The American people overwhelmingly agree:
ZERO Troops in Afghanistan! Bring the War Dollars Home!
All of our troops can finally come home from Afghanistan in 2014, as promised, UNLESS the
U.S. & Afghanistan governments sign the Bilateral Security Agreement (BSA). The U.S.
government is practically begging the Afghanistan government to let the U.S. military remain in
Afghanistan until at least 2024! The American people in overwhelming numbers say NO! Bring
the troops home! Bring the war dollars home!
WE THE PEOPLE know the decision allowing American troops to remain in Afghanistan should not
belong to either the new Afghanistan President or President Obama - it belongs to the American
and Afghan people.
We must tell President Obama:
“THE CORRECT NUMBER OF TROOPS LEFT IN AFHANISTAN IS ZERO!”

Summary: S.Res.347 — 113th Congress (2013-2014)
Introduced in Senate (02/06/2014)
Declares that it is U.S. policy: (1) that, in coordination with the government of Afghanistan,
North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) member countries, and other allies in Afghanistan,
the President shall complete the accelerated transition of U.S. military and security operations
to such government and redeploy U.S. Armed Forces from Afghanistan by December 31, 2014;
and (2) to pursue diplomatic efforts leading to a political settlement and reconciliation of the
internal conflict in Afghanistan.
Expresses the sense of the Senate that, should the President determine the necessity to
maintain U.S. troops in Afghanistan to carry out missions after December 31, 2014, any such
presence and missions should be authorized by a separate vote of Congress not later than June
