Following President Obama’s speech about Syria, Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) spoke with with Ari Rabin-Havt on The Agenda about his campaign to prevent any military action in the tumultuous Middle Eastern country. Grayson, who has been called “The Democratic Congressman Who Thinks He Can Stop the Syria War,” is the brains behind insurgent website DontAttackSyria.com.

The website has received almost 100,000 signatures to date and has resulted in a flood of calls and emails from both the American public and Congress dissuading action in Syria. Grayson said he is proud to be a part of “getting that peace train rolling” but for every person who has contributed to the peace effort “those are the people who deserve the credit.”
