    Lee described the administration’s presentation as “probably the worst briefing, at least on a military issue, I’ve seen in nine years I’ve been here.”
    “I find it insulting, and I find it demeaning to the Constitution of the United States to which we’ve all sworn an oath,” Lee continued. “It is, after all, the prerogative of the legislative branch to declare war.”

    People who enter the US without our permission are illegal aliens and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the US legally

    If we saw bin laden at an ice cream store, it would have been wrong to take him out there? We have to wait until we see him on bugged phone, coordinating an attack? I like shoot on sight/site much better.
    Think of how the left would act had we not acted, and the dirtbag killed more of our troops!
