White House to Brief Members of Congress on Libya

President Obama “was Friday holding a conference call to consult key congressional leaders, amid rising domestic political scrutiny over the international mission in Libya,” the AFP reports.

The White House said Obama would update the leaders on the progress of the international coalition’s effort so far to protect civilians and degrade Moamer Kadhafi’s armed forces.

"We want to hear what they think, and if they have suggestions about things we should be doing. The president obviously wants to hear that," said White House spokesman Jay Carney.

Obama will also brief key players on Capitol Hill on the ongoing transfer of the command and control aspect of the mission from the US military to NATO, Carney said.
