Subject: Congresswoman Woolsey Calls for Repeal of President's Iraq WarPowers
- Says Congress never authorized an occupation of Iraq -
Washington, D.C. - One of the most outspoken critics of the war in Iraq,
Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey (D-Petaluma) today introduced H.R. 5875, legislation
that would repeal the President's War Powers for the Iraq War. While the
Congress authorized President Bush to wage war against Iraq in 2002, the
original authorization did not anticipate an open-ended U.S. military campaign
against Iraq, or the occupation that currently exists.
"Six weeks after we invaded Iraq, President Bush stood aboard an aircraft
carrier before a banner that read 'Mission Accomplished,' declaring that 'major
combat operations in Iraq are over,' Woolsey said. "From that moment on, we
were no longer fighting a war, but rather participating in an occupation. You
can not win an occupation!"
Not only did Congress not authorize the long-term occupation of Iraq, but our
troops' presence is contributing to the state of civil war that exists in the
country. According to the United Nations, the violence in Iraq is increasing,
with an average of 100 Iraqis dying every day.
"Rescinding the President's War Powers in Iraq is the least that we can do for
our troops, and for their families who anxiously await their return," Woolsey
said. "With over 2,550 brave men and women having given their lives, and
thousands seriously wounded, how many more must die before we put an end to this
"By repealing the Iraq War Powers, Congress would resume its Constitutional role
overseeing the use of military force, and would reassert its authority by
bringing our troops home."
Woolsey was joined by 18 other original co-sponsors of the legislation, in no
particular order they include: Barbara Lee (CA); Dennis Kucinich (OH); Maxine
Waters (CA); Maurice Hinchey (NY); James Moran (VA); Major Owens (NY); Cynthia
McKinney (GA); Fortney "Pete" Stark (CA); Bob Filner (CA); Julia Carson (IN);
Chaka Fattah (PA); Carolyn Kilpatrick (MI); Marty Meehan (MA); Donald Payne
(NJ); Jose Serrano (NY); Danny Davis (IL); David Wu (OR) and Sheila Jackson Lee
