The White House has been claiming that the president has absolute command over the Armed Forces and can disregard the will of Congress. They might be surprised to learn that case law may not be on their side:
"[E]xcept for the actual command of military forces, all authorization for their maintenance and all explicit authorization for their use is placed in the control of Congress under Article I, rather than the President under Article II." Anthony Scalia in Hamdi v. Rumsfeld 542 U.S. 507 (2004).
Am I the only one who thinks that the actions of a "decider" seem to be very close to those of a "dictator"?
