No Vote on War?

White House lawyers have concluded that President Bush doesn’t need congressional approval to launch an attack against Iraq. Read the CNN.com story.

My high school government class was taught differently. Certainly a congressional, and thus a people’s, mandate is appropriate. The White House’s stance implies either a bluff at Iraq or the possession of intelligence beyond what has been revealed to the public. Hopefully it is not the former.
