Dear Senator,

We urge you to support Amendment 2343 to the National Defense Authorization Act, sponsored by Senators Merkley (D-OR), Paul (R-KY), Lee (R-UT), Manchin (D-WV), Wyden (D-OR), Harkin (D-IA), Tester (D-MT), and Begich (D-AK). This measure urges explicit congressional authorization if U.S. troops are to remain in Afghanistan after December 2014.

In his first term, President Obama pledged to end the U.S. combat mission in Afghanistan by December 2014. However, there have been numerous reports that several thousand or more troops will remain in Afghanistan beyond that date....
 

Thank you.
