Watch live today as Weekend Edition Sunday Host Rachel Martin moderates a discussion about the U.S.'s divided position on the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) as part of The National Conversation series at the Wilson Center.

The law, which authorizes U.S. forces to act against terrorists post-9/11, is up for debate, and this afternoon, The National Conversation brings together a panel of experts from Congress, the U.S. military and the CIA to round out a lively discussion on the topic.

You can stream the event live, right here from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. (ET). The video will be also archived on this page following the event. Join the discussion on Twitter with @TheWilsonCenter.
