Obama: A Lot of the 'Fuss' over Libya Is Politics

Wednesday, 29 Jun 2011 01:46 PM

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama says a lot of the 'fuss' made by members of Congress over U.S. military involvement in Libya is political.

He also says involvement in the operation doesn't violate a law requiring congressional approval for military action. The White House says Obama has the legal authority to keep the military involved without a go-ahead from Congress because the U.S. is playing only a support role there.

Obama said Wednesday that the U.S. is participating in a limited operation to help a lot of people against Moammar Gadhafi. The president said Gadhafi is one of the worst tyrants in the world and a person that no one should want to defend.

Obama answered questions from reporters at a news conference at the White House.
