CARSON STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT OBAMA’S ADDRESS ON LIBYA
INDIANAPOLIS – Congressman André Carson released the following statement tonight in reaction to the President’s address discussing the United States’ involvement in Libya.
“The President’s remarks reassured Americans that our decision to protect Libyan civilians from unspeakable brutality is a crucial component of America’s finest ideals. I was encouraged when he restated that our role in Libya is lessening, was extremely limited, and has never included the prospect of U.S. ground troops.
“In the days ahead I will continue to monitor our involvement to ensure that our military engagement in Libya is in the best interests of the American people.”
