Obama To Request Authorization for Iraq and Syria War

In his first public statement after the midterm elections, President Barack Obama said he would ask Congress for a new authorization of force to fight the Islamic State, the jihadist group currently operating in Iraq and Syria. The authorization the White House is seeking will replace the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force against al Qaeda that provided the legal basis for the invasion of Afghanistan and the 2002 authorization that gave legal cover for the invasion of Iraq. The administration had relied on the previous authorizations for the current campaign against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria despite protests from members of both parties in Congress.
