Tell the House Armed Services Committee to read Eikenberry’s warning.

Posted by Derrick Crowe on February 2nd, 2010

The New York Times recently published the full text of U.S. Ambassador Karl Eikenberry’s memo to President Obama detailing his deep reservations about sending more troops to Afghanistan. The White House ignored his warnings and sent troops anyway.

With the House Armed Services Committee set to begin the 2011 Defense Department budget process on Wednesday, it’s essential that its members read Eikenberry’s warnings about the dangers of deepening U.S. military involvement in the Afghanistan war.

Sign our act.ly petition to the House Armed Services Committee:

petition @HASCDemocrats @HASCRepublicans to read the Eikenberry cables. http://act.ly/1oe RT to sign #actly

After President Obama announced a troop surge despite Eikenberry’s warnings, The New York Times reported that:

Without offering details, Mr. Eikenberry has said in public hearings since then that his concerns have been dealt with, and that he supported the White House’s troop increase plan. But it is not clear what might have changed about his assessment…

The Eikenberry documents spell out in detail why a military strategy in Afghanistan is the wrong approach. HASC members should write strong language into the 2011 Defense budget that requires the Pentagon to begin withdrawing our troops by July 2011. Sign the petition today.

Next steps: Join our Twitter vigil against the Afghanistan war!

  1. [...] morning my inbox contained an email from Derrick Crowe at Rethink Afghanistan asking me to sign a petition… but this petition was not like anything I have ever [...]

  2. David R. Small says:

    The experts from on site make strong appeals for the President not to follow his increased Afghan policy and history clearly re-enforces their recommendations. There is no basis for the US to be able to accomplish there what no other large country has ever been able to do over the long Afghanistan history. We should withdraw and concentrate on sophisticated targeting of the terrorists around the world who present the threats to the world that our military approach in Afghanistan is unsuited to do with any success.

  3. June Macy says:

    I would at least like President Obama to acknowledge the concerns of Elkenberry and others. Then tell us why He doesn't support it.

  4. Mike Franklin says:

    This is also more billions of dollars per year that will increase the national debt and degrade any efforts to improve the lives of American citizens.

  5. john michel says:

    Amen to all of this great documentary material. It is just amazing, the dishonesty of the Obama White House. I voted for that guy. I hate politics. It is filthy in this country and plenty others. Switzerland is an example of a relatively clean country. They change presidents every year. They are a confederation. They vote on issues when they come up, not after a two year campagn costing hundreds of billions of dollars like we spend.

    The defense industry and it's ancillaries are eating this country alive. The financial institutions are on board also, as are the television networks! They love this war. Without this war, our economy will collapse. With is we will just continue to wither.

    Dare we say it? Our new president, the Great Hope of liberals has been sold a bill of goods by the Military/Industrial complex President Eisenhower warned us about many years ago. As the AP reports (1-12-10), “President Obama plans to ask Congress for an additional $33 billion to fight the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, on top of a record request for $708 billion for the Defense Department next year.” In stark contrast, here’s what he said not so long ago, “In the wake of an economic crisis, too many of our neighbors and friends are out of work and struggling to pay the bills. So, we can’t simply afford to ignore the price of the wars.” He goes on to summarize, “That’s why our troop commitment in Afghanistan cannot be open ended because the nation I’m most interested in building is our own.”
    The only conclusions one can come to for this change of heart toward what is becoming an embarrassing war for the American people is that the president has been convinced the reasons to expand the military involvement in Afghanistan are that: We must exact vengeance for Afghan involvement in 9-11; history does not matter and we can do it better than the armies of Alexander the Great, the British Empire at its pinnacle, the might of the Russian armies (and many others), all of whom failed there; that we need to show that the world’s most powerful military is not weak; that the new American president is not a wimp; that cleansing Afghanistan of Al Qaeda will remove a threat that already has spread far beyond its borders; that “collateral damage” to civilians is just the acceptable cost of war; and that we can do very little that is diplomatically acceptable to secure Pakistan’s shaky government and poorly guarded nuclear arsenal.

    None of those reasons speak to the realistic interests of the United States. One wonders whatever happened to that promising and clear-headed young man who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and who would show the world that we are a compassionate, peace loving country?

    Something fishy was going on in the Summer of '08, when after calling for the US to get out of Iraq – something he had done consistently, over a long period of time – he threw in the shocking addendum: “and finish the fight in Afghanistan”. By then he had roped us all in, and we didn't really have any other choice. We all hoped that it was just lip-service designed to court the middle/middle right. Whoever *got to him* back then has come calling for their payment.

