Peter King Would Have Liked a Heads-Up About Libya

“I don’t know how seriously he took this,” Republican Congressman Peter King said about President Obama’s preparation for military action in Libya.

“He seemed so intent on getting multi-lateral support, United Nations support,” rather than congressional support, King told John Gambling during a radio interview on WOR Wednesday morning.

“I don’t think he spoke to the committees, the Foreign Affairs Committee, the Foreign Relations Committee, the Armed Services Committee,” said King, who chairs the Homeland Security Committee and seemed particularly annoyed that he didn’t hear about this from the president directly.

“On St. Patrick’s Day Thursday, I was at a lunch sitting two seats away from the president and three seats away from the [House] Speaker, and Libya never even came up.”
