Bush's "preemption doctrine," and his order authorizing military tribunals President Clinton's overt and covert military actions in Bosnia and against Yugoslavia, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Osama bin Laden; George H. W. Bush's reasons for not pushing on to Baghdad to overthrow Saddham Hussein after Desert Storm.; Numerous Congressional initiatives, including a 1995 effort to amend the War Powers Resolution and a proposed 1998 amendment to use the power of the purse to limit presidential military initiatives; The 1998 CIA "whistle-blowing" statute; New sections on the Vandenberg Resolution of 1948, the "Little Sarah" incident of 1793, and early apparent precedents that did not make the President the "sole organ" of foreign affairs; New material on letters of marque and reprisal, the law of nations, presidential "fame," and the contributions of Joseph Story
