The Republican speaker of the US House of Representatives has accused President Barack Obama of “a lack of clarity” and “lack of visibility and leadership” over the Nato mission in Libya.
In a letter, John Boehner warns Mr Obama US operations in Libya must stop by Sunday unless the president gets the approval of Congress.
He writes: “The administration has not asked for, nor received, congressional authorization of the mission in Libya. Therefore, it would appear that in five days, the administration will be in violation of the war powers resolution unless it asks for and receives authorization from Congress or withdraws all US troops and resources from the mission.”