  9. Bob Hauser says:

    My strongest and simultaneously worst suspicions of November a year ago are being confirmed daily….and they were that Obama would be blindly following right in Dubya's paw prints….Bush has ruined this country irreparably and by bogging us down in the known and proven GRAVEYARD OF EMPIRES….Afghanistan…Obama is merely driving the last couple of nails in America's coffin and totally discrediting the armed forces of the United States by using them as a cheap K-mart throw away tool instead of the respected instrument of bona fide national defense they were unambiguously intended by the Constitution to be.
    How much more trauma like 9/11 is going to have to be forced on the people in America before they get it through their thick skulls that our entire national psych has been suicidally deluded and conditioned to blindly accept and welcome eternal war for eternal peace while financial parasites enrichen themselves off the dead of wars they never have to fight….wars in all the wrong places for all the wrong reasons?

  10. Deborah Morgan says:

    I voted for Obama, but can not support our escalation of troupes and arms in Afghanistan. Our national economy is in shambles, the national debt is out of control and we can not as a nation, afford another war in which we can not win. There are terrorists cells all over the world, I say we keep our intelligence agencies coordinated with each other, to ward off any future attacks and back out of both Iraq and Afghanistan. We do not need a modern day Viet Nam. As a nation, we work with our allies to protect us from future acts of terrorism. To my knowledge, no country has ever won a war in Afghanistan, it's a rock, with a terrain that is impossible to strategically attack or defend. Mr. Obama, I plead with you to listen to the public, and not send more troupes to a war which will only turn out to be a huge waste of time, money and most importantly, young lives. Deborah Morgan

  11. leacox says:

    Finish the fight was to get Ben laden and votes from republicans or military who beleive we need to fisnish the job.
    The problem with people in general is lack of info. we have not one bit of info that he has. I oppose the war, but if we leave, the government will fall, Taliban will return, women will suffer, Bin laden will have his safe heaven back. Forget him what about the people there and the soldier who have fought for their freedom?
    I think Obama is mediating the step by placing a dead line and leaving it open to change his mind and leave sooner. I wish we could have an agreement with the Taliban, so people there will not suffer persecution. It is a terrible situation, no easy answer.

  12. leacox says:

    As he could change the military, CIA and all other entranched institution over night? Are we naive or just uninformed?
    I have no idea what information about Pakistan he has. If we cannot guard the nuclear, then shut it down. As for the war, I think he has diminished and he will get out but not run out.

  13. plucas says:

    I do not as a citizen of the U.S of America support the war in Afghanistan, Troop surges, Karzi, or Billions supporting Afghan security forces. Tell Karzi to get money from his drug dealing brother, take a dose of heroin or something and get out of the U.S. pocket.

  14. David Klinke says:

    I think the bigger problem is people blindly believing all the crap their government force feeds them. The American media is complicit in this problem. For a non-biased POV I like to read some of the Canadian and British newspapers.

  15. Ron Russell says:

    I too support Obama in most of his endeavors, yet I cannot fathom why we have escalated this aspect of the war. I assume that as an ordinary citizen I am not privy to any of the intelligence on the subject, which Obama, naturally, has at his command.
    At first, I had hoped that there was some renewed hope that Osama was within range of being captured, yet now I worry that the build up is because the military knows that the nuclear weapons in Pakistan are in peril of being stolen by terrorists. If this is the “secret” reason for the build up, I cannot comprehend why steps were not already taken to remove these weapons from Pakistan by now. They could have been taken to a safe harbor or disarmed. Other than these two reasons, why on earth are we spending so much time, money, and the lives of our military on this god-forsaken place? Karzi is another corrupt pig installed by the oil companies (whom he previously worked for) and has no support from his own people.
    Oh, and if nothing else, would someone kindly pull that stinking green hat and cape off of this idiot? I am so sick of seeing him prancing around in that outfit. Jesus, at least let him steal enough money from us and his own people to buy a better wardrobe. Ron Russell

