Legislation To Withdraw Troops From Iraq
Congressman Kucinich worked closely with Republicans Walter Jones and Ron Paul, and with fellow Democrat Neil Abercrombie, to craft the first bipartisan bill to end the war in Iraq and bring our troops home.
The bill would require the President to initiate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq no later than October 2006. This would be 10 months after Iraq completes the final phase of establishing a democratic constitutional government, and giving ample time for training Iraqi security forces to assume the responsibility of defending the country.
In December, Congressman Kucinich requested the Congressional Research Service (CRS)compile a report on military construction in both Iraq and Afghanistan. On April 11, 2005, Congressman Kucinich received the final report and is now releasing it to the public.
CRS found "projects that suggest a longer-term U.S. presence" in Iraq. These included $214 million for Balad Air Base and $49 million for the Taji Military Complex. This is the first congressional report that identified specific locations in Iraq where the U.S. is possibly constructing a permanent military presence in Iraq.
