Yesterday, Senator Russ Feingold made a policy statement to the editorial board of the Appleton Post-crescent. It is our duty to join his efforts in any way we can to not only set a TIMETABLE FOR WITHDRAWL, but to cut off the funding for the wars NOW.
“So something I have not said before which I want to say here in Appleton is that I think it is time we ought to start discussing a flexible timetable when people in America and Afghanistan and around the world can see where we intend and when we intend to bring our troops out. This isn’t something that can’t be adjusted. It isn’t something that can’t be thought out. But I think what you do is increase the view that we are occupying the country, we don’t have a strategy, if you don’t say look, this is basically what we think we’ll do.
I know the argument will be, well they’ll know when we’re leaving. Well you can say the same thing about Iraq right now. And those who claim we’re succeeding in Iraq aren’t saying that now. There’s a timetable out there and people claim it’s succeeding. I think showing the people there and here that we have a sense about when it’s time to leave is going to be one of the best things we can do to succeed in Afghanistan.
