Jim Moran continued

"We have far more people determined to hurt Americans and this country than we did before the Iraq war. Iraq has become the boot camp for extremists. It is a situation where if a mastermind extremist determined to undermine the respect that the United States had around the world, we couldn't have carried out a better scenario from their standpoint." - CONGRESSMAN JIM MORAN


JIM MORAN, born in Boston, tranplanted to Virginia, is a veteran of civil rights activism in the 60's, and public service in the following decades. For eight terms as congressman from Virginia's 8th district he has fought for civil rights, the environment and other progressive issues. From the outset he opposed the war in Iraq - despite representing a district that includes military bases, the Pentagon, and defense-related businesses - because he believed that the war was wrong.
