The House Has a Chance to Prevent War With Iran and Repeal the 2002 Iraq AUMF

On Thursday, the House will vote on two crucial amendments to prevent war with Iran.
Together, these pieces of legislation would go a long way in reasserting congressional authority over war.
- Rep. Ro Khanna’s (CA-17) measure would prevent funding for an unauthorized war with Iran.
- Rep. Barbara Lee’s (CA-13) measure would repeal the 2002 Iraq Authorization for Use of Military Force, which was recently invoked by the Trump administration as the legal basis for the assassination of Iranian general Qasem Soleimani.
In this moment of heightened tensions, every vote is critical. We must be unrelenting in calling on Congress to return to diplomacy, reassert its war authority, and prevent yet another endless war in the Middle East.
Each time Congress votes on resolutions to prevent war, they are sending an undeniable message: the American people do not support war with Iran.
