Repeal the Iraq War Authorization!

The U.S. invaded Iraq 11 years ago. President Bush’s unnecessary war of choice cost the lives of 4,400 U.S. troops, an estimated 500,000 Iraqis, and $2 trillion. Authorizing the Iraq war was one of the worst mistakes Congress ever made. While our troops have all come home, the law that authorized that disastrous war remains on the books.

Tell Congress: It’s time to end the war by repealing the 2002 Iraq war authorization. 

The Iraq war started after Congress authorized George W. Bush to unleash America’s military might by passing the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002, a law that remains in place. In an effort to take the use of force in Iraq off the table for good, Congresswoman Barbara Lee has introduced a bill (H.R. 3852) to repeal the war authorization.

Ask your Representative to cosponsor Congresswoman Lee’s bill to repeal the authorization of the Iraq war.

In the past, war authorizations were often left un-repealed, as presidents could be trusted to come back to Congress if they thought new war authorities were needed. Unfortunately, the past 13 years have demonstrated that times have changed. From the drone war to revelations of massive surveillance of Americans, the danger of relying on the good faith of our leaders is self-evident. Iraq remains a violent, unstable nation and a testament to the failed military adventures of the Bush years. Some in Washington are even calling for America to send our military back into Iraq to deal with the continuing violence. That’s why we need your voice to put pressure on Congress to un-authorize the Iraq war.

Demand that Congress right one of its worst wrongs by repealing the Iraq war authorization.
