I'm torn on this one. Does the United States Army have power over 
Congress, or does Congress have Power over the United States Army? Also, 
is this Rule even tackling the correct power? I read the power from 216:8 
as "the Constitution and Legislation of the United States", not Congress.

Any thoughts from the peanut gallery?
