Vital Link #4

I recommend very little written by anyone other than I, but an opinion piece called The President's Private War is too important to miss. (You may want to read it in conjunction with the second, fourth, and perhaps fifth paragraph of this article, which testifies to the extent of military involvement in an operation that many consider to be exclusively civilian, and thus not covered by the War Powers Act.)  Before reading it, I deemed the conducting of the drone campaigns in Asia one of the thimbleful of things done by President Yo'Mama (see the list of domanisms) that are not to his discredit; it may change your mind, too.
