Obama possesses the authority to order military strikes without Congress?Submitted by EGarrett01 on Wed, 09/11/2013 - 05:20
This might be a dumb question, but I thought the President had to get approval from congress before he could order military strikes against foreign countries? I suppose I'm missing something (maybe he already received permission in some other context?), but I don't think Obama could, for example, watch a Youtube video from Russia he didn't like and immediately snap his fingers and order drones to bomb Moscow.
What exactly was being claimed here by our Statist-Idiot-In-Chief?
