Al Hunt: Obama Needs Congressional Authority to Wage War

Democratic Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia says the question of whether Congress needs to authorize President Barack Obama's declared war on Islamic State was settled by Thomas Jefferson when that president went after the Barbary pirates more than 200 years ago. Jefferson, a founding father, dispatched ships to the Barbary Coast of North Africa as a protection force in 1801 because Muslim pirates were seizing American merchant vessels.
