AUTHORIZATION FOR USE OF MILITARY

FORCE AGAINST IRAQ

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2002

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
COMMITTEE ON INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS,

Washington, DC. The Committee met, pursuant to call, at 5:10 p.m. in Room 2172 Rayburn House Office Building, Hon. Henry J. Hyde (Chairman of the Committee) presiding.

Chairman HYDE. The Committee will come to order.

Pursuant to notice, I now call up House Joint Resolution 114, Authorization for the Use of Military Force Against Iraq for purposes of markup and move its favorable recommendation to the House.

It is the intention of the Chair to recognize Members to make opening statements on the resolution tonight. I do not intend to recognize anyone for the purpose of offering an amendment, and accordingly, I do not anticipate any votes in the Committee this evening.

The Chair will now recognize Members to strike the last word on the pending-I am sorry. The Chair will recognize Ranking Member Tom Lantos to strike the last word.

Mr. LANTOS. Thank you, Mr. Chairman.

Let me first commend you for calling today's markup of this historic resolution. You have insisted, with my full support, that our Committee's prerogatives be respected.

I think every Member of our Committee on both sides of the aisle deeply appreciates it. I know we will have a lively and spirited debate, both today and tomorrow.

I also support your decision to allow every Member to make an opening statement. The question of authorizing the use of force against Iraq is one of the most important issues that Members of Congress will vote for, and I think every Member must be given a full opportunity to express his views.

Let me also say at the outset, Mr. Chairman, that not only every Member of this Committee, but every Member of Congress in both the House and the Senate is viewed by me as a patriot whose views are fully entitled to respectful listening; and I deeply deplore some recent statements questioning the loyalty of some Members of Congress because of their views. This is a democracy where the widest diversion of views prevails. Our ability to express our views freely and openly and without anybody questioning our loyalty or patriotism is critical.
