President Barack Obama has taken the United States to war, now in Syria and Iraq, in violation of the U.S. Constitution — just as he did in Libya in 2011.

“Whatever differences they may claim, Democratic and Republican politicians are aligned when it comes to foreign meddling,” said Nicholas Sarwark, chair of the Libertarian National Committee. “President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush both resort to war in the end.”

The president cites the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force to justify dropping bombs 13 years later.
