These Dems couldn't find their own butts with both hands in broad daylight.

This announcement came from Alan Grayson's office on November 19th:

---Representatives Alan Grayson (FL-09), Barbara Lee (CA-13), and Jan Schakowsky (IL-09) will participate in a briefing today with individuals affected by U.S. drone strikes in Yemen.

These individuals will share their stories - offering new perspectives about the ways in which the strikes have affected their families, their communities, and their daily lives. The group will also discuss the potential for a democratic transition in Yemen.---

One of the scheduled speakers Mohammad Al Ahmady, the Yemen director for Geneva-based Al Karama, was not the best of choices. According to the Free Beacon, he was such a bad choice that Obama's own State Department denied a visa to the Democratic Party speaker.

---Ahmady, who also serves as a top official in an al Qaeda-linked Yemeni political party, did not attend because of visa issues. The State Department said it could not comment on visa matters. Several Al Karama officials have faced terrorism allegations. Al Karamaís founder and current president Abdul Rahman Naimi was designated as a terrorist and al Qaeda supporter by the U.S. Treasury Department in December, along with the groupís Yemen representative Abdulwahab Al-Humayqani. Al Karamaís legal director, Rachid Mesli, is currently wanted for terrorism charges in Algeria.---

The real question is don't these guys check? Or did they check and not care? Either way it shows the disregard these three representatives have for national security.
