What do you want to know about President Obama’s war resolution and ISIS? On the February 26th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the President’s request for Congress to authorize military actions against ISIS. For the past six months, the US and coalition forces have carried out more than 2,000 bombing raids against ISIS positions in Syria and Iraq. What has been the result of those bombings? And what are the details of this latest war resolution? What questions do you have and where do you stand? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Jennifer Daskal, professor of law at American University

 Jon Rainwater, executive director of Peace Action West
