Congressional restrictions on military actions

The Congress has been debating whether or not they have the authority to restrict the military operation in Iraq. The Congressional Research Service has just released a timely report on this topic, "Congressional Restrictions on U.S. Military Operations in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Somalia, and Kosovo: Funding and Non-Funding Approaches."

This report gives background on the various approaches to conflict that Congress has taken or attempted to take in the past.
