The President just announced that he's sending 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan. Whatever they think of his decision, MoveOn members agree that we need a binding military exit strategy and firm benchmarks so we can bring our troops home safely and quickly.
The President doesn't want an open-ended commitment, but pro-war advocates are already pushing him to reverse course. So Congress has to make sure the President keeps his word that our commitment isn't open-ended.With Congress set to begin debating the war this month, they need to hear from those of us who want an end to the war.
A compiled petition with your individual comment will be presented to your senators and your representative.
Full petition text:
"Congress must push the Obama administration to outline firm benchmarks and a binding timeline to bring all of our troops home from Afghanistan as soon as possible."
