Obama - Another contradiction = war criminalSubmitted by Brian Middleton on Tue, 03/22/2011 - 03:38
Obama stated in his Boston Globe interview in 2007:
"The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.
As Commander-in-Chief, the President does have a duty to protect and defend the United States. In instances of self-defense, the President would be within his constitutional authority to act before advising Congress or seeking its consent. History has shown us time and again, however, that military action is most successful when it is authorized and supported by the Legislative branch. It is always preferable to have the informed consent of Congress prior to any military action."
Get that out so people can see he is no better than Bush... I can't stand the guy..
