ABSTRACT
An essay about the impact of the constitutional system of checks and balances on national security in the U.S. is presented. It explains the issues on the War on Terror that would justify its claim that the checks and balances distorts democratic deliberation about security issues. It discusses the political dynamics that would explain the shortcomings of public discussions about security policies imposed by U.S. President George W. Bush. It tackles how the Democrats questioned the Iraq war in order to challenge the policies of the president.
