The Senate wants to slap a “finding”:http://www.washtimes.com/national/20030813-120409-8659r.htm requirement on the president before he uses special operations forces anywhere in the world.

I haven’t yet read the whole article (Thanks to “Scrappleface”:http://www.scrappleface.com for the link), but my initial thought is that this is on its face an unconstitutional requirement. Only Congress can declare war, true, but the Executive is specifically listed as the CinC.

I’m also concerned about the risk that such disclosures would pose to our troops. The probability of keeping a secret is inversely proportional to the number of folks who know it.

Regardless, it’s breaking, and I wanted to think about it while I sat on the “Katy Freeway”:http://traffic.tamu.edu/devmap/getcam.asp?camnum=318
