Recently I wrote that since the war against the so-called Islamic State, or ISIS, keeps expanding, Congress needs to revisit the blank check for waging war that President Trump and former president Barack Obama have claimed it wrote. With the attacks on Syria Thursday, the Trump administration made that need for congressional deliberation even more urgent. U.S. intervention […]
