Freshman Congressman Justin Amash (R-MI) has written an op-ed strongly arguing against the radical expansion of war currently under consideration in Congress. Language inserted into the Fiscal Year 2012 National Defense Authorization Act by Rep. Buck McKeon (R-CA) would replace the existing Authorization for the Use of Military Force passed immediately following the September 11 attacks in 2001. Rep. McKeon’s new authorization would allow for worldwide, endless war and forever remove the need for Congressional authorization of military force.
Rep. Amash has joined a growing, bipartisan group of Congressmen in standing up in opposition to this unprecedented expansion of war.
