October 10, 2002 Congress Passes “Authorization to Use Military Force Against Iraq”

As you can see here, the vote was mostly partisan in the House and the Senate.   President Bush signed it into law 6 days later.   The U.S. invasion of Iraq began 6 months later in March 2003.  Unfortunately, most of the justifications for this war resolution, given to the Congress and to the American public, later turned out to be exaggerated or completely false.
