Episode 16: Legal Legacy of 9/11, Part II
In the wake of 9/11, Congress passed the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF). Only one member of Congress voted against it, Congresswoman Barbara Lee. Join Russ Feingold, the only senator to vote against the USA PATRIOT Act, for his interview with Congresswoman Lee about what happened behind the scenes in the lead up to the AUMF and what it is like to be a dissenter in Congress. Together, they discuss the legacy of the AUMF and what Congress should do moving forward to implement the lessons learned from giving the executive branch a "blank check" authorization for military force.
