Title Rogue presidents and the war power of congress
Date 1988
Description Since World War II we have engaged in overt and covert war and acts of war, often initiated by the president without the authorization of Congress. By presidential directive we have conducted full-scale war; initiated coups; mined harbors; encouraged political assassination; aided insurrection and sabotage; trained, equipped, and set loose our own brigands and terrorists; and responded to terrorist acts against our citizens by executively approved reprisals.
