SITUATION: It’s obvious that the 2002 Iraq Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) is no longer needed, yet the potential for the AUMF to perpetuate forever wars is ever-present.
Regarding the 2002 AUMF, to date:
- The Biden Administration has affirmed that it is not relying on it for any ongoing operations
- Senators Todd Young (R-Ind) and Tim Kaine (D-Va) have introduced a bill in the Senate to repeal it
- In June, the House had bi-partisan support to include repeal in their version of the National Defense Authorization Act
YET IT HAS NOT RECEIVED A VOTE
ACTION: Contact your Senators today and tell them to support repeal of the 2002 Iraq AUMF, and BRING IT TO A VOTE THIS YEAR.
