Dear Friend of Liberty,
You may have heard today’s prominent news stories about President Obama’s military commander in Afghanistan, Stanley McChrystal, and his request to greatly increase the presence of U.S. armed forces there.
The Libertarian Party opposes this plan. We want to end the war, not escalate it.
