According to CNN, “the Trump Administration’s deployment of additional US troops to Iraq and Syria – and the prospect of increased operations in Yemen and elsewhere in the Middle East- will ramp up pressure on Congress to formally authorize the war against ISIS, according to lawmakers pushing for action on Capitol Hill.”  But before escalating the war, we need to repeal the disastrous, out of date statute that has helped to justify military action since 2001.  For more information on the AUMF and why it needs serious reform (at the very least) check out this article from International Policy Digest.
