Must make you lefty cool-aid drinkers really proud.

In contending that the limited American role did not oblige the administration to ask for authorization under the War Powers Resolution, the report asserted that “U.S. operations do not involve sustained fighting or active exchanges of fire with hostile forces, nor do they involve U.S. ground troops.” Still, the White House acknowledged, the operation has cost the Pentagon $716 million in its first two months and will have cost $1.1 billion by September at the current scale of operations.

And in case any of you Obama-apologists are afraid to post, here, a set of these might make it easier.

For those you who have never seen what a principled liberal looks like, here's an example from the Lunatic Underground:

The War Powers Resolution is the law, and has been for almost 38 years; it is literally the statutory definition of how war is to be waged. Period. It's a brilliant piece of legislation, and specifically states what it determines "war" to be: the introduction of armed forces into hostilities or where they're imminent, so there's no weaseling about something not being quite a war. It specifically says when a President may initiate war: after a Declaration of War by Congress, after specific Authorization by Congress, or after we are attacked.

Clinton ratf..... the Resolution with Kosovo, hiding behind a very tenuous argument about NATO. He was the worst offender until Obama.

And to think we used to have posters whining about King George. :???: :???: :???:
