Rep. Alan Grayson to Congress: Reject ‘Warmongering’ and Focus on Problems at Home
Posted on Sep 5, 2013
In the wake of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s voting 10 to 7 to authorize strikes on Syria, Florida Democrat Rep. Alan Grayson told “Democracy Now!” on Thursday: “I am very disturbed by this general idea that every time we see something bad in the world, we should bomb it. … The president has criticized that mindset, and now he has adopted it. It’s simply not our responsibility to act alone and punish this.”
Grayson has set up a website—DontAttackSyria.com—collecting signatures for a petition calling on Congress to deny the president permission to strike Syria.
