No More Excuses! Adam Smith, use your power as chair of the House Armed Services Committee to actually help end the war in Yemen
Washington congress-member Adam Smith has been the powerful chair of the Armed Services Committee since 2019. He has added language to the Defense Authorization Act to end US funding for the war in Yemen, knowing full well that the Senate version will restore the funding, and always allowing the funding to be restored when the two versions are reconciled. This way he can have his cake and eat it too — claiming to be fighting to end the war and suffering, while not expending any political capital to make it happen.
Enough is enough!
As part of the January 25 International Day of Action on Yemen
, we demand that Adam Smith do the right thing for once, and use his power and his position and work with the Democratic controlled Senate and the Biden administration to immediately
stop this genocidal war — because without US logistical and intelligence support, the Saudi-led effort will come to an end.
