Mar 7, 2012,WASHINGTON—Under question from Sen. Sessions at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing today, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey indicated that "international permission," rather than Congressional approval, provided a 'legal basis' for military action by the United States.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s testimony asserting that the United Nations and NATO have supreme authority over the actions of the United States military, words which effectively declare Congress a ceremonial relic, have prompted Congressman Walter Jones to introduce a resolution that re-affirms such behavior as an “impeachable high crime and misdemeanor” under the Constitution.
Judge Andrew Napolitano addressed an exchange on Wednesday between Sen. Sessions and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta regarding the Obama Administration's apparent belief that "international permission," but not congressional approval, is a necessary precondition for any military action by the United States.

They don't need Congress to approve WAR...IT IS WAR TO ATTACK ANOTHER NATION, A PURE ACT OF WAR!
What will it take for Americans to say "ENOUGH!"?
It's sliding way south, folks, and if we don't erect an impenetrable barrier to TREASON now, it's going to roll right over us!
