    Just to be clear, I think your quote proves my point, as does the complete absence of Congressional speeches or pamphlets, etc. decrying  the failure to procure a declaration of war.

    The Congress went along with Tripoli, and is going along with Libya, too, frankly on much the same legal basis.  The WPA is a nice piece of writing, but until the Supreme Court says it is the law of the land, it remains one branch's take on what the Constitution allows.
