A
brief
glance
further
back
in
history
identifies
numerous
other
examples
of
serious
Congressional
quarrels
with
the
Executive
over
foreign
policy.Woodrow
Wilson's
failed
effort
to
persuade
the
Senate
to
accept
his
League
of
Nations
after
the
First
World
War
is
well
known.In
a
less
renowned
case,William
McKinley
managed
to
annex
Hawaii
in
1898
only
by
transforming
his
treaty,which
did
not
have
the
support
of
two-thirds
of
the
Senate,into
a
joint
resolution
of
Congress,which
only
required
a
majority
vote.In
August
1941,Franklin
Roosevelt
barely
managed
to
persuade
Congress
to
extend
the
draft
by
a
vote
of
203
to
202.
A
more
balanced
reading
of
history
than
that
offered
by
the
new
myth
suggests
that
Congressional
deference
to
the
Executive's
foreign
policy
was
the
exception.Indeed,the
period
of
special
comity
between
the
Executive
and
Congress
on
foreign
policy
was
relatively
brief,extending
from
1941
to
the
mid-1960s.The
unusual
reserve
of
Congress
during
those
years
seemed
to
reflect
in
part
the
sense
of
members
that
Congress'
actions
on
trade
and
security
in
the
1930s
had
led
to
disastrous
consequences:they
doubted
themselves
and
the
ability
of
Congress
to
make
sound
foreign
policies.Even
with
this
deference,the
biographies
of
Secretaries
of
State
George
Marshall,Dean
Acheson
and
John
Foster
Dulles
are
replete
with
incidents
in
which
the
Executive
had
to
make
special
efforts,compromises
and
public
campaigns
to
win
Congressional
support.And
as
the
Congressional
rejection
of
the
new
International
Trade
Organization
in
the
late
1940s
revealed,even
the
grand
architects
of
America's
post-Second
World
War
strategy
could
not
count
on
securing
Congressional
approval
of
all
their
initiatives.
After
the
Executive
demonstrated
that
it,too,could
make
dreadful
mistakes
in
foreign
policy,Congress
moved
aggressively
to
reclaim
its
place.As
Richard
Haass
observed
in
1979,Congress
had
not
only
revived
its
foreign-policy
involvement
during
the
previous
decade
but
it
had
also
changed
the
nature
of
its
role.Before
the
Second
World
War-except
for
a
few
topics
such
as
spending,tariffs
and
treaties-Congress
usually
contented
itself
with
establishing
general
political
parameters
and
expectations
for
America's
international
policies.Starting
in
the
1970s,Congress'
interventions
became
more
detailed
and
substantive.
