Duhh, Congress, Wake Up! End the War in Afghanistan

This news comes from THINK PROGRESSIVE–KAS

The latest Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that two-thirds of Americans say the war in Afghanistan isn’t worth fighting , marking “the highest proportion yet opposed to the conflict.” Additionally, nearly “three-quarters of Americans say President Obama should withdraw a ‘substantial number’ of combat troops from Afghanistan this summer.”

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) wants Obama to offer a clear redeployment plan for Afghanistan . Just as Gen. David Petraeus is preparing to testify before the U.S. Senate, Gillibrand is calling for Congress to pass Safe and Responsible Redeployment of United States Combat Forces from Afghanistan Act, a plan to withdrawal of U.S. combat forces beginning on July 1.
