Consequently, the CIA organized a counter-revolutionary force called the contras to wage a secret war against the Sandinistas.

Bipartisanship in Congress has not changed much since the 1970s. The dichotomy between before War Powers resolution and after makes theorizing about the relationship as a dividing line between Foreign policy surround a dangerous international environment into one that is a function of a resurgent Congress. The more we get through the 21st Century the more it seems as Congress having more and more of an influence and acting not in concert with the President while hearing loudly what the People of the U.S. know and hear about through the media.
