House to debate repealing 2001 war authorization

Finally!  Someone has grown a set and stepped up to do the right thing……

After the 9/11 attacks the US Congress passed the 2001 war authorization…..and ever since it has been used for the constant wars that we are fighting for the last 15 years.

The House will debate an amendment on Wednesday whether to repeal a 2001 authorization for use of military force that the administration is using for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

The amendment, introduced by Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), would take effect 90 days after the defense bill is passed, and force the administration to seek new authority from Congress to wage its military campaign against ISIS.

The debate does not mean that it will be repealed…but at least it is a start to control the endless wars that we are now involved in fighting.

  1. And only 15 years overdue!

    There’s NO way this will pass, but at least somebody is finally talking about repealing this blank cheque made out to “MISC Industries”.

      1. It’s become so accepted, so unopposed, it’s been filed under “MISCellaneous”.
