This article reviews President Truman's unilateral commitment of troops to Korea in 1950 and concludes that Truman acted in violation of the Constitution and the UN Participation Act of 1945. Relying on Security Council resolutions is not a legal precedent for contemporary Presidents, including Bush and Clinton, to circumvent the need for congressional approval.
