Activities Regarding Instability in the Middle East

On Wednesday, the House passed a resolution regarding the tragic events that unfolded in Libya, Egypt and Yemen. This resolution honors the four United States public servants who died in Libya and condemns the attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Libya, Egypt, and Yemen. In addition, on Thursday, the House of Representatives and the Obama Administration conducted a classified briefing on the situation in the Middle East. During that briefing administration officials including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were supposed to provide a meaningful update as to recent events in the Middle East, however, they provided little to no useful information and generally avoided answering any question by hiding behind an "everything is under investigation" answer. Many Members of Congress of both parties are rightfully concerned about the terrorist attack in Libya that killed four Americans, however, the Obama Administration is not being forthcoming about these events. I firmly believe that if the president had complied with the Constitution and/or the War Powers Act, the Congress would not have allowed the United States to attack Libya last year. Under these conditions, we likely would not have had the terrorist attack on our Libyan Consulate that we experienced earlier this month on September 11.
