"Big" anti-war protest in DC

C-SPAN is carrying it live and I've been watching it on and off all day.

One thing I keep hearing from the various speakers is the hysterical "100,000 dead" meme. I'd be suprised if there are many people who still actually believe that statistic, including, I think, the people who are using it.

The crowd seems pretty small and the current speaker is blaming the low turnout on Amtrak.

UPDATE: Organizers are claiming 250,000 participants. From what I saw I'd be suprised if it was 1/10 that size.

UPDATE #2: Gateway Pundit has more.
