McCollum backs military action in Libya (to a point).

DFL Rep. Betty McCollum released a statement saying she supports the U.S. involvement in creating a “No Fly Zone” in Libya. But the 4th District Congresswoman also says she wants President Obama to consult with Congress before any other military action is taken.

Here’s her statement:

“The brave men and women of America’s armed forces are fulfilling critical missions around the world. Now, they are participating in a broad international coalition to protect the Libyan people from a murderous tyrant. While I support the current, limited U.S. mission in Libya, I have serious concerns about deepening U.S. military involvement. President Obama must consult with Congress before further expanding America’s commitment in Libya.”
