Response to Gregorian (Reply #91)

97. Excuse me? I think you've got that ENTIRELY backwards. """End of discussion."""

In the world I live in, 2001 comes BEFORE 2002~!!!



And, to quote YOU "So let's get THAT fact straight!"



How special that you've managed to twist the space-time continuum to suit your desires!

Here are some links for your much-needed edification:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Authorization_for_Use_of_Military_Force_Against_Terrorists

The Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), Pub. L. 107-40, codified at 115 Stat. 224 and passed as S.J.Res. 23 by the United States Congress on September 14, 2001, authorizes the use of United States Armed Forces against those responsible for the attacks on September 11, 2001. The authorization granted the President the authority to use all "necessary and appropriate force" against those whom he determined "planned, authorized, committed or aided" the September 11th attacks, or who harbored said persons or groups. The AUMF was signed by President George W. Bush on September 18, 2001. As of December 2015, the AUMF remains in effect and provides Congressional authorization for the use of force against ISIS and other Islamic militant groups.[1]


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iraq_Resolution

The Iraq Resolution or the Iraq War Resolution (formally the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002,[1] Pub.L. 107–243, 116 Stat. 1498, enacted October 16, 2002, H.J.Res. 114) is a joint resolution passed by the United States Congress in October 2002 as Public Law No: 107-243, authorizing military action against Iraq.[2]

91. The IWR is all that matters.

Without the IRW there is no AUMF. Period. End of discussion. So let's get that fact straight.

Then we can move on to the AUMF, which had he not voted for would have seemed ridiculous.

I stand by my original statement.


Still standing by that original statement, are you?
