December 11, 2001      Complete Iraq timeline

       The House International Relations Committee drafts House Joint Resolution 75 which states that if Iraq refuses to allow UN inspectors to investigate freely in Iraq, the refusal will constitute an “act of aggression against the United States.” The bill is sponsored by Representatives Lindsey Graham, Porter Goss and Henry Hyde. A different version of this resolution is passed by the House on December 20 (see December 20, 2001). [World Net Daily, 12/11/01; H.J Res 75]
People and organizations involved: Porter J. Goss, Henry Hyde, Lindsey Graham
          

December 20, 2001      Complete Iraq timeline

       House Joint Resolution 75 is passed by the House and sent to the Senate where it is referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations. It is not as strongly worded as the initial draft (see December 11, 2001), which had included a provision stating that the refusal to admit inspectors would constitute an “act of aggression against the United States.” The final version instead reads: “Iraq's refusal to allow United Nations weapons inspectors immediate, unconditional, and unrestricted access to facilities and documents covered by United Nations Security Council Resolution 687 and other relevant resolutions presents a mounting threat to the United States, its friends and allies, and international peace and security.” The bill is sponsored by Representatives Lindsey Graham, Porter Goss and Henry Hyde. [H.J Res 75] This bill will die in the Senate. The congressional bill that conditionally authorizes Bush to take military action against Iraq is not passed until October 11, 2002 (see October 8 and 11, 2002).
People and organizations involved: Lindsey Graham, Henry Hyde, Porter J. Goss
          

February 22, 2005      Plans to use force against Iran

       Five US senators—John McCain, Hillary Clinton, Susan Collins, Lindsey Graham, and Russ Feingold—visit Kabul. McCain tells reporters that he is committed to a “strategic partnership that we believe must endure for many, many years.” He says that as part of this partnership, the US would provide “economic assistance, technical assistance, military partnership, ... and ... cultural exchange.” He also adds that in his opinion, this would mean the construction of “permanent bases.” The bases would help the US protect its “vital national security interests,” he also says. However a Karzai spokesman reminds the press that the approval of a yet-to-be-created Afghan parliament will be needed before the Afghan government can allow the bases to be built. McCain's office will later amend the senator's comments, saying that he was advocating a long-term commitment to helping Afghanistan “rid itself of the last vestiges of Taliban and al-Qaeda.” That does no necessarily mean that the US will have to have permanent bases, the office explains.
