McGovern, Obey Lead House Showdown on Afghanistan War

Tonight, the House of Representatives is expected to vote on the
Pentagon's request for $33 billion for open-ended war and occupation
in Afghanistan. While press reports suggest that when the dust
settles, the Pentagon will have the war money, it's likely that a
record number of Representatives will go on the record in opposition
to open-ended war and occupation.

Representative Jim McGovern [D-MA] and Representative David Obey
[D-WI] are expected to introduce an amendment on the war supplemental
that would require President Obama to present Congress with a
timetable for military redeployment from Afghanistan.
