Ashton Carter, Obama’s new Secretary of Defense and a former Goldman Sachs adviser and member of the Council on Foreign Relations, wants to expand the ISIS war beyond Syria and Iraq.
Carter told Congress it should grant the Pentagon the authority to strike the U.S.-trained terror group without any limits.
“The proposed AUMF wisely does not include any geographical restriction, because ISIL already shows signs of metastasizing outside of Syria and Iraq,” Carter said.
Obama introduced the new Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) in November.
The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Tennessee Republican Senator Bob Corker, said he does not know of any Democrats who support Obama’s war authorization request.
Republicans, on the other hand, believe the request is too limited.
The request for a three year authorization includes a vaguely defined limit on the use of ground troops.
As previously noted, the Obama administration designed the language of its unconstitutional AUMF to be vague.
John Earnest, the White House spokesman, said the proposal was left undefined “because we believe it’s important that there aren’t overly burdensome constraints that are placed on the commander in chief.” …
Clearly this bill is designed to allow the “commander in chief” to wage war domestically in the name of fighting its own creation. This is the price for allowing the 9/11 scam to go unchallenged.
