The Senate Foreign Relations Committee held a hearing to consider a joint resolution that would repeal the 1991 and 2002 Authorizations for Use of Military Force (AUMFs) against Iraq. Lawmakers heard testimony from several Biden administration officials including Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman, State Department Acting Legal Adviser Richard Visek and Defense Department General Counsel Caroline Krass. In her opening testimony, Deputy Secretary of State Sherman stated that “the Biden-Harris administration believes the 2002 Authorization for the Use of Military Force against Iraq has outlived its usefulness and should be repealed.” Other topics of discussion included U.S. military operations in Iraq, U.S. policy toward Iran, and responding to imminent national security threats. close
