It's Not Up to the President to Impose a No-Fly Zone Over Libya


Upon taking office, President Obama immediately withdrew opinions written by John Yoo and others making these extreme claims [of executive preeminence]. And his Justice Department has refrained from asserting unilateral presidential power in the conduct of the wars Obama has inherited... 

[But] If he acts unilaterally, he will be consolidating one of the worst aspects of the Bush era, and set a precedent for further abuses by future presidents.

(I'm not suggesting, like authors of above article, that Congress should consider declaring war on Libya, but war criminals like Yoo, and Stephen "Bush was right" Hadley, have no place influencing public policy).
