The House Armed Services Committee has approved an amendment Wednesday to limit the authority of President Donald Trump in withdrawing troops from Afghanistan.
Because of this approval, the National Defense Authorization Act amendment would require several certifications before the US military can further drawdown in Afghanistan as the new amendment was approved 45 to 11, Comedian Jimmy Dore cited The Hill.
He condemned the actions of Democrats, and said, “We've been in Afghanistan for 19 years! We’ve kids fighting in Afghanistan that weren't even born when this war started!...our top generals openly admit they don't have a clue why we're even in Afghanistan.”
The Senate on wednesday botched an attempt by senator Rand Paul who proposed a huge-scale defense policy bill on withdrawing US troops from Afghanistan. “The proposal would remove troops from Afghanistan within a year and give them a 2,500 dollar bonus.

Sixteen democrat Senators voted against the National Defense Authorization Act amendment --- Dianne Feinstein, Richard Blumenthal, Tom Harper, Chris Coons, Maggie Hassan, Doug Jones, Angus King, Joe Manchin, Bob Menendez, Chris Murphy, Jack Reed, Jackie Rosen, Jeanne Shaheen, Kristen Sinema, Mark Warner and Sheldon Whitehouse.
