One of my few disappointments at CPAC was being unable to interview Ayyan Hirsi Ali .I attended her book signing but her security would not let me approach for an interview despite repeated requests. Given the danger she is in regularly I certainly have no business complaining.
I was slightly surprised that there wasn’t a longer line for her. Of course her books have been out for a while so a fair amount of people have already seen them. I also found it ironic that the book signing area was right next to the Muslims for America booth and the gentleman running it while I was there seemed a tad uncomfortable when she was there. Of course that could be entirely my perspective.
As soon as the base signing was done she was hustled out of the area via a back spot, stoping only to greet John Bolton.
I actually should have thought of bringing my own copies from home but I was carting enough stuff as it was.
