Dear CODPINK supporter,

CODEPINK seeks the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq and the restoration of full Iraqi sovereignty. However, we also believe that supporting efforts such as Representative Lynn Woolsey's amendment (below) moves us closer to the reality of immediate withdrawl.

Woolsey's Amendment:
SEC. 1223. WITHDRAWAL OF UNITED STATES ARMED FORCES  FROM IRAQ. It is the sense of Congress that the President should -
(1) develop a plan as soon as practicable after the date of the  enactment of this Act to provide for the withdrawal of United States Armed  Forces from Iraq; and

(2) transmit to the congressional defense  committees a report that contains the plan described in11 paragraph  (1).

WE HAVE A DEADLINE...MOVE INTO ACTION NOW!! According to Woolsey's office, the amendment  will be voted on the House floor this evening during debate of the Defense Authorization Bill. If the Woolsey amendment is adopted, it will open the debate about Iraq and how to move towards total  Iraqi sovereignty and U.S. withdrawal. It is urgent that you help move this debate forward by contacting your representative TODAY and urging him or her to vote "YES" on the Woolsey amendment.
