Speech Reax from the Left


Pelosi: “Action was taken to stave off a humanitarian crisis saving thousands of lives.… Members of Congress will receive a classified briefing from the administration on our future limited role in Libya this week and congressional committees will hold oversight hearings. U.S. actions in Libya will be strengthened by continued consultation with Congress. I commend the president for his courage in taking this action and salute our men and women in uniform for their part in saving lives.”

Reid: “The United States has a proud history of standing alongside those who stand up for their own freedom. This month, as Moammar Gaddafi’s forces massed outside the rebel-held city of Benghazi, Libya, and prepared to inflict further atrocities on the Libyan people, we acted to stop this deadly advance.. . . While I support the president’s decision not to commit ground troops to this mission, I share the president’s determination to see this tyrant removed from power.”
