    Could you provide a link to this 2007 Obama response you refer to about the US joining in a NATO action?

    I did in the OP. The fact that you didn't read it says a lot about how serious I should take you.

    The OP is about the US attacking another country, it says nothing about a NATO action.

    Then we are done. You have an IQ problem or a political hack problem. I think it is the latter.

    Quote the section where he addresses a NATO action if you can.

    If Congress doesn't vote on authorization, then Obama doesn't have authorization, by default. Vote, or no vote, if Congress doesn't authorize him to continue operations, then he will be in violation of the War Powers Act if he were to proceed with any operations that may be going on.

    If they don't they certainly should because the law appears to be broken.

    But of course there are others beside Kucinich, who is, of course, a member of the Democrat Congressman.

    A NATO, rather than unilateral, action does not relive the CinC of his responsibilities under the WPA, and does not modify the substance of The Obama's statement.
