"Congress’s Embarrassingly Empty (National Security) Record," Just Security, April 29, 2016.
Congress has overwhelmingly failed to fulfill its legislative obligations on a wide range of issues, from the national debt to the nomination of a Supreme Court justice. Most importantly, however, is Congress's complacency on issues related to national security. A new Authorization for the Use of Military Force is overdue. That would make sure too broad a definition of the 2011 AUMF doesn't get continuously exercised for years to come.
