Lawmakers demand ISIS vote

26 Aug, 2014

Lawmakers from both sides, President Obama and military leaders are weighing options to expand airstrikes against ISIS. Congress also returns early September. Senator Tim Kaine:

This fight, and the threat posed by ISIL, is serious enough that Congress and the administration must be united on U.S. policy going forward. I urge the administration to use the next two weeks to clearly define the strategy and objectives of its mission against ISIL, then bring it to Congress for a debate and authorization vote.

Kaine also stressed a new vote of authorization is required since the previous authorization of the Iraq war is obsolete.
