WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner Sunday called on President Barack Obama to explain the U.S. mission in Libya and how his administration intends to achieve its goals.

"The president is the commander-in-chief. But the administration has a responsibility to define for the American people, the Congress and our troops, what the mission in Libya is," Boehner, a Republican, said in a statement.

"Before any further military commitments are made, the administration must do a better job of communicating to the American people and to Congress about our mission in Libya and how it will be achieved," he said.
