General Allen stated “The option of this President was not the option of his Generals.” War is not community organizing and this President should listen to the recommendations of the Generals and senior military on the ground! The welfare and morale of our troops are at stake here as well as the success of their mission! So many Americans and Afghans have given their lives to beat this ruthless enemy and there is no doubt that their sacrifices have kept us safe! Getting this mission right should be this President's priority, not poll numbers and his re-election.
Lastly, The Band of Mothers stand in support of the release of our Soldiers incarcerated at Leavenworth. As has been reported, we are allowing terrorists to sign a Pledge and then we release them (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/24/world/asia/24reconcile.html?src=mv.) or now, we just let them go:
Let our Sons go too! They certainly deserve and should be shown the same forgiveness and treatment afforded to the terrorists.
We hope you will join us on the Cannon Building Corner on July 25th, 26th and 27th, from 9am to 5pm. Location: the corner of New Jersey & Indepence Avenue, Washignton, DC.
