Dem Rep. Argues Obama ‘Well Within His Right’ to Ignore Congress on Syria

In an interview on MSNBC with anchor Thomas Roberts, Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY) was asked to respond to audio of a number of Democratic leaders in Congress saying that President George W. Bush did not have the constitutional authority to attack Iran without the approval of Congress. Engel said that his reading of the War Powers Act suggests that President Barack Obama does not need authorization but merely needs to consult with members of Congress before striking Syria.
