Congressman Reads ‘Rethink Afghanistan’ Petition Against Escalation

Congressman Alan Grayson reads the “Rethink Afghanistan” petition in the United States House of Representatives on December 15, 2009. The petition from Brave New Foundation, Credo Mobile and True Majority calling on Congress to vote against any bill to fund troop escalation in Afghanistan was signed by over 100,000 people.

The Rethink Afghanistan DVD is available here now, and in good video stores nationwide.

    Man this Grayson guy seems like the only Democrat in Congress worth listening to. When he said the Republican health care plan was for people to “die quickly” I did wonder if he was for real, but he says “end the war now” in this clip. We need more politicians like this, who aren't full of it.
