MOAB Statement

Statement on The Use of MOAB in Afghanistan

For Immediate Release

April 13, 2017

The unprecedented use of a MOAB, (Mother of All Bombs), escalated our involvement in the decade-and-a-half long war in Afghanistan. 

The American people deserve an explanation for the escalation of military force in Afghanistan by President Trump. 

Furthermore, the people of this nation need to hear and understand a long-term strategy to defeat ISIS.

No president should have a blank check for endless war, especially not a president, who is acting without any checks or oversight from a one-sided controlled Congress. 

We need to immediately repeal the '2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force' --this will put real restraints on potential warmongering.
