Congressman Jerrold Nadler And 20 Other Reps: Get Out Of Afghanistan Now

Posted by | July 1, 2010 17:23 | Filed under: Top Stories

New York Congressman Jerrold Nadler is speaking out against funding the war in Afghanistan and says we should get out now.

“Every dollar spent and every life wasted in Vietnam was just that: A waste,” said Democratic Representative Jerrold Nadler. “Afghanistan is the same. Every dollar we spend, every life we waste is a waste.”

Some 21 lawmakers have joined the “Out of Afghanistan Caucus” opposing continued combat operations there, according to one of the group’s leaders, Democratic Representative John Conyers.

The revolt against President Barack Obama’s strategy to turn around the faltering campaign came as the House of Representatives was expected to pass a bill to pump another 37 billion dollars into the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
