3/9/18 Eric Eikenberry on the Senate Joint Resolution to end American support for the War in Yemen

Eric Eikenberry of the Yemen Peace Project joins Scott to discuss Senate Joint Resolution 54, which invokes the War Powers Resolution of 1973 to end U.S. aid and support the bombardment of Yemen by coalition forces. Eikenberry explains why, in addition to ending the catastrophic bombardment of Yemen, the invocation of the War Powers Resolution is so significant—it’s never happened before. Eikenberry then explains why the AUMF gets tied up in the language of Joint Senate Resolution 54 and has stopped Rand Paul in particular from sponsoring the bill.

To support Senate Joint Resolution 54 the number to call is: 1-833-786-7927.

Eric Eikenberry is the Director of Policy & Advocacy at the Yemen Peace Project and an advocacy associate at Americans for Democracy & Human Rights in Bahrain. Follow him on Twitter @eric_eikenberry.
