A panel headed by James Baker and Warren Christopher questions weather congress should have more responsibility when the U.S. goes to war.
The next time the president goes to war, Congress should be consulted and vote on whether it agrees, according to a bipartisan study group...
Here's an idea. Why doesn't the President and congress do exactly what the constitution says they have to before sending us to war? Isn't it article 1, section 8, clause 11 that reserves the right to declare war with congress?
The only power the constitution gives to the President for making war is "leaving to the Executive the power to repel sudden attacks." Clearly the framers intended for the executive powers to be strictly limited to an immediate, defensive stance, not one of offense.
