#AfghanistanTuesday - Top Tweets - Dec 6

Our weekly tweet-a-thon is on an upswing! We had an especially busy day on #AfghanistanTuesday on December 6, and I'm tickled "pink" to see the heavy participation by folks from Code Pink!

(And remember: tweeting about the upcoming Guantanamo mobilization in January is now happening in a big way every Wednesday: see #closeGITMO!)

These are some of the #AfghanistanTuesday tweets from Tuesday, December 6, 2011, that were most highly retweeted:
