Rebekah Kennedy on War & Peace

Green Senate challenger


I will never vote to give another dime to fight the Iraq war

The War in Iraq is a disaster that never should have happened. Every day our troops stay in Iraq costs American and Iraqi lives without any benefit to the American or Iraqi people. As your U.S. Senator, I will do everything in my power to bring our troops home and to make sure we fulfill our obligations to our returning veterans and their families. America has had enough of Politicians who say they support the troops, then turn a deaf ear to the need of our wounded service members and to the families still waiting for their loved-ones to come home. As your U.S. Senator, I will never vote to give another dime to the President to fight the Iraq war and I will never vote to cut another dime from Veterans Healthcare or any other service essential to our troops and their families.

Withdraw from Iraq

Q: Do you support or oppose the statement, "Replace US troops with UN in Iraq?"

A: Do Support. If the U.N. is willing to take on this role and the Iraqi people and/or their elected parliament are willing to have them in this role, I will support that. Regardless of what, if anything, is to replace it, the U.S. has been requested by a majority of the Iraqi parliament to withdraw, and should do so.
