Gen. Petreaus and Amb. Crocker Express Ignorance Of The US Constition

In this segment of the hearings, Ron Paul asks General Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker if Bush has the authority to bomb Iran without the approval of Congress.

They both tell us that they have no clue.

Yet, this is clearly covered in the US Constitution as Ron Paul explains to them, as if to small children that have no been paying attention in class.

Neither General Petraeus or Ambassador Crocker have any pertinent knowledge of the US Constitution or the Law when it comes to war.

I am concerned and saddened that these men are unfamiliar with the US Constitution.

As they are ignorant of the US Constitution, I suppose we can assume they are ignorant of the Geneva Convention and the fact that it carries the full force of the Law. After all, the US Constitution is clear on the topic of treaties, and tells us that they carry the full weight of the law.

Men who are too ignorant to be familiar with the US Constitution, US Law, and the Geneva should not be representing us in war or diplomacy.

But it makes sense that Bush would pick them. He strikes as the kind of man would surround himself with ignorant people, to make himself appear smarter. And on this basis he would've chosen very ignorant men to lead his war.

But they are the ones committing war crimes, and the ignorant folks like Alberto Gonzales and Mukasey watching the hen house, there's little danger of them being brought up on charges any time soon, if ever. Especially with Nancy Pelosi protecting and enabling them.

Wease
Under the Constitution Bush must have the okay of Congress but not today. Petraeus and Crocker want to stay out of the fray while doing Bush's bidding.
However 9/11 through the Patriot Act made Bush the soul Decider and he can act when he feels the Nation is in danger. You know that means when he feels his agenda is in danger,
After the surge and siege Crocker and betrayus has bout Bush the time till he can instigate war with Iran and then Bush can do what he wants. No one should make the mistake of thinking the idiot will listen to anyone or do the right thing!
