This article begins with an analysis of the "Military Activities in Cyberspace" section of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (NDAA 2012) and its connection to the War Powers Resolution. Part III examines the record of the 1973 Congress to review how the term "hostilities" came to be the operative language of the War Powers Resolution. Part IV explores how the executive branch has explained which type of military activities it considers to be "hostilities" under the statute. In Part V, the "hostilities" analysis is then applied in the cyber context using the Stuxnet computer virus attack in Iran as a test case.
