In my previous post about Medea Benjamin’s change of emphasis on Afghanistan, it  was suggested here and elsewhere that the Christian Science Monitor had misrepresented her words, and that her stance, as well as that of Code Pink’s, remains in favor of immediate withdrawal.

Add The SF Chronicle to the defamation.  According to comments attributed to her, she doesn’t want more troops sent, and she wants an immediate “commitment to come home.”  But she acknowledges that we need “an exit strategy” must have “several components to it.”

And they want women involved in the peace talks.  I’m not clear if they would make that a condition of troop withdrawal.
