In War Criminal News . . .

John Yoo criticizes the Obama administration for not going through proper process in deciding on the legality of their actions in Libya. Of course, Obama, who taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago, is more qualified than most presidents to make up his mind on these issues.

And therefore?

Yes, Obama is well aware of the War Powers Act of 1973 and has decided, according to the New York times ( that the act doesn't apply because the US isn't engaged in "full-blown" hostilities against the Libyan regime.

The Obama administration is worse than the Bush administration when it comes to the launching of thoroughly imperialist war. The Bush administration sought Congressional approval, i.e. it engaged in a democratic pretext as it moved to assert the interests of the American bourgeoisie. The Obama administration doesn't even bother.
