Another E-mail to the White House: Out of Afghanistan

The time has come, as the majority of Americans now realize, to end the war in Afghanistan with all due speed, consistent with the security of our forces.

No question America cannot walk away from a constructive role in the region, particularly with regard to efforts to influence rational and balanced policies in Pakistan, but prosecuting a vastly expensive war in Afghanistan is not in our interests.

Sec. of State Clinton should publicly call for a regional summit, including even Iran, China, and Russia, to try to work out a security regime for the region that DOES NOT include U.S. troops. Talk to Lawrence Wilkerson, whose ideas are certainly not isolationist, but who is someone who knows the history and geopolitics of the area and recognizes that it's time for a complete rethink.

Thank you.
