Boehner Talks Tough to Obama on Libya; Bi-Partisan Lawmakers File Suit Against Admin

In a letter to the White House, House Speaker John Boehner didn't mince words when it came to demanding to know Obama's stance on the situation in Libya.

"Either you have concluded the war powers resolution does not apply in Libya, or you have determined the War Powers Resolution is contrary to the Constitution. The House and the American people whom we represent deserve to know the determination you have made," Boehner said in the letter.

But Boehner is not alone. A bipartisan group of lawmakers has filed a lawsuit against the current administration over the

U.S.'s involvement in Libya. On the top of that list is Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), among other Republicans and Democrats.

In the lawsuit, the politicians state that what the U.S. is doing in Libya is against the Constitution -- that the United Stated doesn't have the authority to go to war in Libya due to the fact that we were not attacked. Nor do we have authorization, the lawsuit says, under the NATO charter, since none of the NATO countries were attacked, either.
