Do we need to repeal the 2001 resolution post-9/11 authorizing unlimited action?

     Congress vote for a 2001 resolution authorizing military action for the attacks on 9/11
According to Rep. Barbara Lee, "That resolution was a blank check...and if you read the resolution, it was not targeted toward al-Qaeda or any country. All it said was--and it said the president is authorized to use force against any nation, organization or individual he or she deems responsible or, you know, connected to 9/11. That ... wasn't a declaration of war, yet we've been in the longest war in American history now, 10 years, and it's open-ended. I want to repeal that authorization, because that authorization gives any president the authorization to go to force--to use force, to use military action, when in fact Congress must declare war if we're going to do this."

Do you want this congressional act repealed immediately and replaced with one with more restraint--returning war approval powers to Senate (congress)?

I don't know.

It is not relevant. The executive branch just does what it wants anyway.
