See my Whitehouse.gov petition below to call for an end to the illegal regime change operation in Syria
Russia’s actions in Syria have exposed President Obama’s illegal regime change operation in Syria in such a stark fashion everyone is kind of numbed by it all. Not only that, but the fact is, the Obama administration doesn’t even have congressional authority to be waging a war against “ISIS” and that is too say nothing of his lack of a mandate from the UN Security Council.
We are well into the second year of Barack Obama’s supposed “war against ISIS” and yet, the Obama administration still lacks an official authorization for the use of military forces in that fight.
“Congress is clearly divided. Many Democrats and some Republicans fear a fresh AUMF would lead to wider and more extensive military involvement, including a big build-up in ground troops. But many Republicans, and some Democrats, fear an AUMF would be too limited — tying the president’s hands in the fight against a significant new enemy.” NPR July 2015
In February of this year, the president’s office sent a letter to congress seeking a new authorization for the use of military forces so they could take a more active role in the fight against our construct, “ISIS”
There was absolutely no mention of forcing the legitimate government of Syria from office as a pretext to defeating “ISIS” in that letter.