  16. Bob Hauser says:

    Has even one of you on this thread stopped to ask yourself just how much cold, hard cash the so-called “federal reserve bank” has been making off of Iraq and Afghanistan?….back in 1935, Smedley Darlington Butler, who to this very day remains the single most highly decorated officer in the entire history of the Corps, wrote a short but deadly accurate and extremely powerful treatise whose thesis was its title—-WAR IS A RACKET. Therein he flatly stated that there will never be an end to warfare in our lifetimes until we take the PROFIT out of it….Deborah on this thread said she “plead” for the damned prez not to send a troop surge of 30,000 to the GRAVEYARD OF EMPIRES….Deborah…you are flatly wasting your time….Obama is nothing but a narcissistic throwaway tool for the warmongers and daddy warbucks types…and of course the jewish international banksters like BEN BERNANKE, Paulson, Tim Geithner and all the rest who never have to fight in these wars …and whose rich kid jewish brats never have to soil their hands in them. Obama simply does not give a damn about you or anyone else whois not deep megapockets…PERIOD. The only way to stop the sheer lunacy of America's constant and invariably bone headed intrusion into the affairs of other nations is to take it to the streets and to resist by whatever means avails itself. We live in a hoodlum country…FACE IT.

  17. Sandy Fackler says:

    Pease! you may think that this is easy to sign the petition but it's not if you are a standard Internet user and not a Tweeter. Can we please also have a link to a URL for signing this? Or don't we count anymore?

  18. Sandy Fackler says:

    Sadly, though, women have never stopped suffering in Afganistan, the punishment arena simply moved down the street. This from a non-embedded independent Journalist at least 3 years ago.

    Osama bin Laden has always had a safe haven, he isn't captured, is he?

    I too supported Pres. Obama but I am sorely disappointed in the recommendations of his Clinton advisors in MANY choices that have been made this first year in office.

    What is needed now is to do the right thing for this country and Afganistan as well and get out now. It does no good to jump in to save a drowning nation if you are drowning yourself.

    I wish I had your faith in Pres. Obama, Lea. But I don't. He appears now to be just another politician, always campaigning for money and not much else. And the Supreme Court just assured that this will be be the way in our elections forever unless the do nothing Congress which is apparently not controlled by anything but MONEY will pass a constitutionally correct law to take our country back from BIG Corporations and their BIG money.

  19. bertiechampers says:

    To: President Obama and administration.

    We voted for you under the premise that you would seek to end these endless US lead invasions and illegal occupations . This newest plan for increasing Afghanistan US troop deployments is in direct contradiction to the promises of you gave us. Rather than pandering to the toupee clad senate and the morally bankrupt, murderous pigs inside the Military Industrial Complex, in their stinking troughs and making obscene profits from these so-called 'just wars', listen to those with wisdom, who care for others and who understand history. There are many who advocate no increased troop deployment, why should they be ignored by you and your administration?

    We'll keep following the money and hope that soon we don't find you also with your nose in the trough.

    Listen when your heart tells you which side you should be on and, if you want to really want to make history, get on the case before it's too late and you might get our vote in the future………

  20. Charlene Woodcock says:

    The Congress and President are flowing our tax dollars (plus billions borrowed from China) to Halliburton, Blackwater-Xe, and other military contractors to wreak death and destruction when we voted for an end to war and we have critical need for our taxes here at home. We must put Americans back to work, improve education, clean our environment, and ensure that all Americans can get healthcare, with a public option as a majority of us wants.

  21. Bob Hauser says:

    Yes, and like all of those things we “should” be doing, you will never live to see any of them nor will your kids until bagel-ears is out of office by impeachment….Obama, just like Dubya before him and Clinton before that and Bush's old man before that, is yet further proof that the American people just simply don't give a rat's ass what gets dredged up out of an estuary and dumped on the plush carpeting of high office…..the echo from Obama's falsely taken oath of office hadn't even died down before he started selling this country down the river to AIPAC and Israel and the jewish international credit cartel….this has all been thoroughly documented for those who have the courage to face it.

  22. Bob Hauser says:

    Why do you waste your time orating to Obama about the promises he never had any intention of keeping anymore than anyone else in the scatosphere that is American politics?….you might just as well talk to an out house wall—you would get a more intelligent response. Obama never had any intention whatsoever of serving the people in America and much less the letter and spirit of the Constitution. If you would just use your eyes you will note that Obongo, the narcissistic star boarder in the White Brothel, is nothing but a puppet…a throwaway tool…for the jewish “advisers” he is completely surrounded by: jews like Rahm Emanuel, Tim Geithner, Paulson and of course Joe Biden who is also jewish. Ogonzo is a damned PUPPET…he is the puppet of the jews who want America to remain in a state of war for all eternity so that they can profit. Why can't you people get this through your damned skulls?….the entire last century was proof of it. How god damned comatose can the people in this country be?

