Using Article 5 of the NATO treaty to legalize the war against ISIS

" ..... the recent horrifying terrorist attack against France gives the Obama administration an opportunity to legalize its previously unconstitutional war against ISIS. Up until now, the war has been illegal because the president lacks congressional authorization for it. Assuming (as is highly likely), that ISIS was indeed behind the attacks, the United States has a legal obligation to help defend France under Article 5 of the 1949 North Atlantic treaty, which created the NATO alliance."

[Washington Post]

I fear that Dear Leader hasn't the cojones to to take any such action!!!
