The President may deploy military force preemptively against terrorist organizations or the States that harbor or support them, whether or not they can be linked to the specific terrorist incidents of September 11.

I mean, our soon to be V.P. on Hardball threatening to impeach the Pres. only to come back to haunt him years later.
I'm sure Biden will soon explain how all that was said on Hardball was taken out of context to make him look bad
They're all criminals.

Doesn't matter. These guys are just angry that we're trying to keep Muslims from dying. They were mad for the same reason when we intervened in Serbia / Kosovo. Illegal wars against Muslims? A-okay. Legal UN actions to keep Muslims from dying? IMPEACH OMG IMPEACH IMPEACH!
Just to recap.
1st Iraq war = good
Lethal sanctions against Iraq for 12 years= good
Somali invasion = good, until Clinton's inauguration, then bad.
NATO intervention to prevent ethnic cleansing in Former Yugoslavia = BAD BAD BAD!!!
Completely pointless invasion of Afghanistan = GOOD!
Illegal invasion of Iraq = GOOD!
Drawdown in Iraq = BAAAAAAAAAAD!
Escalation in Afghanistan = Ambivalent muttering
Trying to keep Libyans from getting massacred = BAAAAAAD! BAAAAAD!
Biden currently does have the authourity known as President Of The United States Senate and is incredibly well versed and is highly respected by the international community as Foreign Policy is actually something he is good at. Legal loopholes means that this conflict is backed fully by The United States Senate and guess what else? The Senate is the Upper Chamber of The Congress. Allow him to handle and oversee this with our allies and we should not expect to see this happen same way Iraq and Afghanistan did. Cheney and Rice were horrible when it came to matters like this.
The War Powers Resolution of 1973 (50 U.S.C. 1541–1548) was a United States Congress joint resolution providing that the President can send U.S. armed forces into action abroad only by authorization of Congress or if the United States is already under attack or serious threat
