international policy. Per the US constitution, all of that power belongs to the President. Congress can huff and puff all it wants, but the President can do what ever he wants. Sure Congress can try to impeach the President, but the reality is the votes are NOT there to do it. If Obama wants to severely punish Israel, he can do it and If Congress tries to impeach him for it, Israel will probably be on the losing side. As always, be really careful what you wish for, do NOT count your chickens and the best laid plans of men, ALWAYS go astray.
