(WASHINGTON, DC) New Hampshire’s two Congressman are both criticizing President Barack Obama’s speech defending American military action in Libya as short on details and long on unanswered questions.
In his address to the nation, delivered in front of members of the armed forces at the Defense Military at Fort McNair in Washington, DC, President Obama vigorously defended U.S. military intervention in Libya as the only way to prevent the slaughter of thousands opposed to strongman Muammar Qaddafi.
(WASHINGTON) New Hampshire’s Congressional Delegation is split over President Barack Obama’s decision to launch airstrikes on Libya without first seeking Congressional approval. President Obama committed the U.S. to enforcing a United Nations no-fly zone ten days ago. The bombing campaign is meant to ease pressure on Libyan rebels on the brink of being overrun by forces loyal to Libyan strongman Moammar Qadhafi.
