Karzai Offers Further Proof of the Immediate Need to End the War
WASHINGTON - Congressman
Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) today made the following statement about
Afghanistan President Karzai’s admission that he receives “bags of cash”
from the Iranian government:
Karzai regime is so corrupt; it doesn’t even bother to try to hide it
anymore. It can’t be voted out of office because the elections are
rigged. While Americans struggle to provide for their families, we
continue to spend billions of taxpayer dollars to prop up the arrogantly
corrupt regime. How bad does it have to get?
more do we need to know? What part of "Get Out" does the
Administration not understand? Our presence in Afghanistan is
indefensible. Our soldiers should not have to put their lives on the
line for this,” added Kucinich.
who has led opposition to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in the House
of Representatives, has previously introduced privileged resolutions
forcing floor votes on ending the war in Afghanistan and removing our
forces from Pakistan.