  25. Bob Hauser says:

    Yes…thank you for raising that issue

  26. Bob Hauser says:

    Yes,and I think you will find that all of the main stream rags in Britain and Canada are bought, paid for and run, money,marbles and chalk by the same dirt bag credit cartelists that run America and caused this depression—if you really want the truth about much of anything, try the Barnes review or the Occidental Quarterly….or subscribe to the Rense Report…you will get more truth out of them in five seconds reading than you ever will out of the main sewer stream American, Brit or Canadian press all put together.

  27. joemamas says:

    I like the work you do and support the same views but there is NO place here to sign your petition…only thing I see is to 'tweet' this petition and I don't fucking TWEET/ TWAT anything…that is the mist lame, bullshit thing I've ever seen…if you're only looking for twits who twat themselves then go fuck yourself (I've been a peace activist for 40 fucking years and I DON'T need some fucking TWITTER non-sense…it's the most ridiculous mind-fucking waste of time I could ever imagine!!!)

  28. Wayne Aubrey King says:

    It appears that I can’t sign the petition without joining
    Twitter. I do not want to join Twitter. I’m a Facebook type guy.

  29. gpetz says:

    LIsten to President and before being president general Isenhower warned in his parting message on exiting the presidency say, watch out for the military industrial complex. That's what is in operation here, even more strongly than when Isenhower spoke because we have more people working as contractors in the war zone than we have soldiers.
    When one comes into the presidency, one is surrounded by the lobbiest for the military-industrial complex. What that kind of influence, do you understand how an otherwise poorly concieved war can continue?
    We need a national emergency declared that would reinstitute the draft, let non-violent offenders out of jail and pardon them if they join the military. Stop trucks from traveling intercity. Send all frieght by train. Prohibit people from traveling to work in single occupant automobles. The purpose of these measures is to provide enought people to the miltary so that the ones there now don't have to go back for tour after tour, to cut our petroleum consumption in half in one year. I am calling for declaration of a national emergeny, a marshal law. All citizens must sacrafice for our nation. We are at war, for god sake. We are at war and should start acting like it.

  30. dibilsy says:

    My high ranking military man friend says there is nothing in Afganistan to fight for…uneducated tribal people living in caves, chasing them around to fight the Taliban does not seem viable. We would be fighting terrorism on a scale that doesn't justify chasing our own tail with expenditures that would alienate the interests of the average American people…who have needs being left unaddressed. We need to fix SS, help the disabled, unemployed, underinsured, and homeless before we engage any more of our precious resources in a useless war. We are better off fighting terrorism on OUR homefront. Thank you!

  31. Bob Hauser says:

    I concur…..fromwhat I've seen of and experienced with Twitter, it is the horse's padoo….a superb waste of time for sixth grade “special ed” types

  32. Bertie Champers says:

    Hey Bob,

    Thanks for your comments. You've done me a massive favour!

    Against my better judgment, today was the first time I've posted an opinion
    on any kind of blog. You've nipped in the bud any desire to write another
    online opinion for tossers like you to react to. I'm thrilled to report,
    therefore, that I won't be receiving your type of racist diatribe in future
    and that my 'damned skull' can be spared the misfortune of engaging in
    worthless communication with the like of you.

    Go out and get laid as it's obviously been a while.

    Cheers,

    Bertrand.

  33. Bob Hauser says:

    Road apples.

    The only real thing about the “wars” America has senselessly started in the MidEast and everywhere else is the sheer insanity of America's current BLEEDERSHIP and the raging suicidal stupidity and spinelessness of the people in this country who let them get by with it….and of course the suffering and dying of America's victims…that is very real.
    And nobody…I mean NOBODY has got the brass clad intestinal tract to tell me that I can't drive where I god damned fucking well please ALONE in my car. Anybody try that and I will make war right here on American soil that will make Afghanistan look like a Tupperware party.

  34. joemamas says:

    sorry for language here but thought I was sending a message to directly to Brave New Films re: my frustration at not being able to sign petition…din't mean to come off as a jackass. And I am also angry at the whole Afghanistan 'surge (or whatever Obama calls it that I have stopped publicly supporting Obama…and I worked my ass off to get him elected…guess the military-industrial complex gets whatever they want!!!)

