McConnell Shuts Down Notion That Obama Will Get War Authorization Against ISIS

McConnell Shuts Down Notion That Obama Will Get War Authorization Against ISISSenate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell appeared to dash any hope that Congress would formally authorize President Obama to wage war against ISIS. His remarks came as McConnell’s House counterpart, Speaker Paul Ryan, is examining the feasibility of passing such an authorization this year. “I think an AUMF, an authorization to use military force, that ties the president’s hands behind his back is not something I would want to do to a new president who’s going to have to clean up this mess,” he said.
