Joe Lieberman: The US Constitution 'Aids our Enemies'

Former Senator Joseph Lieberman has decided to put in his valued commentary on President Obama's handling of Syria. According to the former Senator, "our enemies are cheering" because Obama decided to seek congressional approval rather than just going ahead and bombing Syria. Like Peter King, John McCain, and Jennifer Rubin before him, Lieberman has utter contempt for the Constitution, the rule of law, and the separations of power. 

But Lieberman goes even further than the others, in suggesting that adhering to the Constitution is to aid "the enemy" (presumably his enemies are Assad, the Iranians, and especially Putin, and not the al-Qaeda terrorists murdering Christians in Syria).

McCain Spends Memorial Day with Al-Qaeda Allies

Senator John McCain snuck into Syria this Memorial Day to spend the day with the terrorist-affiliated Free Syrian Army, in violation of both Syrian Law and likely of international law. While meeting with the Syrian insurgents and FSA Commander, Gen. Salem Idris, McCain likely assured his allies that it was only a matter of time before the US began overtly transferring the weapons it is currently facilitating covertly.

Gen. Idriss is the conduit for hundreds of millions of dollars in US aid, and untold millions in covert CIA and US Special Forces assistance. He swears he does not cooperate with the terrorist-designated Al-Nusra Front, but to keep appearances he coordinates only with the Al-Nusra-allied Arhar al Sham.
