Green Party opposes threats of U.S. intervention in Syria
and Obama’s ‘blank check’ abuse of military power
• Greens cite conflicting accounts regarding which side used chemical weapons and U.S. attempt to stymie the U.N. probe
WASHINGTON, DC — The Green Party of the United States opposes threats by the Obama Administration to launch an attack on Syria and said that an order to attack would be a serious abuse of presidential power. Greens called for repeal of the Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) passed by Congress on September 18, 2001, which the two most recent presidential administrations have used to justify attacks on other nations.
