House Votes No to Ending Afghanistan War

On Wednesday a debate was forced on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives concerning a resolution to end the war in Afghanistan, the Los Angeles Times reports. H. Con. Res. 248 failed by a vote of 356 to 65. The resolution refers to section 5(c) of the War Powers Resolution of the U.S. Code (50 USC 1544).

The debate featured strong opinions from both opponents and proponents of the Afghanistan War (read the LA Times article). These included the resolution's sponsor, Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), and House Committee on Foreign Affairs Chairman Howard L. Berman (D-Calif.).
