Michigan Senator Carl Levin defends president's handling of Libya
Michigan U.S. Senator Carl Levin is defending President Obama’s decision to get involved in the war in Libya. Critics have complained the president waited too long to act or should have kept the U.S out of the conflict. Levin says the president has chosen the right course.
“He has proceeded in a way which is cautious and thoughtful.”
“The long term goal is to keep the pressure on to have him be removed."
Levin expects the Congress will ask the president to comply with the War Powers Act next week. The president will then have three months to respond to Congress’ request for information about the decision to bomb Libya.
Levin is the chairman of the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee.
