I saw this live on the News this morning. A guy dressed in fatigues and waving a gun in one hand and an American flag in the other closed down the 101 Freeway out of Santa Barbara this morning.
After four hours, he finally agreed to surrender, but only if he was first allowed to place an Obama campaign poster on the bridge he’d closed. Here’s a photo:

“The reason appears to be anti-war, but I don’t know the specifics.”
The protester was later identified as a 28-year-old Eddie Vantassel, an Iraqi War Veteran.
