Passed over the veto of President Nixon in 1973, the WPR requires the president to report to Congress when US forces are introduced into hostilities, and to terminate the use of force within sixty to ninety days unless Congress authorizes the president’s action. While denying its constitutionality, presidents have interpreted the WPR’s requirements to apply only when there is a risk to US personnel.
The panel exploring the role of Congress features Tom Bossert, President of Civil Defense Solutions, a government services and private consulting company based in Arlington, Virginia; Kevin Gronberg, former senior counsel for the US House of Representatives Committee on Homeland Security; Jason Healey, director of the Cyber Statecraft Initiative at the Atlantic Council; and Derek Khanna, former professional staffer for the US House of Representatives Republican Study Committee. The panel will be moderated by Harvey Rishikof, chair of the American Bar Association Advisory Standing Committee on Law and National Security and co-chair of the ABA Taskforce on Cyber and Security.
