Has anybody seen attendance figures for the "Freedom Walk"?

I can't find a single news report giving attendance numbers. The AP story, repeated in hundreds of newspapers, says that "Several thousand people joined in the 'America Supports You Freedom Walk,' a demonstration organized by the Defense Department," but no specific figures or even estimates are given. Odd, because no one was supposed to be allowed in without prior registration. Which means the Government has pretty damned exact numbers that it isn't sharing.

And does anybody else gag when they see phrases like "demonstration organized by the Defense Department"?

I've noticed that none of the news outlets have made more than a passing mention of it and I've only seen one photo that was on screen for a mear second or two.

Must not have been much of a success????

I have to assume that a society that has to tolerate a "demonstration organized by the Defense Department" must be a society where the citizens have been relieved of their weapons - like what happened in New Orleans! - which prevents these same citizens from being able to defend themselves against their govenment.
