Rep. Allen West: Congress Not Consulted Before U.S. Attack on Libya (Video)

Posted by FactReal on March 20, 2011

Obama Bombs Libya Without Telling Congress: “On Saturday, President Obama while visiting Brazil launched a United Nations war without obtaining Congressional approval. We all must remember how the left crucified President George W. Bush over a 9 month debate concerning war with Iraq. This debate included multiple UN Resolutions and a Multi-National Force composed of dozens of nations. Many refer to this time of debate as a “rush to war.” Yesterday however, President Obama approved the launch of Tomahawk missiles effectively engaging us in a Libyan civil war. This decision came with no debate in Congress and one UN Resolution that was only voted on 48 hours before.”

Rep. Allen West Very Concerned about Military Mission in Libya:

West says that as a member of the House Armed Services Committee and considering his lengthy military background he should have been consulted before we started a new combat front with Libya. Instead, he says, Congress was sent home to their districts and the next thing you know is that the US is engaged militarily with Libya.

WEST: Well first of all I can’t tell you what the mission is; I don’t think anyone knows what the mission is. When we say were going to go in and protect civilians, that’s going to be very hard to do from thirty thousand feet.

Congressman Allen West (R-FL) is a “22-year Army Veteran who served in Operations Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom, and as a Civilian Advisor to the Afghan Army in Operation Enduring Freedom.” He served in “13 different countries, including 3 combat zones.”

  2. There is no doubt that Obama is more of a war criminal than Bush ever was , and yes , Bush was crucified for it in the press and by all democrats while there is not a word about a real war criminal taking it upon himself to jump into a civil war in another nation where we have no business dealings at all. Furthermore , he is constitutionally treasonous for all the violations of said document he has perpetuated in the phoney health bill , his announed policies and edicts pronounced without consent of congress or due administration process , for giving away tax dollars on a whim to only those he wants to ignoring again the will of the American people. He is DIRECTLY responsible for the high unemployement rate and the failing economy through his un-American socialist policies and high handed use of appointed czars to bypass the peoples elected officials .
