To require the Secretary of Defense to submit a report to Congress outlining the United States exit strategy for United States military forces in Afghanistan participating in Operation Enduring Freedom.
This is a really interesting piece of proposed legislation. It basically forces the government to come up with a plan on leaving Afghanistan by December 31, 2009. At least it’s a baby step towards something positive. The sad part is most bills do not pass the committee review step (which is where HR 2404 is currently at). On top of that hundreds of bills are written up and proposed but only a few are actually passed. It’s like buckets and buckets of water being filled into an 8 ton tank and only a few drops are released.
The pitfalls of a Democratic system.
InshaAllah it passes.
