MoveOn.org Opposes the White House’s AUMF Request

MoveOn.org Civic Action Campaign Director Jo Comerford on the White House’s request for Congress to authorize military force against ISIS:
 
“President Obama’s proposed Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) is a recipe for endless–and costly–war. It does nothing to repeal the sweeping 2001 AUMF, which 14 years later, is still being used to justify ongoing military action.
 
“Congress must not abdicate its responsibility to oversee U.S. war-making by giving the president a blank check to pursue multiple years of war, in Iraq, Syria, or any nation, against an open-ended array of possible targets. And it certainly must not allow the president to leave open the real possibility of deploying U.S. ground troops, as the proposed AUMF does.
 
“MoveOn members call on members of Congress to reject the proposed AUMF — and will mobilize to ensure this message is heard.”
