Hawai’i Democrat Tulsi Gabbard spoke yesterday (May 22) on the House floor, warning that a section of a defense funding bill (H.R. 5515) may lead to war with Iran.

She didn’t mince words over Section 1225.

“Make no mistake – the authorization in Section 1225 of the underlying bill authorizes our U.S. military to go to war with Iran, which is one of the main reasons why I voted against this bill in committee. This provision authorizes the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of State to ‘develop and implement a strategy with foreign partners to counter the destabilizing activities of Iran.”
