This week, Joe Biden ordered his first military strike when an air assault was carried out against a militia stronghold in Syria.
Ironically, the attack was almost identical to a strike ordered by Trump that drew the outrage of virtually everyone on the left as well as having resulted in a War Powers Resolution being introduced in Congress to limit presidential powers on strikes such as this.
Biden broke the very resolution Democrats put in place against Trump and now Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) wants answers.
Was It Legal, Joe?
Most of us would probably agree the strike was appropriate, but this is about Democrats setting themselves up for failure on this front.
It is also about a progressive movement that puts American security far behind that of terrorists.
Since Joe Biden did not seek congressional approval for this strike, Omar wants to know why.
On this, she stated, “I mean, I certainly am hoping that the administration can give, you know, legal rationale on why they authorized this strike without Congressional approval.
“You know, we in Congress have congressional oversight in engaging in war, and we haven’t been briefed yet.”
When Trump ordered an airstrike in 2017 under similar circumstances, current White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tweeted, “And what is the legal authority for strikes? Assad is a brutal dictator. But Syria is a sovereign country.”
Now we all want to know what that difference is between Trump’s order and Biden’s order.
