Pence Notes Concerns Over America's Military Action

Last updated on Friday, April 1, 2011

(WASHINGTON, DC) - 6th District Congressman Mike Pence says he has some concerns about America’s Military Action in Libya.

Pence had a meeting with the Deputy Secretary of State in an effort to get answers to questions he has about the offensive.

Pence believes if the U.S. is going to be "all in" then Congress should declare war.

Pence says the Deputy Secretary told him the president has the ability to project American military power in limited manners where vital national interest is at stake.

Pence says if we are going to be at war, which he believes we are, then Congress should declare it and the U.S. should be in it to win.

Pence says this offensive differs from when President Ronald Reagan took action against Libya in 1986.

Back then, Reagan authorized a couple of missiles in one single strike.

Pence says this current operation has already taken more personnel, firepower, and resources.
