The House of Representatives voted on a pair of resolutions related to the Libyan conflict today. The first resolution — which rebukes President Obama for the way he has conducted the Libyan operation and demands more information and accountability from the administration — passed 268 to 145. The second resolution, authored by Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), would’ve required U.S. armed forces to withdraw from Libya within 15 days. It failed 265 to 148.
