Nathan Michael Smith, an US Army Captain, is suing President Obama because he believes the war against ISIS is unconstitutional. The war, which began in August 2014, has never been authorized by Congress. But Obama remains adamant that he has the legal authority to fight ISIS, citing authorizations from 2001 and 2002 related to the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.
"If this is worth fighting ISIS, and I believe it is, it's worth having Congress do its job."
It’d hardly be a surprise if a large chunk of the American public had no idea Congress last week debated President Barack Obama’s authorization for a war he’s already fighting.
"We have to condition the American people: This is going to go on for a long time. It’s terrible to say but that’s the reality. They’re not going to go away easy.”
"It’s about love at the center of it that leads to a protest, that leads to a critique, leads to a resistance, leads to solidarity,.."
"It's the largest leak trial in U.S. history. It has ramifications, wide ramifications."
