March 22 — To the Editor:
On Saturday, March 19, President Barack Obama committed a crime, which requires his immediate impeachment. Invoking authorization from the Arab League and the United Nations, Obama ordered an attack on Libya.
Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution is unequivocal — the power to declare war rests solely with the United Sates Congress, and can only legitimately be used when the United States is under attack or faces an imminent threat. The civil war in Libya does not meet these standards.
The first article of impeachment should list Obama’s violation of his oath to uphold the Constitution. The second article should address his treason against the United States. Obama acted under the direction of a group of foreign diplomats. He did not seek approval from the American people by going before Congress to seek authorization. In essence, Obama is acting as an agent of foreign governments, not as the president of the United States.
Obama has put members of our military at risk. He has committed scarce resources to a conflict that is of no vital interest to the United States. More importantly, his random use of force is illegal and immoral.
The Nobel committee must be aghast that a preemptive Peace Prize was awarded to a man who has now revealed himself as a war criminal.
