Abstract

Earlier this week, President Obama announced that he would ask for a Congressional vote on any potential military intervention in Syria. Ryan C. Hendrickson writes that Congress did not force Obama to seek legislative approval, and that even before the announcement many of Congress’s key leaders had already fallen in line with the President’s desire for a military strike. Now, we are witnessing strong pressure from the congressional leadership with those on both sides of the political divide lobbying the House and Senate to support their commander in chief.
