Leaving Afghanistan by Staying
President Obama has signed an agreement with President Karzai to keep a major U.S. military presence in Afghanistan through the end of 2014, and to allow a significant unspecified military presence beyond that date, with no end date stipulated.
But Obama forgot to provide any reason not to withdraw from Afghanistan now. Rep. Barbara Lee has a bill for withdrawal now. Tell Congress to back HR 780.
The agreement says it becomes effective when "the Parties notify one another, through diplomatic channels, of the completion of their respective internal legal requirements." The U.S. Constitution requires ratification by the Senate of all treaties.
