A protester from Code Pink interrupted the Senate Armed Services Committee hearing Tuesday on U.S. policy to combat ISIS. The brief heckling at the hearing took place while Arizona Sen. John McCain questioned Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and Gen. Martin Dempsey.

"I always appreciate special attention from this group, Mr. Chairman," McCain said.

"U.S. out Iraq and Syria," the protester said as she was pulled from the room. "Shame on you Sen. McCain."
