MoveOn.org: Americans Elected Obama on Promise to End War in Iraq

Statement of Anna Galland, executive director of MoveOn.org Civic Action, in response to President Obama’s remarks today on U.S. engagement in Iraq:

“Ending the war in Iraq was one of the best decisions President Obama has made. The decision to send in even a limited number of Special Operations forces is a dangerous and troubling development that threatens to lead to broader military engagement.

“Our nation has sacrificed enough in Iraq. We should not put our troops in the middle of an Iraqi civil war that can only be solved by Iraqis themselves.

“Americans elected President Obama in 2008 on a promise to end the war in Iraq. We are counting on him to remain true to that promise — and we are counting on Congress to repeal the decade-old Authorization for Use of Military Force and hold a new vote on any new use of force in Iraq.”
