Three presidents have used the 9/11 war authorization for 18 years, in 14 different countries, for more than three dozen different military actions. Trump is thinking about using it for war with Iran. Today, for the first time ever, the House repealed it.
Big news! The House just voted to repeal legislation that has been used by three presidents since 2001 to justify wars in 19 countries. https://www.fcnl.org/updates/breaking-house-passes-aumf-repeal-2133 … #EndlessWar #AUMF

BREAKING: the House just passed a bill that includes my language to sunset the 2001 AUMF after 8 months. For 18 years, the 2001 AUMF has been a blank check for endless war. This is a huge step toward reasserting Congress’ constitutional authority on war & peace. #StopEndlessWar
"Yet even as the administration continues to creep towards war with Iran... Congress has not passed any legislation to finally declare to the executive branch that such a move is off the table." -@hbrandonsmith of @FCNL https://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/is-the-white-house-plotting-an-end-run-around-congress-and-into-iran/ … #EndEndlessWar #AUMF

The history of Auschwitz is far more complicated than this as it combined two functions: a concentration camp and from March 1942 an extermination center. See our online lesson: http://lekcja.auschwitz.org/en_1/
This is where we're at. Auschwitz has to fact-check "the discourse."
In which my colleague @HBrandonSmith shares her 🔥🔥insight about what's going on with Congress & the AUMF. http://fortune.com/2019/06/18/trump-congress-war-on-iran/ …
People ask “how are you?” I lie every single time: “doing great!” “Doing good!” “You know, busy working!” The reality is every time a tweet comes, article is posted, an announcement: My knees shake. My eyes water. My voice breaks. This isn’t living.
