"The White House responded Wednesday to a congressional outcry over U.S. military action in Libya, saying that President Obama has the authority to continue the campaign even without authorization from U.S. lawmakers. ... Because U.S. forces are not engaged in sustained fighting and there are no troops on the ground there, the White House says the president is within his U.S. constitutional rights to direct the mission on his own." [editor's note: Wasn't it inevitable, since Congress had been able to invade without formal declarations of war so many times, that some Chief Exec would bypass them entirely! - SAT] (06/15/11)
