I am always puzzled how the US State Department can defend such interpretation of legislative texts. Delegation of power from Congress to the Executive can only be narrowly interpreted or otherwise, the separation of power would be meaningless. That is the basis of democratic societies. At least, the French constitution of 1958 is far more explicit, maybe because it took France 150 years to get it about right on the matter!
