This publication examines using presidential strength throughout the battle on Terror.

This end renders the structure meaningless in instances of predicament. the writer finds that Presidents have gotten more and more cavalier and that the kingdom may still reflect on adopting an modification to the structure to proffer expressed government emergency powers.
