BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Ms. WOOLSEY. Mr. Chairman, I rise today in support of my friend Barbara Lee's amendment.

Let's look at the facts. Two-thirds of Americans oppose our military occupation of Afghanistan. So if the American people were to vote on this amendment today, it would pass overwhelmingly with support from both Democrats and Republicans. After nearly 11 years, Mr. Chairman, enough is enough.

Congress must catch up to the people they represent and embrace a responsible end to this war. Instead of dumping $10 billion a month into an unwinnable war, let's redirect our resources towards a SMART Security approach.

Let's invest in people. Let's invest in development. Let's invest in humanitarian progress. Let's bring our troops home.

Vote ``yes'' on the Lee amendment. Vote ``yes'' for SMART Security. Vote ``yes'' for the American people.
