    He didn't have much choice. #1 ally shot it down in the House of Commons.  Couple hundred Congress members demanding debate and vote.   All kinds of people who are usually allies voicing strong criticism.  Intelligence was weak. NATO said no. Arab League would't back him publicly.  UN pressuring and UN team was given only a few days for an analysis that needed weeks or months.

    Whole world in an uproar.  Protests all over the world today and all over this country, even with only a couple days to organize them.

    80% of Americans said Congress has war powers, Mr. Constitutional lawyer President.

    Not much choice.

    It's not over yet though.
