AFL/CIO Calls for Return of Troops from Iraq

It was the first time in the federation's 50-year history that the AFL-CIO has taken a position squarely opposing US foreign policy or military action.

"An unending military presence will waste lives and resources, undermine our nation's security and weaken our military," the AFL-CIO stated in a resolution adopted at the federation's convention in Chicago Thursday.

The resolution called for proper equipment to protect the troops, an expansion of veterans benefits and "a commitment to bring them home rapidly."

The federation, which has nearly 11 million members, also blasted President George Bush for misleading the public.

"The American people were misinformed before the war began and have not been informed about the reality on the ground and the very difficult challenges that lie ahead," it said. "It is long past time for the Bush administration to level with the American people and for Congress to fulfill its constitutionally mandated oversight responsibility."

The move comes at a time when public support for the war, and for the Bush administration, is dwindling.
