Beschreibung:

A troubling look at why, for a variety of reasons, congressional power on issues of war and peace has diminished over time, resulting in an abdication of responsibility as the executive branch led the United States into a war with Iraq in 2003.
When the Founding Fathers lodged the power to declare war in Congress, they did so with good reason. In arguing against giving that power to the president, James Madison, the Father of the Constitution, contended that, "The means of defense against foreign danger have been always the instruments of tyranny at home." It is a warning that seems to have been largely forgotten.
