WATCH/READ: Arizona's "Other Senator" Re-Urges Congress To Do Their Constitutional Duty and Authorize Use of Military Force Vs. ISIL

Jeff Flake - Arizona's "other Senator" - took to the Senate floor this afternoon to re-urge Congress to do its Constitutional duty and pass an AUMF ("Authorization for Use of Military Force") against the ISIL (aka ISIS) terrorists.

Sens. Flake (R-AZ) and Tim Kaine (D-VA) followed Sen. John McCain's stemwinder against President Obama and his foreign policy, leading to Flake's recognition as "the other Senator from Arizona."

Kaine and Flake had introduced the AUMF (read, below) in June, but it went nowhere. In the wake of the ISIL terror attack on Paris and its other recent killings, Flake and Kaine are rebooting their effort.

The Congressional AUMF would last for three years and would repeal the 2002 Iraq AUMF that has been used by both the Bush and Obama Administrations.
