Would launching a military operation in Syria violate the U.S. Constitution?

A book released this week presenting a case for the impeachment of President Obama says arguments Obama used in the 2011 military operation in Libya may have violated U.S. law. The U.S.-NATO-led campaign in Libya was launched under similar circumstances using the same “Responsibility to Protect” doctrine that reportedly is being used to justify the pending operation in Syria.

As with Bashar al-Assad’s Syria, Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi was accused of atrocities and human rights abuses in quelling a months-long rebel-led insurgency targeting his regime. Assad is accused of launching a chemical weapons attack against civilians last week.

In “Impeachable Offenses: The Case to Remove Barack Obama from Office,” New York Times bestselling authors Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott dedicate a chapter to the possible constitutional issues with the military campaign in Libya.
