Denham Questions War Direction
Sonora, CA – Republican Congressman Jeff Denham is questioning President Obama’s approach in Libya.
Denham and other Republicans have argued that President Obama lacked the Constitutional power to send troops into combat.
“I’m very concerned about the direction, and I’m very concerned that the President has launched an attack without the approval of Congress,” stated Denham in a recent interview. “I know that we needed to do something, but he’s not shown a direct course for the American public on both the funding, and the troops that are going to be in harms way.”
Denham’s Congressional District 19 covers Tuolumne County.
“Earlier the President had talked about two different missions,” add Denham. “A humanitarian mission and also taking out the government of Libya, and those two conflict with each other.”
During the President’s weekly address he laid out his reasoning for joining the effort to remove Dictator Moammar Qaddafi. To view the text, click here.
