Latest on National Defense Authorization Act Amendments
Posted by Just Foreign Policy on May 23rd, 2011

From our partners at Just Foreign Policy

The final list of amendments that will be introduced for the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act is not yet finalized or complete, so we will be updating this blog as more information comes out of Congress. We encourage you to make your call as soon as possible, but if you plan to call later in the day, please check back here before doing so.

May 23, 6PM EDT

Call Script

1. Call your Representative at 1-888-231-9276
2. When you reach your Representative’s office, ask to speak to the staff person who handles foreign policy, or ask for the foreign policy staff person by name, if you know it. If this person is not available, leave your message with the person who answered the phone.
3. Tell them: “I urge you to support the McGovern-Jones and Lee amendments to end the war in Afghanistan, the Conyers amendment to stop military escalation in Libya, and the Amash-Lee amendment to strip the authorization for permanent war from the defense bill.”

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog. A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back.
