SUMMARY AS OF: 10/11/2002

Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002

Expresses support for the President's efforts to:

  • strictly enforce through the United Nations Security Council all relevant Security Council resolutions regarding Iraq
  • obtain prompt and decisive action by the Security Council to ensure that Iraq abandons its strategy of delay, evasion, and noncompliance and promptly and strictly complies with all relevant Security Council resolutions

Authorizes the President to use the U.S. armed forces to:

  • defend U.S. national security against the continuing threat posed by Iraq
  • enforce all relevant Security Council resolutions regarding Iraq

Directs the President, prior to or as soon as possible (but no later than 48 hours) after exercising such authority, to make available to the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President pro tempore of the Senate his determination that:

  • reliance on further diplomatic or peaceful means alone will not achieve the above purposes
  • acting pursuant to this joint resolution is consistent with the United States and other countries continuing to take necessary actions against international terrorists and terrorist organizations, including those who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001

Declares that this section is intended to constitute specific statutory authorization for use of the armed forces, consistent with requirements of the War Powers Resolution.

Requires the President to report to Congress at least every 60 days on matters relevant to this resolution.
