"Neoconservatives Urge House Republicans Not To Cut Funding For Libya Mission"

Three prominent neoconservatives are circulating a letter to House Republicans calling on them to continue funding military operations in Libya despite concerns about the evasion of the War Powers Act. The letter – authored by Bill Kristol, Elliot Abrams, and Robert Kagan – warns GOP lawmakers that cutting funding would be “an abdication of our responsibilities as an ally and as the leader of the Western alliance.” The letter goes on to defend American intervention in Libya and criticizes the White House for doing “too little to achieve the goal of removing Qaddafi from power.”
