Abstract:

This report lists relevant congressional roll call votes for several major instances in which U.S. Armed Forces have been sent abroad in potentially hostile situations. These votes are representative of those that have a direct correlation to issues affecting policy and funding of troops abroad, often in the context of the War Powers Resolution, continued presence or withdrawal, or use of force. The cases of Lebanon 1982-1983, Grenada 1983, Panama 1989, the Persian Gulf War 1990- 1991, Somalia 1992-1995, Haiti 1993-1996, Bosnia 1992-1998, Kosovo 1999, the terrorist attack against America 2001 including the use of U.S. Armed Forces in Afghanistan, and the use of U.S. Armed Forces against Iraq 2002-present are examined. Those roll call votes that are available online since 1990 in the House and 1989 in the Senate are linked. This report will be updated as events or legislation warrant.
