Today’s Action: End our Endless War. Repeal the AUMF!

The United States entered into an endless war on September 14th, 2001. On that day, Congress issued an Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), which gave then-President Bush the ability to use force against nations, organizations, or people he determined were in any way involved in the September 11th attacks. War, without Congressional declaration.

Presidents Bush and Obama used the AUMF at least 37 times in 14 countries to justify military force, often against groups that did not even exist on 9/11. Trump brought the number of countries up to at least 20, used the AUMF to keep troops in Syria and Iraq indefinitely – also uninvolved in the 9/11 attacks – and to assassinate Iranian General Qassem Soleimani.

Then last week, President Biden bombed Iranian-backed militia groups in eastern Syria, killing at least 22. The strikes were justified as retaliation against recent attacks on US forces in Iraq that were ordered out by Iraq’s parliament over a year ago…an order ignored by both Trump and Biden.

We MUST end Endless War. And that means repealing the AUMF, which gives our presidents the singular ability to order death and destruction en masse.

Call or email your Members of Congres and demand they repeal the 2001 and 2002 AUMF.

Repealing the AUMF extends far beyond political party favoritism. Though it initially supported trigger-happy Bush, it was just as embraced by Obama, who launched ten times more drones than Bush. Trump then beat Obama’s numbers, and it’s difficult to believe Biden won’t follow suit like those before him unless he is specifically stripped of these powers NOW.

Hundreds of thousands of civilians dead and millions displaced, the consequence of two decades of unfettered American military action. The first step to stopping endless war is repealing the AUMF.

End our Endless War. Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and urge them to repeal the 2001 and 2002 AUMF.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling President Biden and Congress to close Guantanamo Bay, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
