PAUL KAWIKA MARTIN
Political director of Peace Action, Martin said today: "A true debate in the House on Afghanistan is long overdue. Today's vote about removing troops from Afghanistan by the end of the year shows grave concerns about President Obama's military strategy in Afghanistan. Many more members of Congress than vote today to remove troops within nine months voice publicly and privately their concerns about the extreme costs and efficacy of U.S. military strategy in Afghanistan. As the president and many of his advisers have mentioned, there's no military solution in Afghanistan. It's time to transition from more military spending to investing in diplomacy, development and economic stimulus that creates long-term stability in the region."
