Is the Pentagon Ignoring Congress in Yemen?


This could be very bad news indeed.

If the Pentagon is ignoring the wishes and directives coming from Congress, then it means that our military leadership has gone rogue.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) asked for a Defense Department opinion on proposed Senate legislation to limit US military action in Yemen. The Pentagon told McConnell that it would ignore any such legislation, as the president is “commander in chief.” Has there been a military coup in the US? And is Congress going to do anything about it?
