House Votes To Repeal 2002 Iraq War Authorization | MSNBC
They should repeal the Patriot Act.
@Leonidas The Great I agree. There’s only like 1 or 2 things I support
OSINT = open source intelligence = it is free and easy.
@J M M when the government uses taxpayer dollars to buy information from Google Facebook etc. It’s not free my friend..
@Leonidas The Great It is free. Why are they paying for what is free?
100% agree. The Patriot Act allowed for enhanced spying on American citizens and restricted freedoms. Anything but patriotic.
The repeal is just a wee bit too late don’t you think?
Better late than never.
Better before thousands are needlessly killed than late.
@Splatter Panda Trump had already called for the removal of troops from Afghanistan before he was defeated in the last election.
But just in time for biden
are you stupid…..close to a million dead and 10000 maimed and wounded…..
and some can say….this is classified as war crimes
One of Congress’s biggest mistakes.
ask Biden why he voted for it
This is a really important pressing matter….. what is wrong with you ❄🐑
The AUMF was abused almost like a Constitutional amendment giving war powers over the the Executive. I’m surprised Congress hasn’t taken it back before now.
It’s rare that they ever get it right…why would they start now?
The Congress of 2021 to undo what the Congress of 2002 has done?? Anybody with the ability to understand how the US government works in terms of war can understand why this is idiotic.
Does anyone know why we were at war with Iraq? What did they do to us?
They borrowed money and built up their cities and infrastructures. Built up an internet platform separate from our. Bush sent troops in to collect on the debt.
@Oppressed Speaker of truth that’s nit why they said in 02/03. It can’t be that simple, this was personal not business. If it were business why lie? They would have told us that. So I don’t think so. I think it must be personal. No One in the media seems interested in why and who and how we got into this war, nor what exactly we won. We can see and feel what we lost. Not what we won.
The real reason that was sold to the American people was that saddam had WMD precursors and we needed to take him out of power. Keep in mind, when this was sold, we were still finding human remains from 9/11. I’m not justifying or rebuking the Iraq war, I’m simply giving you an answer as I see it.
@Ashley Horne the reasons they lied about are:
Thousand of dox and emails re yellowcake, forged
Photo of attah in Europe, not him
Photo of wmd in Iraq, fake photos
9/11, nope neither Iraq nor Afghanistan, they were Saudi
Two collaborators they used as witnesses
I know all that. I’m asking since all the reasons were lies, how does Rachel
Maddow don lemon or Hannity ever ask what are the actual real reasons?
The reasons will personal reasons, what are they? Why does no one care they can simply lie us into war? It’s disgusting.
They can make us do anything. Seems like. Even forget we have no reason for this war. How can we overlook all that? Fascinating.
only 20 years late? That’s congress for you.
Trillions of dollars and thousands of lives thrown away.
But it’s about time Congress takes back their power, no president should have a blank check on declaring war or attacking another country.
oh good! now all of those dead Iraqi’s and US military will spring back to life.
For the House, this is a decisive action that is too late in the coming. It won’t stop what is coming. Nothing can stop what is coming. Nothing.

I disagree with Congress on this one
I’m vexed here.
