This video is a few days old, but still worth posting for those that missed it. AP reporter Matt Lee asks State Department Psaki why the Administration claims that Obama is acting courageously by asking Congress for permission to attack Syria.

Matt then follows up with a question asking if the Obama Administration had a spine removal procedure over the weekend?
Interestingly, Psaki response is to double down by saying Obama “has the authority to act without the cooperation of Congress.” Uh… no, Psaki… Obama does not have that authority.
