The Soothing Balms of Hope and Change Affect Iraq, Too

Ponder that the Obama administration considers the 2002 Congressional authorization to use force in Iraq, which allowed President Bush to initiate what the current administration considers the "bad" "war of choice" "based on lies" in Iraq, as sufficient authority for the Obama administration to wage the Third Iraq War, which is obviously a good and necessary war:

The White House believes that Congress’s 2002 authorization of the Iraq war — and not just the 2001 authorization to fight Al Qaeda — provides a legal justification for President Obama’s air campaign against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, the Obama administration said Friday.

Hope and change can really do anything!
