfeld’s book signing at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington State was disturbed by the widow of an army ranger who blames government lies perpetrated by Rumsfeld for her husband’s suicide.
Security officers for the former secretary of defense escorted Ashley Joppa-Hagemann out by the arm, she said Saturday. She and Jorge Gonzalez, the executive director of Coffee Strong, a Lakewood-based anti-war group, confronted Rumsfeld as he promoted his memoir, “Known and Unknown.”
According to an account posted on Coffee Strong’s website: “Mrs. Joppa-Hagemann introduced herself by handing a copy of her husband’s funeral program to Rumsfeld, and telling him that her husband had joined the military because he believed the lies told by Rumsfeld during his tenure with the Bush administration.”Click here for reuse options!
