April Fools Obama


You know how candidate Obama though president launching war without congressional authorization was illegal?

As it turns out, Obama was wrong. Or was he?

Foreign Policy Reports:

“Apparently Obama’s lawyers told him he could do it, and he liked their advice: “Prior congressional approval was not constitutionally required to use military force in the limited operations under consideration.” We know this from the opinion drafted by U.S. Justice Department lawyers on April 1, which was publicly released on April 7, on the legality of military operations in Libya following the U.N. Security Council’s go-ahead.”

April 1st!!! Obama wasn’t wrong, his lawyers was just pulling an April fools on him.
