Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) released the following statement regarding a White House briefing on Libya:
“I joined by phone the meeting that President Obama hosted with members of Congress today on Libya. I found it to be very useful and an informative meeting. The president gave a presentation on where things stand on Libya and where the administration expects events will go, and Secretary Clinton and Admiral Mullen presented additional comments. There was an opportunity for Members of Congress to ask questions and get them answered.
“I think that based on the conversation, members have a good sense of where things are at the present and of the administration’s plans. There are further briefings scheduled for all members next week. I think the president understands the need to consult with Congress on the situation and U.S. actions in Libya, and that this will continue to happen, especially as the Congress reconvenes next week.”
