The New Diplomatic Offensive for Iraq Act (H.R. 3797) (text of the bill) is an opportunity to put vigorous diplomacy at the center of efforts to end the Iraq war. H.R. 3797 would make it U.S. policy to engage in the inclusive regional negotiations needed to facilitate U.S. redeployment from Iraq and stabilize Iraq and the region.
The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Washington Office for Advocacy has chosen to pursue an intensive campaign to pass this bill. We believe that as a religious movement that strongly supports diplomacy, multilateralism, and being in right relationship we are uniquely situated to support and advocate for this bill.
H.R. 3797, the “New Diplomatic Offensive for Iraq Act,” would require the president to develop and institute a regional diplomatic plan for the Middle East modeled on the diplomatic recommendations of the Iraq Study Group. The bill is the vehicle most likely at present to gain the support of the House for the inclusive regional diplomacy recommended by the Iraq Study Group as essential to facilitate U.S. withdrawal from Iraq and stabilize Iraq and the region in the aftermath of U.S. withdrawal.
