Congressional Resurgence and the Destabilization of US Foreign Policy
MILITARY ACADEMY WEST POINT NY
Pagination or Media Count:
This article will explain how Congress reasserted itself during the Vietnam War and thereafter. Essentially, I will argue that congressional reactions to the war itself were less significant than the statutes Congress imposed on the executive branch as a result of the Vietnam War. Those statutes have dramatically restrained the presidency in conducting national security affairs. The result of these laws is the domestication, the democratization, and the destabilization of national security policy making.
