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.”
