Drew Zahn of World News Daily reports that Rep. Walter B. Jones Jr., R-N.C., has introduced a resolution declaring that the president’s use of offensive military force  without Congressional authorization would be considered “an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor.”

Jones cites Obama’s authorization of military force in Libya as an example for such unilateral action.

Former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo wrote in WND: “This week it was Secretary of Defense Panetta’s declaration before the Senate Armed Services Committee that he and President Obama look not to the Congress for authorization to bomb Syria but to NATO and the United Nations. This led to Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., introducing an official resolution calling for impeachment should Obama take offensive action based on Panetta’s policy statement, because it would violate the Constitution.”

Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution reserves for Congress alone the power to declare war.
