Senators Working On Updating Authorization Of Military Force

The U.S. sent troops into Afghanistan following the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and a Congressional Authorization for Use of Military Force, or AUMF, was put into effect. But there are questions about whether that AUMF can or should apply to the nation’s efforts in Syria, Iraq or Yemen.

Sens. Jeff Flake and Tim Kaine have been working on a new bipartisan authorization to update it.

To learn more about a possible new AUMF, we spoke with Jeff Kubiak. He is a senior fellow at ASU’s Center on the Future of War.
