Revise Sweeping Post 9/11 Powers: Experts 2013

2013 2013 2013 en. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), ranking member on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, says Congress needs to reassert its authority and take ownership of American foreign policy.<br /><br />No one expected a law passed right after 9/11 to last more than a decade and change how America handles military force. Only three days after terrorists attacked America on Sep. 11, 2001, Congress passed the “Authorization for Use of Military Force” that gave the president extraordinary powers.<br /><br />While the nation was in crisis, the AUMF passed the Senate, 98 to 0, and the House 420 to 1. The initial purpose was to enable the administration to pursue the attackers in Afghanistan.<br /><br />Now in the year 2013, some members of Congress in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, both Republicans and Democrats, want to reconsider the law that granted unprecedented war-making powers to the president and a diminished role for the Congress. The law has never been revised or rescinded even though the enemy and the nature of conflict have arguably changed. <a href="http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/177990-revise-sweeping-presidential-military-powers-say-experts/">More</a><br> 2013 2013 2013 <br>en.
