Re: Cyber Combat: Act of War

Dear Sirs:
Despite the Pentagon's assessment of the threat from cyber warfare, it is up to Congress to declare war (Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution). In our constitutional republican form of government the military is strictly subservient to civilian authority via the president as commander in chief (Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution). Needless to say, the president may not delegate an authority that he does not possess.
