From the web: President Obama ordered the military intervention in Libya in March 2011 without seeking or receiving authorization from Congress, and continued the military actions beyond the 60-days established in the War Powers Act as the length of time a president may carry on a military mission without congressional approval. The White House issued a statement in June of that year, saying the War Powers Act did not apply. "U.S. operations do not involve sustained fighting or active exchanges of fire with hostile forces, nor do they involve U.S. ground troops," the statement said. The Obama administration acknowledged at that time the operation had cost $716 million in its first two months and would cost an estimate $1.1 billion by September of 2011. Obama owns Libya. He cannot spin it to throw it back on Bush. Meanwhile, Obama's foreign policy has blown up and at least 21 countries are flaming and our flags being torched and embassies invaded and 4 Americans are killed, the USA credit rating is downgraded once again, millions of Americans are upset and wondering what will happen next, THERE IS AN EMPTY CHAIR IN THE OVAL OFFICE, while Obama goes off to another $40,000. per plate fundraiser this evening. Nero fiddled while Rome burned, it is said. Clint Eastwood had it right.
