US Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman said the administration of President Joe Biden supports repealing the 2002 Iraq War Authorization Act, as it is no longer necessary to protect US interests.
“For the State Department, repealing the 2002 AUMF will not affect our diplomatic activities,” Sherman told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, according to Reuters (August 3, 2021).
“The ministry made it clear that we do not have ongoing military activities that rely solely on it and that its cancellation will have little impact on military operations,” she added.
