WILL CONGRESS BECOME ACCOMPLICES IN OBAMA’S ILLEGAL WAR?
By J.B. Williams

ongressional leftists like Dennis Kucinich and Maxine Waters have falsely claimed that every war since WWII was an “illegal war.” So when they accuse their leader Barack Obama of single handedly initiating an illegal war on Libya, it is like the boy who cried wolf too often.
But in this case, the always anti-war left has it exactly right, proving that even the nutty left will get one right sooner or later. Like predicting rain, sooner or later it will rain and leftists finally find themselves in a flood.
Hours after US tomahawk missiles rained down on Libya, I explained in detail how Barack Obama had just become a war criminal. Twenty-four hours later, anti-war Democrats were out in force accusing Obama of launching an illegal war and they were right this time.
I also asked where congressional Republicans were on the matter and now we know. Senators McCain and Graham (a JAG lawyer) are right where we have become accustomed to finding them, on the wrong side of the law, the constitution and the nation, running cover for their buddy Barack.
I accused Obama of being a traitor, a stooge of the United Nations rather than a US Commander-in-Chief, and – “one who betrays another’s trust or is false to an obligation or duty” – but not a single congressional Republican seems to agree.
