House Votes to End Iraq War

by | Feb 3, 2020

On FPF #450, I discuss the House vote to repeal the 2002 Authorization for Use of Military Force. The bill was passed in 2002, allowing President Bush to start a war with Saddam’s regime in Iraq. Saddam was hung in 2006 and, his army disbanded. However, both presidents Obama and Trump invoked the AUMF as giving them “authority” to carry out military operations in Iraq. The House vote is an attempt for Congress to regain some control over the president’s near-endless war-making powers.
