War Powers Act Does Not Apply to Libya, Obama Argues

    NYTimes.com: The two senior administration lawyers contended that American forces have not been in “hostilities” at least since April 7, when NATO took over leadership in maintaining a no-flight zone in Libya, and the United States took up what is mainly a supporting role — providing surveillance and refueling for allied warplanes — although unmanned drones operated by the United States periodically fire missiles as well.

California school district cancels $45,000 fundraiser over Bible verses in bricks

    Herald Sun: Christians should be allowed to express themselves on public school campuses just like everyone else,” David Cortman, a lawyer for the Alliance Defense Fund, said in a written statement. Alliance Defense Fund, a conservative Christian organisation, initiated the lawsuit for Hart and Caronna. “It is cowardly to shut down everyone’s participation in this program simply out of animosity toward Christian speech,” Mr Cortman said. “There is absolutely nothing unconstitutional about a Bible verse on a brick when a school opens up a program for anyone to express a personal message. The school could simply have allowed the Bible verses, but instead, it chose to punish everyone.”
