Condoleezza Rice appeared agitated but generally unfazed when an anti-war protester waved blood-red hands in her face, accusing the secretary of state of being a "war criminal."

"Blood of millions of Iraqis is on your hands," the protester told Rice, who was President Bush's national security adviser when he decided to invade Iraq.

"War criminal! ... War Criminal!" the black-clad, "blood"-soaked protester screamed as authorities dragged her from a hearing room on Capitol Hill. "Take her to the Hague."

Rice was testifying to the House Foreign Relations Committee Wednesday, where she continued what some critics see as the Bush administration's drumbeat to war with Iran.

"We are very concerned that the policies of Iran constitute perhaps the single greatest challenge to American security interests in the Middle East and around the world," Rice said.

Although video of Wednesday's hearing shows only one protester getting in Rice's face, Capitol Police quickly removed several members of the anti-war group Code Pink who appeared to have caused no disturbance. (Code Pink members have disrupted administration officials' testimony in the past.)

"Stop, you're hurting me, what are you doing," one of the women yelled as she was forced from the Congressional hearing.

The following video is from CBS.com, broadcast on October 23, 2007.
