and on and on

With my post titles now being shamelessly copied, another question for drone supporters occurs to me:

Our current policy under the AUMF is effectively that the President is authorized to attack anyone, anywhere, anytime, as long as some tenuous connection to al-Qaeda can be made. If, instead of drone strikes, our method of attack was sending in a battalion of marines, would that change your thoughts about whether or not we’re justified in doing what we’re doing? Because I wonder if the cleanliness and ease with which the drones work has desensitized us to the fact that we’re attacking these other nations just as surely as if we were invading with ground forces.

Congress can’t keep ducking its Constitutional obligations.
