President Obama: Start the Afghan Peace Talks

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

President Obama should transfer Afghan prisoners from Gitmo in exchange for the release of Bowe Bergdahl and start peace talks to end the war.
There are currently 2,044 signatures. NEW goal - We need 3,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Afghan President Hamid Karzai is refusing to sign an agreement with the U.S. unless the U.S. agrees to transfer Afghan prisoners from Gitmo and start peace talks with the Afghan Taliban. These are just demands; they are stated U.S. policy. Transferring the Afghan prisoners is key to the return home of U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl and key to the beginning of peace talks to end the war. Peace talks are key to the safe withdrawal of U.S. troops. President Obama should implement the prisoner transfer without delay and start the peace talks without delay.
