Crowe left D.C. once it became clear that Democrats under the Obama Administration would fail to challenge the militarization of the national economy and of U.S. foreign policy, and would instead greatly escalate the Afghanistan War.

He organized vigils and participated in civil disobedience actions to call for the end of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
