Thank you, now can you please refer President Obama to the War Powers Act?
The President did comply with the act - restricting the US's role to logistical support consistent with our obligations to NATO beyond the point that the act authorized the President to act unilaterally.

Hmmm, because those waters would be immediately ajacent to Louisiana's physical coast line?

A 12 mile territorial limit and a 200 mile exclusive economic zone.
While this may often be what happens, it's certainly not a mandatory rule under international law and is subject to other rules and restrictions.
