Authorization For Use Of Military Force
A Bipartisan Group Of Senators Just Released A New Authorization For The War On Terror
For more than 16 years, the US has been waging the global war on terror using legal authority passed by Congress just after 9/11. Critics say that legislation is too broad and that administrations have used it to usurp Congress’s authority.
The Senate Just Killed An Effort To Rethink How The US Fights Terrorism
The Senate stopped Sen. Rand Paul from getting a vote to repeal the authorizations the US has used as the legal basis for the war on terror for more than a decade. It would have been the first time in 15 years that the Senate has taken a vote on war authorization.
