Louis Fisher and David Gray Adler examine the legislative history and operation of the War Powers Resolution of 1973 and conclude that it fails to satisfy its stated purpose to fulfill the intent of the Framers and to insure that the "collective judgment" of both Congress and the president apply to the use of military force. They argue that the legislation should be repealed.
