The constitutional allocation of war powers between Congress and the President and the authority of Congress to restrict ongoing military operations are considered in a new report from the Congressional Research Service.

See “Congressional Authority To Limit U.S. Military Operations in Iraq” (pdf), January 29, 2007.

A related study on “Congressional Use of Funding Cutoffs Since 1970 Involving U.S. Military Forces and Overseas Deployments” was updated on January 16, 2007.

Also new (or newly updated) from CRS are these:

“Germany’s Relations with Israel: Background and Implications for German Middle East Policy,” January 19, 2007.

“North Korean Ballistic Missile Threat to the United States,” updated January 3, 2007.
