Arizona’s U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, a Democrat, of course, questions Central Command General David Petraeus regarding the military’s use of renewable energy.
Giffords, likely to be a congressional short-timer, appears oblivious to the fact that the U.S. is enmeshed in two wars and the situation in Afghanistan is destabilized. Lives of American service personnel are being lost, as the Taliban gains influence in the region and Afghan President Hamid Karzai is considering joining forces with the extremist group.
Giffords impinged on General Petraeus’ valuable time to lecture that the US Air Force uses the most energy in the planet, and that Department of Defense uses the most energy in the United States, linking this to the gulf oil disaster and her concerns about Green energy.
