Membership Roster: the Out-of-Iraq Congressional Caucus
Source: Out-of-Iraq Caucus website
The Out of Iraq Caucus was created in June 2005 to unite members of the House in favor of returning American troops from Iraq. The group's chair, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said the following when announcing its formation:

"The Out of Iraq Congressional Working Group is a newly formed effort whose sole purpose is to be the main agitators in the movement to bring our troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan. Our efforts will include the coordination of activities and legislation designed to achieve our goal of returning our troops home. Through floor statements, press conferences, TV and radio appearances and other actions, we will provide leadership for the American Public who has been waiting too long for our collective voices against the war."

In a speech on the floor of the House shortly after the group's first meeting, Waters emphasized that the group was not calling for an exit from Iraq on any specific date. Rather, she said it more generally opposed a continued U.S. presence in the country. Waters promised that the caucus would do the following towards this aim:

  • Provide support to other members of Congress and caucuses who wish to leave Iraq.
  • Provide support to citizens and organized national groups who wish to leave Iraq.
  • Organize workshops and seminars for the purpose of encouraging an exit from Iraq.
  • Travel across the country to explain the rationale for their position.
  • Be available to meet with the families of service members who have been killed or injured in Iraq.
