...Congress is? I believe USA congress is the direct representatives of the peoples of the USA, not the President, he is indirectly elected through electoral colleges, not the senate, they are elected at a rate of 2 per state, not on a Rep for Pop and as such REpresent the State not the People. Also please advise why your President's have in past since 1995, extended this 6 month extension for reasons of SECURITY. Also, please explain what Security your President's have feared and how that isn't Terrorism: to not do something politically for fear of violent reprisal. Hmm.... seems to me that if it wasn't for fear of Muslim extremists this wouldn't be an issue. Kinda makes you think...
