Author Chris Edelson on the Growing Power of the PresidencyUnknown - 2014
Obama is doing many of the same dangerous things that Bush did, says Chris Edelson, assistant professor at American University, referencing what he considers President Obama's broad interpretation of executive power. He points to Obama's unilateral military intervention in Libya and his defense of the National Security Agency's data collection on American citizens as just two examples of executive over-reach. In this interview, Edelson discusses the historical precedents of expansive executive power and his new book, Emergency Presidential Powers: From the Drafting of the Constitution to the War on Terror.
