On Wednesday, the Senate voted down an amendment that would have forced Congress to pass a new law giving the US authorization to wage war against ISIS and combat threats overseas. Republican Senator Rand Paul's amendment to the annual defense spending bill would have repealed the military authorization passed in the days after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and the 2002 authorization for the Iraq war within the next six months. Paul said before the vote. "We have fought the longest war in U.S. history under an original authorization to go after the people that attacked us on 9/11. That war is long since over, the war has long since lost its purpose, and it is long time that we have a debate in Congress about whether we should be at war or not."
