“Troopathon” Organizers Will Respond to President Obama's Afghanistan Drawdown Plan

Los Angeles, CA - Representatives from Move America Forward (, the nation's largest pro-troop grassroots organization, will be available for comment prior to and following President Obama's White House speech on Wednesday evening.

Move America Forward has been one of the most outspoken voices defending American troops and their mission, working to focus public sentiment on the need to provide comfort & support to the men and women in uniform who serve and sacrifice.

With President Obama expected to announce a token withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, the group is highly skeptical, fearing the move is entirely political rather than in the best interest of the soldiers or their mission.

Move America Forward representatives are available for comment in-person in the Orange County, CA area on Wednesday, or by phone at any time, and are especially prepared to make remarks on the areas of national security, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the global threat of terrorism, and of course our role in supporting our troops in all their operations to combat the threat of Al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations.
The group is making final preparations for their annual "Troopathon", an 8-hour live broadcast featuring top-tier celebrities and personalities that helps send care packages to soldiers stationed overseas. Confirmed guests include Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Dennis Miller, and many more.

Troopathon IV, titled "Remember Their Sacrifice", will be broadcast live from the Nixon Presidential Library on Thursday, from 1-9PM PST and can be seen at

I couldn't wait to get home to post my thoughts.

This is ceazy!

I don't know what percentage 5,000 is of all the troops in Afghanistan, but it has to be a sizeable number.

So, lemmee get this straight ... zero takes away x percentage of our troops and leaves the short handed ones in harm's way for a year?

Tell you what, zero ... only if you reduce YOUR staff and security by an equal percentage.

If I was in Afghanistan, I'd refuse to leave my buddies

5,000 is less than 5% and meaningless.

This “war” is pointless and we should be withdrawing 100% NOW.

Obama is probably doing most of the troops a favor if he draws down the mid-grade officer powerpoint rangers and the senior enlisted types who run around yelling at people for stupid sh1t.

Also, we should tell the Afghans 1 year. If they can’t get their act together in 365 days, screw them.
