H.Amdt.482 to H.R.2685. Rep. Barbara Lee’s (D-CA) amendment would have blocked funding for the 2001 AUMF after December 31, 2015. Lee explained that the 2001 AUMF had (at the time) been used “more than 30 times to justify military action and other activities, including warrantless surveillance and wiretapping, indefinite detention practices at GTMO, targeted killing operations using lethal drones, and the open-ended expansion of military operations abroad, which have nothing to do with the original congressional intent.” Failed, 157-270.
