What Happened to Clinton’s War Powers Promise?
Mother Davis searches the Library of Congress and wonders,
Whatever happened to Hillary Clinton‘s promise to introduce legislation to revoke the war powers granted to George W. Bush back in 2002? Those war powers, which Senator Clinton voted in favor of, allowed President Bush to begin the invasion and occupation of Iraq.
It’s been over a month now since Hillary Clinton and Senator Robert Byrd made their announcement that they would introduce a measure to revoke war powers. Clinton declared, “It is time to sunset the authorization for the war in Iraq. If the president will not bring himself to accept reality, it is time for Congress to bring reality to him.”
Still, the promised legislation to revoke the war authorization in October of 2007 has not appeared. Senator Clinton has not introduced the legislation, and neither has Senator Byrd.
Why not? Does Hillary Clinton no longer believe that “it is time to sunset the authorization for the war in Iraq”?
Wondering what the dewey decimal number for broken promises is,
