Ineffective at Home? Move to Europe!

Interviewed by an Associated Press reporter recently at a swank Reyjkavik hotel, Congressman Ben Chandler said that U.S. national security is improved by taxpayers sending him to Iceland.
"I think Americans have, for quite some time, underestimated the importance of our relations with other countries and how that translates into the security of the United States of America," Chandler said.
Chandler(D-Iceland) was picked to serve as a delegate to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi(D-San Francisco). Both Democrats have been very outspoken in their opposition to America's national defense efforts.
