5/7/21 Heather Brandon-Smith on the Effort to Repeal the 2002 Iraq AUMF

by | May 9, 2021 | Interviews

Scott talks to Heather Brandon-Smith of the Friends Committee on National Legislation about the effort to repeal the 2002 Iraq Authorization for Use of Military Force. Although the 2002 AUMF has been less widely cited as grounds for America’s ever-expanding wars in the Middle East than the 2001 version (which authorized the war in Afghanistan), it has been used to justify the war against ISIS in Iraq and the Trump administration’s assassination of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, among other operations. Brandon-Smith is hopeful that the Biden administration is serious about rolling back some aspects of the war on terrorism, and she and her colleagues at FCNL are working to push the anti-war momentum in the right direction.

Discussed on the show:

Heather Brandon-Smith is Legislative Director for Militarism and Human Rights at the Friends Committee on National Legislation. Prior to joining FCNL, Heather served as the Advocacy Counsel for National Security at Human Rights First. Follow her on Twitter @HBrandonSmith.
