Foreign Policy Focus #92 – Killing the 2001 AUMF

On Foreign Policy Focus #92, I discuss the attempt by Senator Rand Paul to repeal the 2001 AUMF. The 2001 AUMF was passed in the week after 9/11 and was intended to be a war resolution for Afghanistan. Since 2001, the AUMF has been used to justify military actions in at least 14 countries. The repeal vote failed but gained some traction. I also update Myanmar, Yemen, Syria, and Afghanistan.

Foreign Policy Focus #30 – More War, More Terror

On FPF #30, I discuss news stories of war and terror from around the globe. An ISIS terrorist attack occurred in France. The US is arming the Peshmerga for more war in Iraq. The White House and MSM continue to push the Assad used chemical weapons narrative, while scientists disprove it. In Afghanistan, the US is fighting ISIS near the site of the MOAB strike. I also update Kony, Egypt, Venezuela, and Yemen.
