Guardian, Obama, Congress and Syria, Glenn Greenwald, Sept. 3, 2013. The president is celebrated for seeking a vote on his latest war even as his aides make clear it has no binding effect. It's a potent sign of how low the American political bar is set that gratitude is expressed because a US president says he will ask Congress to vote before he starts bombing another country that is not attacking or threatening the US. That the US will not become involved in foreign wars of choice without the consent of the American people through their representatives Congress is a central mandate of the US Constitution, not some enlightened, progressive innovation of the 21st century. George Bush, of course, sought Congressional approval for the war in Iraq (though he did so only once it was clear that Congress would grant it: I vividly remember watching then-Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Joe Biden practically begging the Bush White House to "allow" Congress to vote on the attack

The photo was officially published on the White House website, with this caption:  “President Barack Obama talks on the phone with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan of Turkey in the Oval Office, July 30, 2012.” White House representative Jay Carney stated after being pressed by reporters about a possible hidden meaning to the Obama baseball bat photo that the US president Barack Obama was a baseball fan and a dedicated Chicago White Sox supporter. It was later explained that the posted photo was to ‘highlight the ongoing close relationship’ between US President Obama and the Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan. Guess who is at the other end of the line this time? http://www.nationalturk.com/en/turkish-prime-minister-erdogan-responds-on-barack-obamas-white-house-photo-with-baseball-bat-23337
