White House ‘Committed’ to Working With Congress to Check Presidential War Power After Syria Strike

From White House press secretary Jen Psaki

March 06, 2021

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on Friday that the Biden administration is “committed” to working with Congress to replace the current presidential war power with “a narrow and specific framework,” to ensure the government both protects Americans and stops endless wars.

“Last week’s airstrikes in Syria show that the Executive Branch, regardless of party, will continue to stretch its war powers. Congress has a responsibility to not only vote to authorize new military action but to repeal old authorizations that are no longer necessary. The 1991 and 2002 AUMFs that underpinned the war against Iraq need to be taken off the books to prevent their future misuse,” Kaine said on Wednesday.

The Senate passed a similar resolution last year intended to require then-President Donald Trump to be authorized by Congress before taking any military action against Iran. It was vetoed by Trump.
