US senator calls for quick end to Afghan war
“Mr. Speaker, it is time that we catch up with the American people who are calling for an accelerated end to the war in Afghanistan,” Senator Barbara Lee said.
Speaking in the Senate, she urged her colleagues to join her in writing a letter to President Barack Obama on the early withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan.
“My Republican colleague Walter Jones and I will be sending a letter to the president, renewing our call for an accelerated withdrawal from Afghanistan.
“I encourage all members to join us on this letter. Keeping our troops in Afghanistan through 2014 will not bring about a meaningful difference on the ground,” she remarked.
