Webb Voices Criticism of Obama Administration on Libya

In an interview with “NBC’s Andrea Mitchell Monday, Sen. Jim Webb criticized the Obama administration’s decision to participate in international intervention in Libya without consultation with Congress, saying that leaders haven’t explained the military action to the public ‘in any meaningful way.’”

“We have not put this issue in front of the American people in any meaningful way,” said the Virginia Democrat, a former Navy Secretary who serves on the Armed Services Committee. “The president is in Rio, the Congress is out of session.”

“This isn’t the way that our system is supposed to work,” he added.

Webb said that the “administration has also lacked coherence about the end goal of the military mission in Libya.”
