Congressman Ron Paul, a member of the House Foreign Relations Committee and honorary chairman of Campaign for Liberty, criticized President Obama’s decision to impose a no-fly zone over Libya in a video shot earlier today.
In the video, Congressman Paul argues that:
- The action is an act of War.
- The no-fly zone is unconstitutional because Congress has not authorized it, a point Senate Foreign Relations Committee Ranking Member Richard Lugar agrees with.
- President Obama has illegally seceded U.S. sovereignty to the United Nations.
- The United States cannot afford the financial burden of more military action in the Middle East.
