Pelosi on AUMF: ‘This is a Limitation’ Compared to Iraq, Afghanistan AUMFs

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said an Authorization for Use of Military Force against the Islamic State terror group submitted to Congress Wednesday was a “limitation” on President Barack Obama compared to 2001 and 2002 AUMFs for the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, respectively.

“It’s a very, very, very serious responsibility to authorize the use of force and put our men and women in uniform at serious risk,” Pelosi said.
