How Do We Stop Endless Wars?

Sam Sacks, The District Sentinel joins Thom. Members of the House tried Wednesday night to end the Authorization for Use of Military Force that has allowed for 15 years of endless U.S. involvement in the Middle East.

The final bill that was approved authorizes 551 billion dollars for Pentagon spending - plus an additional 59 billion dollars for the "overseas contingency operations” fund. But despite the fact that this bill allows the Obama administration to justify on-going US operations in Syria against the Islamic State - the Obama White House is threatening to veto this legislation.
