63 Members Of Congress Want To End The Occupation Of Afghanistan
Posted by DownWithTyranny on May 1st, 2010

From our partners at DownWithTyranny!

Massachusetts Democrat Jim McGovern introduced H.R. 5015 to “require a plan for the safe, orderly, and expeditious redeployment of United States Armed Forces from Afghanistan.” There are now 63 co-sponsors, predominantly Democrats but also including 3 Republicans– Walter Jones (NC), John Duncan (TN) and Timothy Johnson (IL)– and 5 Blue Dogs– Kurt Schrader (OR), the duplicitous and cynical Jane Harman (CA), Mike Michaud (ME), Mike Thompson (CA), and Marion Berry (AR). Twenty-five of them signed on yesterday, signaling a huge uptick in momentum. The whole list is here.

I’ve noticed that virtually all the books Americans read about the U.S. occupation of Afghanistan ignore the Afghan individuals that are mentioned. We learn everything about the American decision makers and key operatives involved but the Afghans… you could read all the books and not know the difference between a scholar and a goat-fucker. BraveNewFilms’ Rethink Afghanistan project is at least helping Americans get some kind of idea about Afghans as human beings.
