This is the Nightly Show segment that I'm responding to about the Constitutional restrictions on war that Obama is ignoring here;
SUPPORT OUR PERSONNEL? - PRESIDENT OBAMA'S LANGUAGE GAMESAPRIL 26, 2016 - As the U.S. quietly commits troops to Syria, Larry cuts through President Obama's military jargon with the help of references from "Game of Thrones" and Beyonce's "Lemonade." (9:04)
But the actual word Obama used was"Personnel";
He can't say "troops" (or should rather) because it's against the War Powers Act;

Here is Rachel Maddow explaining how Congress REALLY needs to declare war on ISIS by now (to 60 days is way past the Iraq authorization... SYRIA IS A DIFFERENT COUNTRY);
Rep.
