Interesting concept from a political standpoint, but the big question is, "Who's in charge"?

This book is about a section of the US constitution that says Congress has the right to issue a 'Letter of Marque and Reprisal'. This fiction book deatails the envents after a teriorst attack on a US flaged Commercial vessal, when Congrees issued an order to a Navy Aircraft Carrier for them to attack when the President has issued an order directing them not too. This is a very interesting book.

Similar to the works of Tom Clancy. An American Cargo ship has been
seized by terrorists off the coast of Indonesia.....America prepares
for war and Jim Dillon;a Congressional assistant finds himself in
the center of a firestorm that rages from Washington to killing fields
a world away.

A great blend of Tom Clancy and John Grisham.

I prefer a little more action. The book was a little slow for all the dialogue, but the dialogue was interesting in that this book predates 9/11. A lot of the ideas about terrorism, and pending terrorism. It made the author look like a psychic... At any rate there were some excellent points made about our government, liberties, freedom, etc.

What if terrorists hijacked a brand new US merchant ship and murdered its crew, but the President refused to retaliate? What if the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces ws unwilling to use America's military might to defend and protect American citizens from attack? What if Congress used long forgotten power in the Constitution to authorize military action without the President's approval?
