Balanced News: 20 years after US Iraq invasion, Senate acts to end war authorization

Our 'quick read' news summary

The US Senate voted on Thursday to revoke the 2002 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) that was used to go to war with Iraq. This vote comes over a decade after the war’s official end, and it follows efforts by President Joe Biden to have this AUMF repealed. This AUMF has been used to justify several military actions in the past decade, like allowing US troops in Iraq to retaliate against Iran-allied militias that have fired rockets at bases housing US troops. The biggest risk this AUMF presents is that people will use it more broadly than originally intended.
