Syria: Manufacturing a Crisis One Week Before the Election?

Did George W. Bush order yesterday’s attack across the border of Syria? He should have been the one to do so if he is the actual and not just the nominal commander in chief of the armed forces. A president should be the one to order the military violation of national borders. If he did not, then there is some other group within the Bush administration taking on the authority of the commander in chief… or no one in the White House is in charge.

So which is it: did George W. Bush (or some group of regents) choose to manufacture an international military crisis one week before the 2008 presidential elections… or is the American military out of civilian control?
