End the War in Afghanistan

Floor Speech

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Mr. McGOVERN. Mr. Speaker, today's New York Times headline:

``Intractable Afghan Graft Hampering U.S. Strategy''; the subtitle: Elite group is known for corruption, but high level trials have been absent.

Mr. Speaker, another story about corruption, another story about Afghan President Karzai's complicity in corruption. This story appears while American servicemen and -women continue to die in Afghanistan, while the American people continue to send billions of dollars each day to Afghanistan to sustain the Afghan Government.

Mr. Speaker, I've had it; the American people have had it. This war is not worth another American life. It is not worth another taxpayer dollar. I urge the President to bring our troops home now. I urge the President to end this war now. Enough is enough.
