Here's the latest video from WMNF's Kelly Benjamin in Washington D.C.
Police pepper-sprayed activists this weekend, including St. Petersburg homeless-rights activist Rev. Bruce Wright.
The October 2011 demonstrators object to the use of U.S. drones in attacks on other countries and used the museumâs drone display as a backdrop of their protest.
But an assistant editor of the conservative magazine The American Spectator admitted to infiltrating the protest and provoking law enforcement.
Below is Kelly's video of former U.S. Army Colonel and retired State Department diplomat Ann Wright and Rev. Bruce Wright (no relation) who describe the pepper spraying at Smithsonian Air and Space Museum on October 8, 2011.
