McCain and Obama are both calling for more troops in Afghanistan. But the Rand Corporation (the Pentagon’s largest think-tank) has published a study showing that a military response to terrorism is actually the least effective approach and police and political responses are more effective: http://www.rand.org/pubs/research_briefs/RB9351/index1.html
We urge you to call or email the campaign offices of both Senator McCain and Senator Obama and tell them you want a surge in diplomacy, not war.
Obama Campaign – 866-675-2008
McCain Campaign – 703-418-2008
