Washington, DC – The Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) applauds legislation introduced by a bipartisan quartet of U.S. Representatives to end US military backing for the Saudi-led war in Yemen.
“As Quakers, we support legislation to end American involvement in the Saudi-led war that is slaughtering men, women, and children in Yemen. By refueling Saudi and Emirati jets as they bomb civilians, the US is enabling the world’s largest humanitarian crisis,” said Diane Randall, Executive Secretary of the Friends Committee on National Legislation. “We applaud Representatives Ro Khanna, Adam Smith, Mark Pocan, and Thomas Massie for their bipartisan initiative to reassert Congress’ constitutional authority to end this illegal war.”
By invoking the War Powers Resolution, the Khanna-Smith-Pocan-Massie legislation sets the stage for a House floor vote in November on ending the unauthorized war. The legislation has the support of House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer and three ranking members of relevant committees: Rep. Smith of the House Armed Services Committee, Rep. Eliot Engel of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Jim McGovern of the House Rules Committee. Last March, 44 senators voted in support of similar legislation ending American involvement in the Yemeni civil war.
The following post is sponsored by The Committee for Responsible Foreign Policy (CRFP).
The bipartisan initiative Committee for Responsible Foreign Policy will host an event this week examining the role of constitutional war powers in military interventions abroad, as the United States faces increasing scrutiny for its support for the wars in Yemen and Syria.
The event, which will take place in Washington, DC, near Capitol Hill, will also examine how defending constitutional war powers can prevent human suffering and protect religious liberty.
The event takes place on the symbolic date of the 17th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks, which prompted U.S. military intervention in Afghanistan and provided policymakers with a casus belli to invade Iraq two years later.
