9/11 Thirteen Years Later

On September 10, 2014 President Obama explained without demagoguery his intention to destroy the extremist force that is commonly called ISIL or ISIS.  There are criticisms: particularly his broad assertion of Presidential power was criticized by constitutional law scholar Bruce Ackerman, Andrew Sprung said the President "phoned it in", Jonathan Hafetz lamented the "elasticity of the post 9/11 AUMF", and Republican leaders in Congress and at Fox News were generally shrill when not being silly.
I have to say..I am not worried about this expansion of the claim of authority/  The Marines landed on the shores of Tripoli and the republic stood. - gwc
