Obama is at this minute 'working the phones' to drum up support for his catastrophic misreading of the middle east and his apparent intention to 'unilaterally' take the decision to drop bombs on Syria - like any peace prize winner would want to do in the circumstances (rather than, for instance, reach out to Iran and any other party on the planet who might assist a genuine desire to bring hostilities to an end).
When he was running for president in 2007, Obama, a former
constitutional law professor, told reporter Charlie Savage that "the
president does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally
authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve
stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation." That was an
accurate description of U.S. law. Link
