Members of Congress should insist that President Obama come to Congress for authorization as required by the U.S. Constitution before using military force in Iraq by signing the bipartisan letter led by California Democrat Barbara Lee and Virginia Republican Scott Rigell.
Some press reports have suggested that the U.S. could begin airstrikes in Iraq at any time. Our best opportunity to stop this is to press President Obama to come to Congress for authorization, as required by the U.S. Constitution and the War Powers Resolution, before using military force. Pressing the President to come to Congress was essential to stopping the U.S. from going to war in Syria last year.
California Democrat Barbara Lee and Virginia Republican Scott Rigell have initiated a bipartisan letter to President Obama, urging him to respect the Constitutional requirement to come to Congress for authorization before using military force.
