Newest Nontroversy: Giving Away US Sovereignty Edition
The source of the video is Senator Jeff Session’s office, and surprise… there’s an edit in the video. Even with the edited video it’s strained to take the exchange between Sessions and Panetta as supporting the headline ‘International Permission’ Trumps Congressional Permission For Military Actions.’ But after viewing the original video from C-SPAN minus the edit, it’s clear that Panetta did not speak of giving away any US sovereignty at all. The key exchange starts just before the 2 hour mark.
Panetta is merely for building consensus working with other nations and groups, which means asking permission, which means we’re a bunch of UN wussies.
