Press Release

WASHINGTON− Today, President Obama sent his formal request for Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) against ISIS to Congress. In response, Rep. Chuck Fleischmann released the following statement.

"The combination of the rapid growth and barbaric violence employed by ISIS poses one of the greatest modern threats to the US, our allies, and global security and stability. We must learn from our past experiences and adapt our military strategy to deal with the evolving threats we face today. The President took the proper step in requesting an AUMF from Congress to take any substantial action against ISIS but he must outline and justify the force he plans to use."
