Abstract

Congress should reject open-ended war and embrace a return to peace. Instead of expanding the Authorization for the Use of Military Force, Congress should consider repealing it once the withdrawal of our combat troops from Afghanistan has been completed. Law enforcement, intelligence gathering and other nonmilitary counterterrorism tools ought to be at the forefront of our fight against terrorism.
