Neocons and Democrats Work to Squelch Anti-war Measures in Congress
April 1, 2011
As the mad bombers at NATO engage in a public relations stunt in response to the fallout from the slaughter of innocent Libyan civilians, here in the United States a few dignified members of Congress are attempting to put a halt to the illegal war.
Obama’s order to bomb Libya was obviously unconstitutional. He did not consult Congress let alone seek a declaration of war, as spelled in Article One, Section Eight of the Constitution. Democrats want to pass some sort of after the fact resolution signing off on Obama’s war, but they fear opponents will take advantage of any such hearings to denounce the president and his illegal act.
In response, Obama’s commissariat insist they don’t need to follow no stinkin’ Constitution. “Obama administration officials claim they don’t need Congress’ permission to launch what they describe as kinetic military activity,” reports Fox News.
