Thursday Briefing


Libya and Budget top PressSec’s session with reporters.

Highlights from Carney’s briefing:

On Libya:

The “substantial role” U.S. played in the beginning of mission has ended, and mission as a whole will be “limited in duration.”

Reiterates that Obama “has no intention” to put U.S. troops on the ground.

On budget negotiations:

We believe there is “a general agreement on a target figure,” which demonstrates “positive momentum.”

Obama has made “tough choices” that he would not have to make in an “ideal situation.”

Stresses “high level of engagement” from the White House.

“Contentious” and ideological issues shouldn’t be tacked onto budget C.R.
