Foreign policy analysts talked about the legality of U.S. airstrikes against ISIS militants in Iraq and Syria without a declaration of war by Congress. Topics included executive power and whether the authorization of military force passed by Congress in 2001 was applicable to the current circumstances in the Middle East. They also discussed criteria for judging whether military intervention was in America’s national security interests.

“War without Debate: The Constitution, Intervention, and the Strikes against ISIS” was held by the Cato Institute in the Cannon House Office Building. close
