Kucinich pointed out that President Obama did not seek congressional approval for the Libya strike in 2011.

“He didn’t ask Congress about that. He just went ahead and did it. The founders had a reason for putting the war power into Article 1 Section 8. They didn’t want an executive, king-like, to be able to wage war to cause tremendous loss of life or loss of resources to occur to a country without having those who are directly elected by the people having a say it in it.”

“So look, I like President Obama, but this isn’t about who your friends are,” Kucinich added. “This is about the Constitution. … There might be a drone coming to a local neighborhood near you. … Police departments are starting to look at the use drones.”
