Lawmakers Question Biden’s ‘Dangerous’ & ‘Unconstitutional’ Ongoing Occupation Of Syria

On Thursday, a bipartisan group of 30 House representatives penned a letter to President Biden questioning US airstrikes and the US military presence in Syria.

In February and June of this year, the US bombed Shia militia targets in Syria and cited Article II of the Constitution as justification for the strikes. In the letter led by Reps Jamaal Bowman (D-NY), Peter DeFazio, and Nancy Mace (R-SC), the lawmakers call the idea that the Constitution justifies such strikes a “dangerous claim.”

“We are deeply troubled by your administration’s dangerous claim that Article II of the Constitution permits you to bypass Congressional authorization to perform strikes inside Syria,” the letter reads.
