TVFormer officials on war powers act

Jul 8 - A panel led by former Secretaries of State say the 1973 War Power Resolution is ineffective and that a new law should force the U.S. president to consult with Congress before going to war.

The commission led by former Secretaries of State James Baker, a Republican, and Warren Christopher, a Democrat, aimed to clarify the cloudy division between the White House and the U.S. Congress over the power to conduct war.
