Wire: MoveOn.org Working Obama on Afghanistan
Off the Wire:
WASHINGTON, Sept. 26, 2009 -- The liberal group MoveOn.org is urging millions of its members to send a message to President Barack Obama demanding an exit strategy from Afghanistan, according to The Hill Web site.
The Hill noted that in a Friday e-mail message to almost 5 million members, MoveOn.org said: "Now, the majority of Americans -- those of us who are for as quick and as responsible an end to the war as possible -- need to make our voices heard, too.
"Can you write to the White House and tell them we need a clear exit strategy -- not tens of thousands more U.S. troops stuck in a quagmire?"The Hill said MoveOn.org seized on recent comments by Vice President Joe Biden and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, who have urged caution on rushing to send more troops to Afghanistan "without a clear strategy."
