Subject: Woolsey Amendment to Bring the Troops Home
URGENT ACTION NEEDED!
TAKE ACTION NOW TO VOTE "YES" ON THE WITHDRAWAL OF US TROOPS FROM IRAQ
Just this morning we learned that House Rules Committee has permitted Rep.
Lynne Woolsey to offer an amendment on Iraq to the Defense Authorization
Bill (H.R. 1815 - the National Defense Authorization Act for FY06).
Woolsey's Amendment is calling for the President to develop a plan for the
withdrawal of U.S. military forces from Iraq and submit a plan to the
Congressional Defense Committees. According to Woolsey?s office, the
amendment will be voted on the House floor this evening during debate of the
Defense Authorization Bill. If the Woolsey amendment is adopted, it will
open the debate about Iraq and how to move towards total Iraqi sovereignty
and U.S. withdrawal. It is urgent that you help move this debate forward
by calling and emailing your representative TODAY and urging him or her to
vote "YES" on the Woolsey amendment.
