NPR.org » Congress Leaves Without OK For Libya Operation First up: that isn't Fox News or Worldnetdaily, that's a story from NPR Second: I'm not a Conservative attack dog. I voted for Obama in 2008. I've lol'ed at most if the impeachment threads here. Forget the R or D aspect of the story. The current US president has taken military action in a sovereign nation without an Act of War and is now in violation of the law of the land. That's at the very least grounds for a Constitutional showdown. Truth be told it is an impeachable offense. He should have sought Congressional authorization by now. He didn't. So now we have a real mess.
