    (1) The prior commenter is not asserting the probability of such an action, merely the fact that the AUMF here is so broad that it would be permissible. The dangers of the AUMFs for Afghanistan and Iraq were their broadness.

    (2) Obama has said many things in speeches that he has then gone on to completely undermine, so, there's that. (But, again, even though the U.S. remains the only country reckless enough to have used nuclear weapons in an attack, I do not deem future use probable.)
