AUMF: Another Way

The South Carolina Advocacy Team requests the following actions.  Senator Tim Scott’s birthday is  September 19th. That is on a Sunday, so please call his office on Friday 9/17. Tell the staff that you are a constituent and sending birthday best wishes, and ask that he request that SJ Res 10 come to a vote. The number is (202) 224-6121.  This is not a group call, but a call-in action.

Please remember that if you get an LTE published, the SC Advocacy Team would like to send it to FCNL and we can share it on the Columbia Friends  website. 

The South Carolina FCNL Advocacy Team is focused on repealing the Authorization for Military Force (AUMF) for Iraq so that military actions and assassinations cannot occur without the approval of Congress.   Please see the full text of the bill here:   https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/senate-joint-resolution/10/text .   The following letters to the Editors are in support of this effort.    

Carol’s Letter to Editor

I  know a lot of Americans are saddened by the recent tragedies in Afghanistan. Unfortunately we (the United States government) are responsible for much of the mess.

One thing that could help prevent this from happening again is the passage of Senate Joint Resolution 10.

This bill targets 1991 and 2002 authorizations that allowed the president to use military force against Iraq..

Kudos to bill sponsor Sen.Tim Kaine,D.VA. I hope our congressional delegation gets on board with this legislation.  It’s time for peace and diplomacy not aggression or war.
