Withdraw from Afghanistan

Withdraw from Afghanistan

Sunday night, President Obama announced that Osama bin Laden had been captured and killed by US forces. This is welcome news which I hope provides a certain amount of closure for the families of the 9/11 victims. Now that we have accomplished this mission, there is no excuse for continuing our military engagement in Afghanistan.

Please sign my petition, which I will deliver to President Obama. If enough of us sign, he'll get the message loud and clear that progressives, Mainers and Americans want to end the war in Afghanistan quickly.

Full petition text:

"We commend you for bringing Osama bin Laden to justice. Please keep your commitment of an accelerated withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan beginning this July."
