Is US fighting a war in Libya?

The decision to go to Libya has become the center of conversation in Washington.   It’s not just a political issue, however, but also a point of contention in the power struggle between the legislative and executive branches.   This morning there was a hearing with senators on both sides of the aisle questioning the State Department’s top lawyer Harold Koh.   Koh is urging US lawmakers to vote for a resolution authorizing America’s role in the NATO-led mission in Libya. Lawmakers say that, under the War Powers Resolution, President Obama should have come to Congress for authorization a long time ago.
