Last week the U.S. House of Represenatives passed a resolution by 366-30 stating that current U.S. military actions in Yemen are not authorized under current legislation. It highlights the fact that the United States is operating on a Congressional authorization of military force (AUMF) that is almost two decades old.

Hosted by Colm Quinn.
