Senate Bill Would Approve US Role in Libya RETROACTIVELYSubmitted by Michael Nystrom on Wed, 06/22/2011 - 15:03
WASHINGTON (AFP - Via Activist Post) - Two "top" US senators on Tuesday introduced a bill that would retroactively support America's military role in Libya, amid a raging debate over whether President Barack Obama flouted the law by not getting prior congressional approval.
"I believe we will find a strong, bipartisan majority that is in favor of authorizing our current military operations in Libya and seeing this mission through to success."
"This resolution authorizes the limited use of American forces in a supporting role. It says specifically that the Senate does not support the use of ground troops in Libya."
"[I will vote against it.] I will have a resolution that will replace it. In my resolution, I will say that the President is in violation of the War Powers Act, and he should obey the War Powers Act and disengage."
