Janice Hahn on War & Peace

 


Responsibly bring home troops from Afghanistan & Iraq

Janice wants to see us get out of the wars we are currently involved in. She believes that it is important to bring our troops home in a tactical, responsible, and strategic manner so that we maintain the security of our nation and the security of our allies. Currently there are more than 140,000 US and NATO troops in Afghanistan, and 50,000 in Iraq. Janice wants these numbers to be responsibly reduced, to speed up our transition out of these areas, particularly from Iraq. Janice strongly believes that national security has to be the top priority for our government, and she believes that we need to do everything we can to prevent Al Qaeda from attacking the United States and our Allies. But national security also requires investment at home in education, infrastructure, research and development, clean energy, hi-tech, and space enterprise. We need to refocus our efforts abroad on rebuilding at home, creating more jobs, and securing our future for the next generation of Americans.

Terminate funding for Iraq War on Dec. 31, 2011.

Hahn signed Iraq Withdrawal Accountability Act

A BILL: To prohibit the use of funds to maintain United States Armed Forces and military contractors in Iraq after December 31, 2011.

    Congress makes the following findings:
  1. The Agreement Between the US and the Republic of Iraq states that the deadline for withdrawal of US Armed Forces from Iraq is December 31, 2011.
  2. The American people support the withdrawal of US Armed Forces from Iraq by the agreed upon deadline of December 31, 2011, and during the campaign of then presidential candidate Barack Obama, the President stated that he would end the war in Iraq and bring our troops home.
  3. It is estimated that the US will save tens of billions of dollars by bringing all US Armed Forces and military contractors safely home from Iraq by the agreed upon deadline of December 31, 2011.
  4. Leaving US Armed Forces in Iraq beyond the deadline is not in US security interests, strategic interests, and economic interests.

Defund US military presence in Afghanistan.

Hahn co-sponsored Responsible End to the War in Afghanistan Act

Nothing in this Act shall be construed to prohibit or restrict the use of funds available to carry out diplomatic efforts or humanitarian, development, or general reconstruction activities in Afghanistan.
