Baghdad The US State Department confirmed that the Administration of President Joe Biden supports repealing the 2002 Iraq War Authorization Act, as it is no longer necessary to protect American interests.”

“For the State Department, revoking the 2002 AUMF will not affect its diplomatic activities,” Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

She added: “The Ministry has made it clear that we do not have ongoing military activities that depend only on this law, and that its abolition will have little impact on military operations.”
