U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Orlando, was evacuated last week from the Central African nation of Niger, where he was stranded during a coup, by a military contractor the outspoken congressman has railed against in the past.
Grayson was on a House Committee on Science and Technology tour last Thursday when a military coup closed the airport in Niger and then took over the government, violently entering buildings close to the U.S. Embassy compound where he was staying.

The company that Grayson has continuously demonized as a congressman and made a fortune off of by suing as a slimebag trial lawyer, winds up saving his useless life.
I pray that central Floridians will send this nasty, sneering SOB back where he came from.
Should have left him there.
They could have oops’d him out the door...../sarc/
“House Committee on Science and Technology tour “
What in the world gave niger offer for science and technology?
These constant junkets for elected officials to travel the globe is out of control.
Your post insults nasty, sneering SOB’s. This guy is far worse.
He probably didn’t even say thank you.
Yep, at about 3,000 feet. That seemed to be the most effective altitude.....
That face has “bullseye” all over it....
I bet he wet himself.
Grayson is an idiot and Blakwater shoulld charge his arse for saving it.
I kinda like Grayson, but this is funny. It reminds me of the B.C. comic strip where the guys decide to dig a dinosaur trap.
parsy, who says “How Humiliating!”
I would almost bet he didnt.
Not only did he not say "thank you," but yesterday Grayson's spokesman tried to avoid the glaring issue that Blackwater saved the douchebag from possible death or dismemberment.
Here's how the spokesman responded yesterday when a jounrnalist asked about the Blackwater angle before it was independently CONFIRMED that it was Blackwater/Xe that got them out of there:
"The Congressman did not know, and frankly did not care, who owned the plane.
IOW, they knew at the time they were questioned who came to their rescue but still tried to avoid admitting it.
He "frankly did not care" who saved his very life?
Got it Alan.
He really is a snarky douche isn’t he. Bet he wasn’t wearing that smug expression when he was being hustled to the chopper..
(Blackwater saves Grayson’s butt)
Just don’t expect him to show any gratitude. He wouldn’t know what it means.
“I kinda like Grayson”
I hope Blackwater has video.. I’m sure his opponent can use it in an ad.
And here’s Representative Grayson , sneering at the people who saved his life... Voters - What does he think of you???
