Obama: ŽU.S. Forces Recently Deployed to JordanŽ

In a letter just sent Speaker of the House John Boehner, President Obama notifies Congress that U.S. forces were "recently deployed to Jordan." "Certain U.S. forces recently deployed to Jordan solely to participate in a training exercise. This exercise ended on June 20, 2013. At the request of the Government of Jordan, a combat-equipped detachment of approximately 700 of these forces remained in Jordan after the conclusion of the exercise to join other U.S. forces already in Jordan,"

Obama writes. "his detachment that participated in the exercise and remained in Jordan includes Patriot missile systems, fighter aircraft, and related support, command, control, and communications personnel and systems. The detachment will remain in Jordan, in full coordination with the Government of Jordan, until the security situation becomes such that it is no longer needed.

The deployment of this detachment has been directed in furtherance of U.S. national security and foreign policy interests, including the important national interests in supporting the security of Jordan and promoting regional stability, pursuant to my constitutional authority to conduct U.S. foreign relations and as Commander in Chief and Chief Executive.

I am providing this report as part of my efforts to keep the Congress fully informed, consistent with the War Powers Resolution (Public Law 93-148). I appreciate the support of the Congress in these actions.

He can send forces for 90 days with out congressional approval kinda, he has to explain why he is sending them there, But if Congress does not like the can really stop him by not funding it. Really he is violation of the War Powers Act.

Congress really is the only one that can declare war. Until such time the president is a president. He does not become Commander and Chief until war is declared by congress.

That small detail has been omitted for some time.
