If we are still involved in Libya in any way a month from now, the administration will be in violation of the law.

    Thank you for saving me the effort of having to type exactly that, except that The Obama, not having the authorization in hand now, is already in violation of the law.

    The American leaders of the intervention are Sam Locklear (Navy), Carter Ham (Army), and James Stavridis (Navy).

    That's not what I asked.

    he attacked another countries army, with American troops, with Amercian dollars..

    doesnt matter how you dress that, working with the UN, not putting boots on the ground, whatever.... it needs to have approval after 60 days.
    You dont play with American lives with a "technicality"

    American soldiers, peoples sons a daughters could die carrying out these acts, THATS why we have this 'law'..
