A secure and stable Iraq is in America's national interest, and Iraq's best chance for long-term stability is to develop democratic institutions that protect the civil, political, and human rights of the Iraqi people. Congress should not interfere with ongoing military efforts to secure and stabilize Iraq or legislate restrictions on the use of U.S. military force.
