Congress to Rein in AUMF's (Authorization for Use of Military Force) "Associated Forces" (VIDEO)

News from Capitol Hill indicates that Congress is ready to put the first limits in more than a decade on the Authorization for Use of Military Force.

In 2009, the Obama Administration expanded the definition of the AUMF to include not just al-Qaeda, but "associated forces" as well.

Congress may take up this issue in the new National Defense Authorization Act, requiring the President to provide more information on what exactly "associated forces" really are.
