30. Yes, that is exactly what those who oppose her vote are saying
The more bellicose language, using the word "combat" was removed and other wording changed. The argument still is that calling a segment of the Iranian army a terrorist organization is a bad precedent and the amendment is a move toward justifying military action against Iran.

Hillary voted for it; Biden and Dodd did not. There were reasons they didn't, so, if the amendment is supposed to be so harmless, why didn't HRC's Democratic allies (Biden and Dodd) vote along with her?