  35. monty says:

    There's always some racist, way-right idiot with blinders on wallowing in the mud just below the surface of any American political discourse ready to blame and defame so disrespectfully anyone who doesn't agree with him. It's clear that they never learned what it means to be an American citizen in a multi-racial America and only long for the good old pre-Civil War days.

    The Surge in Iraq only worked because Sunnis joined up (got paid by the US military) with the US forces and Shiites against Al Qaeda. Has anybody noticed all the bombings in Iraq in the past 9 months. If the Surge only worked temporarily in Iraq where we already had a much larger force then why will it work even temporarily in Afghanistan where the beefed-up forces will still be less than those that were in Iraq at the time of the Surge?

    Seems you've done a lot of things in your life against whatever excuse for “better judgement” you've ever had. The good news is that a mongoloid like you won't be posting anymore and as far as going out to get laid is concerned I don't have to “go out” as those of your ilk seem to have to do. The old and time honored saying is that some people would screw anything.
    We have rank ignorami like you largely to thank for the current depression and the messes in the MidEast….gotta love it if you are some kind of subterranean. A very good bye and a very good riddance

  39. Bob Hauser says:

    Full Monty…..did I go and ruffle your plumage a little? Well, this will shock you so traumatically that it will make your head swim from here to St Vincent's Island….but I have had myriad arguments with people who had what it took to think outside the box….which of course flatly excludes the kind of brain-dead yuppies who have their faces grafted to a lap top screen and use terms like “racist” when they don't have a damned clue in Hell what they are talking about. Ogonzo gets no respect from me because he is worthy of none—-as respect is an emotion or sentiment and must be evoked but can never appear on demand. Now I know that is a 747 for one such as you but it is a fact nonetheless. I owe NO ONE any respect who falsely swears to uphold the letter and spirit of the Constitution such as those who have totally infested public office in this country long since. We spent ten years losing a so-called “police action” in VietNam that we were never intended to win in the first place thanks largely to a satchel faced jewish traitor named Henry Kissinger which I am sure bothers you not in the least because you never set foot over in country no doubt.
    As re “longing” for the antebellum days of the South, my ancestors were in Germany back then and it seems that it was White gentiles of European ancestry who gave us our Constitution that people of your ilk seem to regard as such a joke: What you refer to as a “multiracial nation”, is in fact no more than a catch basin and septic tank for all of the nonwhite wretched refuse of the universe and the current “government of a free people” is so jew rotted and infested that America should have a new flag—–a dollar sign in piss yellow circumscribed by the Mogen David, also in piss yellow all on a field of shit brown. “Multiracialism” is what brought down the Egyptian Empire and 26 other civilizations in history just in case you didn't happen to know it and you are lobotomized by the public FOOL system to think America is any different? You are truly comatose.

    “Political discourse” indeed…you wouldn't even know the meaning of the term…oh, and by the way, I am not only totally unashamed of my WHITE German ancestry, but horror of all unspeakable horrors, I am entirely proud of it. If someone were to take all of the German influence out of America, you wouldn't want to spend five minutes here—in fact you probably wouldn't even last that long.

    I agree with your Dubya comment. The Bush administration seemed to have one aim: to systematically destroy the country on every level.

  42. Gerald Balm says:

    War, War and more WAR. When will it end? No body wins in any war. Look at Israel. The most hated country. Often called the international Pariah. After 62 yrs. she is still fighting. I'm sure Hitler's memory is kept alive by this war psychology. Of course Israel is in war because she gets 90 % of all her expenses paid for by US and western nations hard earned tax payers dollars.

  43. yancy says:

    If the president is bucking the info presented and chooses to follow a warring posture , could it be that his bosses want war.
    Please no more ignorance allowed . Obama cannot tell the truth , like Kennedy he would be dead …..

  44. steve1walker says:

    “Winning” Afghanistan, by any legitimate definition, simply cannot be achieved by WWxx military practices. It is not a question of two mighty armies having it out Super Bowl-fashion. The billions that will be spent in this type of endeavor serves to do nothing but create enemies faster than you can kill them. It's the same path Israel has taken and they are now in an endless cycle that is virtually hopeless.
    It may still cost billions, but the only possibility- and there are still no guarantees- is to stop creating the enemies and help Afghans into the world community on terms acceptable to Afghans.

Peacemakers take action to lead the charge to end the war. Join forces with the over 100,000 people who make a difference.
