    The actions of both Bush and Clinton violated the war powers act. You need to read it before you claim to know what it says. The entire premise behind the war powers act was to require authorization by congress before initiating an attack. It was meant to be a check on the powers of the President to prevent an unwarranted attack by a President gone awry. The only time a President is authorized to attack without approval of congress is if the President is responding to an attack on the United States.

    Several presidents used the War Powers Act to take actions in and emergency. Why can't you understand that?

    The "emergency" MUST be us getting attacked, or imminent threat of us being attacked. When has that criteria been met?

    Where does it authorize the President to do that in the War Powers Act? Let me save you the trouble....it doesn't except in a case where the United States is attacked first, the President has the authority to act without congressional approval. But in the case of a US First strike, the War Powers act requires an authorization of Congress, for the very reason that we don't want to live in a country where one individual has the power to make a unilateral decision to attack another country. The War Powers act is a check on the power of the President.
