Confession: I had to look up inter alia to find that it means "among other things."
As an invited caller, I shared with Congressman Wexler my experience the prior evening. I read the passage above to a group attending a lecture by Dr. Bob Bowman, Lt. Colonel, USAF, ret, a fighter pilot in Vietnam, who also directed the DoD "Star Wars" programs under Ford and Carter. Bowman is on a speaking tour to restore the Constitution and hold the Bush administration accountable through impeachment.
As I read from Res. 362, a collective groan rose from the audience as people scrambled for pen and paper to take down the information. Dr. Bowman declared it was something we had to fight. He paused and reflected before stating, "It cuts very close to being a declaration of war."
In response to this, Rep. Wexler offered, "Let me start by just creating a foundation from my view which is that I intensely distrust President Bush particularly as it relates to the use of military force."
