As the Constitution outlines, Congress should be the branch of government that declares war. For too long, congressional leaders have outsourced this critical job to the executive branch with little oversight.
For 16 years, the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) that authorized action against the perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks has been distorted and expanded by the executive branch to justify military action in unrelated conflicts around the world.
It's time for Congress to do its job: Repeal the overly broad 2001 AUMF and vote on a new, narrowly defined AUMF that includes geographic limitations and a sunset provision.
Add your name to tell Congress to stop endless war.
