Rep. Walter Jones, eight term Congressman from North Carolina, discusses why he regrets his initial support for the “unnecessary” Iraq War; the high cost we pay in blood and treasure for continuing the boondoggle in Afghanistan; why a super-debtor nation like the US can’t afford to continue policing the world; how a visit to Walter Reed to see the war wounded can change one’s opinion on US foreign policy; and the small-but-growing Congressional Republican opposition to the Afghanistan War.

Walter Jones was first sworn in to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1995, after serving 10 years as an elected member of the North Carolina General Assembly. Currently serving his 8th term in Congress, Congressman Jones is a member of the House Committees on Armed Services and Financial Services.

  2. Remember when scott pressured that democratic congressman about his support for Israel so he almost began to cry?

    It would be great if he did it more often, to this guy too for example

  3. The man's name was Alan Grayson, , Democrat from Florida. The Congressman who had the courageous "The war is making you poor" act. He lost, he is no longer a member of the House. What would really be great , is if you TOOK THIS Congressman's advice and went to a anti-Afghanistan war protest. See, listening to a radio program and getting your giggles for why the world not going perfect does little if nothing. Could you even lead a boy or girl scout troop? I am not putting you on the spot. I am saying it STARTS WITH US What good is it if someone is 90% right and is made "almost begin to cry" for 10% of his policy.

  4. I'm not impressed with Jones. He's nothing but another mealy-mouthed "conservative" who doesn't see any OPPORTUNITY in supporting wars and invasions which are gaining more unpopularity every day. Had they been going good, this cretin would be standing tall trumpeting all the 'Good' they've reaped and trying to garnish some kudos for being a SUPPORTER.

  5. You assume too much. Listening to AWR is not the height of my activism.
