America’s Afghan war is lost and illegal. The Bush administration got no Security Council authorization or congressional declaration of war. International law expert Francis Boyle said Congress passed a War Powers Resolution Authorization. Doing so gave Bush “blank check” power “to use military force against any individual, organization, or state” at his discretion.
International and constitutional law be damned. Waging war on Afghanistan “is clearly illegal. It constitutes armed aggression. It is creating a humanitarian catastrophe for the people of Afghanistan.”
