The U.S. needs to use its military power to destroy ISIS. Doing so under the 2002 authorization to use force against Iraq sends the wrong message. Clearly identifying the target of these actions puts the world on notice that America intends to defeat ISIS.
America is already undertaking military action against ISIS without this new authorization. The existing authorization from 2002 serves the same purpose and going through the process anew would only make things more complicated.
