I am very angry, and it is time to take the War on Women to the Taliban and shove it down their throat! I call on President Obama to commit to hunting down every Taliban just as he hunted down Osama Bin Laden. Then, our task will be done in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Yesterday, the Taliban shot a 14 year old girl in the head for speaking out and championing girls going to school and for liking school. This 14 year old child is mature and brave beyond her years. If we are going to commit to being in Afghanistan until 2014; it must be to ensure that courageous little girls such as Malala Yousafza. Her story is so impressive and moving that President Obama's Middle East Special Envoy met with her to listen to her in 2010. If there was ever a justification for needed to justify to my fellow Liberals our continued presence in Afghanistan this is it. Share this tragedy with the troops as well Mr. President. If ever a motivator is needed for their continued sacrifice, as a Veteran myself, I can tell you that the attempted assassination of a child is one hell of a motivator and it will get them angry and fired up to bring our mission there to a successful close.
I wanted to let you know about a new petition I created on We the People,
a new feature on WhiteHouse.gov, and ask for your support. Will you add your
name to mine? If this petition gets 25,000 signatures by November 10, 2012,
the White House will review it and respond!
We the People allows anyone to create and sign petitions asking the Obama
Administration to take action on a range of issues. If a petition gets
enough support, the Obama Administration will issue an official response.
