At war with the Constitution

Day 3 of our new war with Libya and the media has repeated at least two lies the administration has provided. Gaddafi did not use his war planes to bomb insurgents, and the rebels don’t want our arms. Perhaps some of them do, they are disorganized. But Feb. 17, Clinton asked if they wanted our arms and they said, “no.” They didn’t  want to be beholding to the U.S.

What I want to know is, why are our officers fighting? I know they swore to uphold the Constitution first. This war is anything but Constitutional.
