Pelosi: Obama Doesn't Need Congressional Authorization for Libya Action

Pelosi: Obama Doesn't Need Congressional Authorization for Libya Action...House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said she is “very protective of congressional prerogative” regarding military action but believes that Obama did not need Congress’ authorization to take action against Libya and does not need congressional authorization today to continue with the operation.


  1. ‘Nothing More Impeachable' Than War Without Authorization, Says Constitutional Scholar (But we aren't at war with Libya, ARE WE????)

    btw....who is approving the funds being spent for the Libya invasion????

  2. Obama: U.S. Actions in Libya ‘Legitimated’ By UN.... In a 30-page report justifying continued military involvement in the NATO-led strikes in Libya, the Obama administration claims that U.S. military involvement is “legitimated” by the UN Security Council – saying that therefore no congressional authorization is needed.

    So, is Obama saying we are controlled by the United Nations and Congress is just a group of people collecting paychecks in D.C.??????

  3. We are all in agreement that the U.S. needs to pull out of the U.N. asap???????

    We Must Pay Our U.N. Bills, Obama Administration Insists
    Heritage Foundation scholar Brett Schaefer points out that the U.N. regular biennial budget has more than doubled between 2000-2001 and 2010-11 (from $2.49 billion to $5.16 billion), while the separate biennial peacekeeping budget has grown threefold over that same period (from $1.7 billion to $7.2 billion).

    The U.S. alone pays 22 percent of the regular budget and more than 25 percent of the peacekeeping budget. The contributions are assessed according to member states’ relative “capacity to pay,” calculated from national economic output.
