Update: The Battle of Berkeley
Operation Yellow Elephant salutes Code Pink of the San Francisco Bay Area, and its founder, Medea Benjamin, for ensuring that the United States Marine Corps will maintain its Officer Selection Office right in the middle of Berkeley, California, for many decades to come.
That's right: Not only have Code Pink's every-Wednesday protests failed to persuade the Marine Corps to move its Officer Selection Office, but Captain Richard Lund and his team made their mission for the recently concluded academic year and are hard at work on the next one.
We recently received a nice letter from Captain Lund, thanking us for our letter of support that we sent at the height of the controversey. His "Open Letter to Code Pink" remains a classic.
Thanks to Code Pink, the United States Marine Corps will never close its Berkeley Officer Selection Office, which serves the northern Bay Area of California.
This convenient location to Cal-Berkeley will also help a President Obama [if nominated and elected] to call upon his strongest supporters there to Be A Man! Enlist!
That is, if they really want to Support Our President.
