House Panel Advances Bill to Repeal 2002 Iraq AUMF

On Thursday, the House Foreign Affairs Committee advanced a bill that would repeal the 2002 authorization for the use of military force (AUMF) that was used for the 2003 invasion of Iraq. The bill will now advance to the House floor.

The panel approved the legislation that was led by Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) in a vote of 28 to 19 that fell along party lines. Two Republicans joined the Democrats in supporting the bill, Reps. Ken Buck (R-CO) and Peter Meijer (R-MI).

“Iraq is a security partner of the United States. Saddam Hussein is long gone. No current operations depend on 2002 AUMF,” said Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-NY).
