Abstract

The Persian Gulf War of 1991 highlighted the gulf between the executive and legislative branches over the extent of the president's constitutional and practical war powers. President Bush appealed to his constitutional designation as commander-in-chief, among other things, as well as U.N. authorization in asserting broad authority to conduct extensive military activity in the Persian Gulf. Congress, on the other hand, countered by invoking their plenary constitutional war powers and the requirements of the War Powers Resolution. This thesis examines that controversial and recurring debate.
