“Obama is a war criminal,” the unidentified man screamed as the two tussled over control of the microphone.

A bystander is then seen pulling the protestor away as he continued yelling something unintelligible.
The president was in town attending a Democratic National Committee fundraiser. The Chicago Sun-Times reported on his agenda:
The dinner a la secret with Axelrod and Emanuel, which is set to begin at 5:45 p.m. and end at 6:15 p.m. — is prefaced at 4:45 p.m. by a $32,400-a-ticket Democratic National Committee cocktail party for 25 donors at Chicago Cut tossed by Mesirow Financial’s Richard Price.
After dinner with Emanuel and Axelrod, Obama heads to a $10,000-a-ticket DNC dinner fundraiser for 55 people at the Lincoln Park home of major Obama donors Craig Freedman and Grace Tsao-Wu.
Here is what NBC reporters witnessed. Second video, live shot from CBS:
