Can Obama wage war without consent of Congress?

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on September 13, 2014

barack-obamaWASHINGTON (AP) — On the cusp of intensified airstrikes in Iraq and Syria, President Barack Obama is using the legal grounding of the congressional authorizations President George W. Bush relied on more than a decade ago to go to war. But Obama has made no effort to ask Congress to explicitly authorize his own conflict.

The White House said again Friday that Bush-era congressional authorizations for the war on al-Qaida and the Iraq invasion give Obama authority to act without new approval by Congress under the 1973 War Powers Act. That law, passed during the Vietnam War, serves as a constitutional check on presidential power to declare war without congressional consent. It requires presidents to notify Congress within 48 hours of military action and limits the use of military forces to no more than 60 days unless Congress authorizes force or declares war.

The actress, who played the role of Shreyas Talpade’s younger sister in “Iqbal” was arrested from a luxury hotel at Banjara Hills in Hyderabad, according to the Indian Express.

I had to support my family and some other good causes. All the doors were closed, and some people encouraged me to get into prostitution to earn money,” India Today quoted her.
