Encourage them to fully end America’s longest war and stop the next war before it starts!

The Senate is currently debating and voting on the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). This ‘must pass’ bill gives the Senate a clear choice: to support peace or war in the Middle East.

Our friend, Senator Jeff Merkley, is striving to end the war in Afghanistan once and for all. He introduced an important amendment to the NDAA that would require Congress to debate and vote on any agreement to keep U.S. troops in Afghanistan after next year. Without this important legislation, Afghan tribal leaders will have more say over the future of US troops in Afghanistan than Congress. Tell your Senator to demand better.

Unfortunately, Senator Mark Kirk is using the same bill to try to thwart a potential deal with Iran. He added a hawkish amendment to the NDAA that increases sanctions on Iran, prohibits President Obama from making a reasonable deal, and sets us on a path to war.

The Senate is expected to vote on the NDAA this week, and they need to hear from you!
