Quibbling? Oh no, not the White House.

President Obama, against the advice of a great many constitutional lawyers, has decided that firing missiles from U.S. drones onto human targets does not meet the definition of “hostilities” as intended by the War Powers Act of 1973. I wonder. If Cuba were to fire just one missile from a drone onto human targets in Miami, what would Mr. Obama call it, if not a hostile act?
