Civilian control of the military in the United States is widely conceived to be Congressional control. The ultimate goal of Congressional procedures is believed to be the "effective Congressional--and civilian--control of the military establishment."1 It is questionable, however, if the United States Constitution intends Congress to be the instrument that exercises civilian control of the military.
