Speaker Boehner on the President’s Libya Speech

by Daniel Foster

To reporters earlier this afternoon:

“Some of my questions were answered by the president, I think, but others were not. The fact that the plan appears to be a humanitarian mission to stop the slaughter of innocent people in Libya, certainly is something I think that most of the congress would support. But the second part of this plan is that we hope Qaddafi leaves. I just don’t think that that is a strategy. And when you listen to all of what’s going on and all the words, it really is nothing more than hope. So if Qaddafi doesn’t leave, how long will NATO be there to enforce a no-fly zone? That’s a very troubling question.”
