FPF #252 – How to Fight War in Congress

by | Sep 28, 2018

On FPF #252, I discuss how to fight war in Congress. Two different methods have been proposed to end wars, passing a more restrictive AUMF or by invoking the War Powers Act. I argue the War Powers Act method is more effective. 

I also break down an article by Turkey’s President on how to fix the UN.
