June 29, 2023 | The “End Endless Wars Act,” S. 1872 was introduced in the Senate on June 6th and referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations. The bill would repeal the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), which has been used to unconstitutionally engage the USA in over 20 wars. Article I, Section 8, Clause 11 of the U.S. Constitution grants the power to Congress, not a president to declare war.
“If there exists any desire to reclaim our Constitutional power and send a message to the world that we are nation of peace, Congress should pass this bill and repeal the 2001 Authorization for war. After all, the 2001 AUMF never intended to authorize worldwide war, all the time, everywhere, forever,” said S. 1872 sponsor Dr. Rand Paul.
Countless lives and trillions of dollars have been lost as a result of the 2001 AUMF.
