Round 2

Much has been made of the latest Sy Hersh piece warning of imminent war in Iran. Scary stuff. But it's all President this, White House official that, Pentagon this, military planners that. But going to war with Iran is not a choice that the President has the authority to make. We don't have to sit here wondering whether or not the President will do this or that. Congress still has to approve that sort of thing, right? We haven't completely discarded our constitution have we? Or will we soon be hearing that the War on Terror allows the president to direct our military as he sees fit?

This blog is based on a true story.
