Mission Uncertain? U.S. Role in Libya, Mideast

Ad Feedback

Congress is pressuring the Obama administration to provide a clear plan and exit strategy for U.S. military operations in Libya.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are expected to face tough questions when they brief lawmakers on the situation Wednesday.
President Obama's nationwide speech Monday was expected to give answers about U.S. involvement in Libya, but many say it only generated more questions.

“After listening to the president last night, after being involved in two White House meetings, I still have to ask the question: What's our plan?” asked Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga.,  a member of Senate Armed Services Committee.

Meanwhile, reports have surfaced in the intelligence community that there are “flickers” of possible al-Qaeda and Hezbollah involvement with Libya’s rebel forces.
