Successive unconstitutional precedents on war powers have brought us to this: a President will initiate military action on a foreign power without cause or congressional approval.
The decision was taken by the President when he was out of the country. The President did not consult with Congress. Obama did not even notify Congress.
At a press conference today, President Obama said the action was necessary because a UN resolution "was a mandate" for conducting acts of war on the nation of Libya.
This man is a constitutional lawyer?!!!?
Now, a President with the approval of a vote in the UN Security Council has the authority to use American military resources to conduct foreign wars. If that is his position, impeachment proceedings should begin at once.
