GOP congressman hits Obama for slow Libya reaction

Posted by wlpo on March 25, 2011

NORMAL, Ill (AP) – Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger says President Obama was two weeks late with a declaration of a no-fly zone over Libya.

Kinzinger made the assertion during a talk to communications students at Illinois State University in Normal.

Answering student questions, the first-term congressman said his tactics would have been different from Obama’s on establishing the no-fly zone.

The (Bloomington) Pantagraph reports Kinzinger said he would like the president to state clearly if he thinks it’s time for a regime change. However, he is glad the president did not seek congressional approval before deciding to bomb Libyan forces attacking civilians.

Kinzinger also talked about the Japanese nuclear crisis, saying it has not shaken his preference for “clean energy,” nor does it lessen his support for nuclear power in the United States.
