U.S. Representative Speaks About Libya

U.S. Representative Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon), the Vice Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, issued a statement on the situation in Libya on Monday.

He issued his support for the service men and women called into action by President Obama.

Congressman Thornberry said, "All Americans should support our service men and women when called into action by the President. I believe that it is important, however, for the President to define their mission clearly, to explain the strategy he intends to use to accomplish that mission, to estimate the costs, and to state whether he is setting any kind of time limit on our involvement. I also believe that the President should seek the approval of Congress if our military involvement continues."
