This is the May 21, 2014 hearing on "Authorization for Use of Military Force After Iraq and Afghanistan" held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. From the Opening Statement of Robert Menendez: "The 9/11 AUMF [Authorization for Use of Military Force] has served the United States well. It has provided broad authority for the United States to pursue and dismantle al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and a foundation to authorize U.S. operations against al-Qaeda elsewhere, and against groups and individuals which have operationally associated themselves with al-Qaeda, like Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula--an expansion that the Congress and U.S. courts have endorsed. That said, with the winding down of significant U.S. military activities in Afghanistan by the end of this year, it is appropriate to begin reassessing the 9/11 AUMF, in light of new circumstances and new threats that have evolved over time." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Bob Corker, Mary E. McLeod, Robert Menendez,Michael B. Mukasey, and Stephen W. Preston.
