WASHINGTON (AP) -- Top Senate Democrats and Republicans agreed Monday on a resolution backing limited U.S. involvement in the NATO-led military campaign against Libya, days after the expiration of the legal deadline for President Barack Obama to seek full-blown congressional authorization.
Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry, D-Mass., and Sen. John McCain, the top Republican on the Armed Services Committee, introduced the non-binding resolution along with five other Republicans and Democrats.
Also backing the resolution were Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin, D-Mich.; Joe Lieberman, I-Conn.; Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga.; Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.; and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.

To the Mods: If this doesn't qualify as "breaking", please put it in the appropriate category!
There’s a pasture somewhere, just waiting for Saxby....
Senators John S. McCain, Saxby Chambliss and Lindsey Graham. Why am I not surprised. It is the usual suspects.
What will they call it? The McCain-Kerry Fight-on-the-wrong-side Bill?
The usual suspects, indeed.
The same damned thing that happened when bill clinton went into Yugoslavia on the wrong side in order to distract attention from Monicagate and scarf up a bit more Albanian drug money.
Otherwise known as Larry, Moe, and Curly..no offense to the 3 stooges, great show
Like Obama is even listening to these pathetic one-handed clappers in the Senate. They’ve allowed themselves to become irrelevant ceding more and more power to the narcissistic Marxist in the White House. This merely enforces the fact.
So our guys gave him an out?
worthless sacks of crap.
The only he got elect was Sarah Palin was on the ticket and South Carolina wasn't paying attention, but he won't make it next time.
That’s Lindsey “Goober” Graham
How about agreeing on energy security for this nation and jobs???? Absolutely useless, the whole bunch of them.
3 RINO idiots who continue to fail to hold the AnointedIdiot accountable for once again circumventing the Constitution and getting us involved in another worthless war....errr, kinetic humanitarian mission..... =.=
Where are the republicans, all I see is the same old liberals.
Normally Saxby is somewhat thoughtful about his participation in congressional foolishness. I believe he’s part of the gang of 6 to keep liberals from slipping in taxes. I believe he’s involved in this resolution in order to force Obumo to document his position. The danger is that Obumo just keeps blowing past congress with no accountability and no one to call him on it.
Fact is Obumo has NO respect for any congressional opinions or actions. He is the messiah. He is always right. He is patient with lesser humans as they catch up to his superior intellect.
I don’t think it’s a bad idea to hamstring BO. This one effort may not amount to much but a good web has many strands.
What a hypocrite.
Disgusting. We need to ban parties.
Neither is McCain. Never was.
a resolution backing limited U.S. involvement in the NATO-led military campaign against Libya... Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry, D-Mass., and Sen. John McCain, the top Republican on the Armed Services Committee, introduced the non-binding resolution along with five other Republicans and Democrats.No news coverage of the Libyan involvement? Strange. When it was time to destroy the Taliban, the media shills called the congressional face-saving faux agonizing the most thorough gov't discussion of a US conflict since the Civil War. And then didn't call out any of the turncoats when they turned coat.
