Tell Congress: It's Time To End the Iraq War
Earlier this summer Reps. Barbara Lee (D-CA) and Walter Jones (R-NC) asked their colleagues to sign a letter to the President urging him to bring all the troops home by the end of the year. MFSO in turn, asked our members to support them by urging their own representatives to sign this letter.
Continuing her efforts towards finally, truly ending the war in Iraq, Congresswoman Lee has written as a bill: HR 2757, the Iraq Withdrawal Accountability Act of 2011, which would require the removal of all US troops and contractors from Iraq on or before the promised deadline December 31 2011. It has reached 37 cosponsors to date.
Despite the growing support for withdrawing our troops from these endless wars, the Obama Administration is trying to persuade the Iraqi government to continue an American military presence beyond that date despite his earlier promises this year. This makes it even more important for our members to reach out to their congressperson and ask them to cosponsor this bill and represent the voices of military families calling for our loved ones to come home.
We urge all of our members to be supportive and active in getting this bill passed.
