The Bill of Rights is part of the United States Constitution. The United States Constitution directs congress (with the authority) to declare war. Congress hasn't declared war since World War II. When one's assumptions rest on a foundation of sand, it seems anything can be justified.

If Leon Panetta and General Martin Dempsey can testify before a United States Senator that the use of our military is determined by the UN, NATO, the Arab League and International Law, and that if they think congress should be consulted they will make that determination, when John McCain declares the United States a battlefield, and Lindsay Graham states if a person (on American soil) asks for a lawyer tell them to shut up, they have dishonored and violated their oath to the United States Constitution. Some might call it treason.

One is left to wonder if the UN, NATO, and the Arab League declared war against the United States, would these same people stand up and guard our liberties and our Constitution? After listening to General Martin Dempsey, Leon Panetta, John McCain, Lindsay Graham and Carl Levin on the floor of the Senate and in committee, I wouldn't trust they would look out for anyone but themselves.
