The Reagan Administration, the 1973 War Powers Resolution, and the Invasion of Grenada
Michael Rubner examines the extent to which the Reagan administration complied with the 1973 War Powers Resolution when it dispatched U.S. troops to Granada in October 1983. He concludes that the decision to invade violated both the letter and spirit of the law and offers several suggestions for enhancing congressional participation in future decisions involving deployment of American forces abroad.
