Re: Obama Rules Out Charging C.I.A. Agents in Interrogations
Well....it is what it is, though "devistating" is exaggerated. But under Obama...it will continue to be considered a "war." The U.S. military will continue to deploy. And Democrats will flip and assume to support death and destruction under "their guy." No matter what it is called or what Congress supports, the mission will remain and the military will deploy.

For twelve years, America and the UN dictated the comings and goings of a "soveriegn" leader and chose the path of this "soveriegn" nation. But in 2003, politicians complained about Hussein's "soveriegnty" under Bush even though they remained quiet under Clinton throughout the '90s?
Clinton didn't need Congress to deploy the military in Haiti, Bosnia, Kosovo, or Iraq. And Bush didn't need it either.
