No the President has this power and to use the military for up to 180 day at his discretion to ensure the safety of the country or to assist other nations in diplomatic relations. Furthermore if congress wasn't devided with party line political garbage and had this country and its citizens at the forefront of every issue this wouldn't even be an issue. The constitution and bill of rights is the only thing Congress should use as a guide for action. Unfortunately that is not the case because individual rights are attacked every day because some think that big government has their best interests at heart and will protect them from everything. That is a very dangerous way of thinking.
