Exit Iraq on Time: Don't Let Obama Extend Bush's War!
Under intense pressure from the Obama administration, Iraqi leaders have agreed to negotiate a deal that would potentially leave thousands of U.S. troops in Iraq past the end of this year as "trainers".
Representative Barbara Lee has introduced bipartisan legislation that would prevent an extension of the Iraq war by cutting funds for the war after December 31, 2011. This bill would require that the Obama administration stick to the schedule that the U.S. and Iraqi governments agreed upon in 2008 and that President Obama has touted as fulfillment of his campaign promise to end the Iraq war.
Please write your Member of Congress urging him or her to co-sponsor H.R. 2757, the Iraq Withdrawal Accountability Act, which would cut funds for the Iraq war after the end of 2011.
