You are right. American Law is not my strong point: what I said would only apply in countries that follow British common law. Most of the Commonwealth countries, but not the United States, where the Constitution over-rides even the Congress and Senate of the United States.

In any case challenging the Law would have made sense under Bush or Obama, but under Trump it doesn’t matter: he doesn’t want any new wars and would like to close the ones we are fighting now.
