Abstract:

Glennon challenges the myth that U.S. security policy is still forged by America's visible, "Madisonian institutions": the President, Congress, and the courts. Their roles, he argues, have become largely illusory. Presidential control is now nominal, congressional oversight is dysfunctional, and judicial review is negligible. He details the dramatic shift in power that has occurred from the Madisonian institutions to a concealed "Trumanite network"--The several hundred managers of the military, intelligence, diplomatic, and law enforcement agencies who are responsible for protecting the nation and who have come to operate largely immune from constitutional and electoral restraints.
