A longtime ally of President Barack Obama says he must come to Congress before taking military action in Iraq, except to secure the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad. Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., the former head of the Democratic National Committee, said Obama “must seek congressional approval” before launching military action against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) unless there is a direct and imminent threat to the United States, such as a threat to the U.S. Embassy. There is no such imminent threat now, Kaine said.
