Libyan bombing 'unconstitutional', Republicans warn Obama --US public opinion split as Republicans claim Obama's use of military force in Libya is 'an affront to our constitution' [It is, but the hypocritical sacks of sh*t had no problem when Bush did it though, right?] Republican members of Congress are claiming the conflict in Libya is unconstitutional because Barack Obama failed to seek Congressional approval. President Obama sent a letter defending the Libya intervention to members of Congress on Monday in an effort to quell a growing rebellion over his failure to consult the Senate and the House of Representatives before embarking on the third major military action of his presidency. Under the US constitution, Congressional approval is required for declarations of war.
