For all we know, reporting it was necessary due to leaks, could be a false report in itself. We already know Obama doesn't like Republican leaning news outlets. Or libertarians. That he'd love to get his hands on the internet, even to shut it down. The right is opposed to most of what he stands for including going after guns. This, plus going after patriots or Constitutionalists, after having a HS head labeling the same folks as terrorists doesn't give any of Obama Administrations claims much credibility. He's a wannabe dictator breaking the law by usurping powers he does not possess. When all these things are considered as a whole, it doesn't reflect well.
“The power to declare war, including the power of judging the causes of war, is fully and exclusively vested in the legislature.” ~ James Madison, Father of the Constitution
“We do not believe in aggressive or preventive war. Such war is the weapon of dictators, not of free democratic countries like the United States.”~ Truman, Sept 1, 1950
