WEBCAST LIVE at Woolsey.house.gov
Rep. Lynn Woolsey, the first Member of Congress to call on the President to develop and implement a plan to bring U.S. troops out of Iraq, has requested hearings in the U.S. House International Relations Committee and the U.S. House Armed Services Committee to discuss plans to bring the troops home while helping the Iraqis regain control over their country and their future.
Since her requests of the President and the Republican controlled Congress have been ignored, Congresswoman Woolsey is organizing an informal hearing to discuss strategies to achieve military disengagement while still playing a constructive role in the rebuilding of Iraqi society.
