Mr. Goldsmith said that could be a nod to the possibility that U.S. special forces are either already being used in Syria or will be used for intelligence activities, and for the chance that search-and-rescue operations might be needed, too.
"If the Congress wants to terminate presidential power to use military force in Syria after 90 (or 180) days (as opposed to remove authorization for the use of such power, thereby allowing the president to fall back on his inherent powers), it can probably do so constitutionally in this context, but it must be crystal clear," Mr. Goldsmith wrote.
