If it Quacks like a War: Libya Passes the Duck Test
You will be relieved to know that President Obama didn’t violate the Constitution or the War Powers Act when he launched us into a third totally unnecessary war because he is telling Congress the Libya action isn’t really a war. From Politico:
White House officials told Democratic and Republican congressional aides Tuesday that the U.S. is not at war with Libya and, without laying out a timeline, that the president hopes to hand over control of coalition military operations in the next few days.
This revelation is quite shocking to me because it seems I have spent the last 27 years in ignorance not knowing the actual meaning of the word “war.”
