Andy McCarthy’s post on NRO’s Corner: “How the most transparent administration in history gets a transparent congressional debate on the war in Libya.” As Andy notes, this resolution — Senate Resolution 85 — was nonbinding. It has no force of law. Nor is the Senate the same as the full Congress. And, as Andy notes in another post, this nonbinding resolution was “hotlined” through the Senate with no debate and no vote, receiving “the same amount of consideration as a bill to rename a post office.” It neither authorizes nor endorses American use of force.
