"I'm the decision maker"
Garry Wills got it right. The president is not the commander in chief of civilians. For the Constitution clearly states: “The president shall be commander in chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the militia of the several states, when called into the actual service of the United States.”
President Bush may well be the “decision maker”. But the American people and their elected representatives will still have a say in American involvement in Iraq.
