Kevin Grant (R) states "Arming & training Syrian rebels is a grave mistake for the U.S....Todd Rokita voted yes to arm them"

What was Todd Rokita thinking???

(Reuters) - The U.S. Congress gave final approval on Thursday to President Barack Obama's plan for training and arming moderate Syrian rebels to battle Islamic State, a major part of his military campaign to "degrade and destroy" the militant group. The Senate voted 78-22, in a rare bipartisan show of support for one of Obama's high-profile initiatives. With the House of Representatives approving the legislation on Wednesday, the measure now goes to Obama to sign into law. Ten Senate Democrats and 12 Republicans voted no.

Grants statement...

The U.S. Congress and the current administration have a very short memory of how Syria can't be trusted.  As an Intelligence officer during the Iraq war, I worked in detainee operations and had first hand knowledge of Syrian fighters crossing the Syrian/Iraq border in order to kill U.S. personnel.

This is a slap in the face of all those military personnel who served in Iraq.

It's time for change...

This is another example of why Todd Rokita (R) of the U.S. House of Representatives needs to be replaced.  He voted "yea" to arm these rebels and he didn't make a public statement explaining why he voted for this.

He has lost touch with reality and needs to resign from his position.
