Here’s a letter to the Wall Street Journal:
Months after ordering the U.S. military to commence the still-ongoing air strikes in Libya – and, hence, after disproving his initial claim that these strikes would last “days, not weeks” – Pres. Obama, as you report, informed Congress yesterday of “the administration’s view that the Libyan conflict is too limited to require authorization by Congress under the War Powers Act” (“Obama Defends Libya Intervention,” June 16).
Can I cite Pres. Obama as an exemplar if I refuse to pay taxes this year because my view is that my income is too limited to require such payment under the Internal Revenue Code?
