End the devastating, mismanaged war in Iraq

The devastating, mismanaged war in Iraq has tarnished America’s image in the world and made us less safe at home. Jeanne Shaheen will work to end the war in Iraq and bring our troops home safely and responsibly as soon as possible and begin the hard work of rebuilding our alliances and restoring America’s reputation in the world. Jeanne believes we need a firm date to begin withdrawing our troops and a plan for a phased withdrawal that protects the safety of our men and women in uniform.

Sanctions on Iran to end nuclear program.

Shaheen signed Iran Refined Petroleum Sanctions Act

    Expresses the sense of Congress that:
  1. diplomatic efforts to address Iran's illicit nuclear efforts, unconventional and ballistic missile development programs, and support for international terrorism are more likely to be effective if the President is empowered with explicit authority to impose additional sanctions on the government of Iran;
  2. US concerns regarding Iran are strictly the result of that government's actions; and
  3. the people of the United States have feelings of friendship for the people of Iran and regret that developments in recent decades have created impediments to that friendship.
    States that it should be US policy to:
  1. support international diplomatic efforts to end Iran's uranium enrichment program and its nuclear weapons program;
  2. encourage foreign governments to direct state-owned and private entities to cease all investment in, and support of, Iran's energy sector and all exports of refined petroleum products to Iran;
  3. impose sanctions on the Central Bank of Iran and any other Iranian financial institution engaged in proliferation activities or support of terrorist groups; and
  4. work with allies to protect the international financial system from deceptive and illicit practices by Iranian financial institutions involved in proliferation activities or support of terrorist groups.
