Speaker Boehner has the right target, but the wrong gun. The real problem with the Libya intervention is not the fact of the war, but its purposes. Obama has limited American intervention to the terms of the UN Security Council resolution, which aims to prevent harm to civilians. This dooms the war to a persistent civil war -- only when the U.S. and its allies decide to oust Gaddafi will the war come to a swift end. Simply demanding that the President make clear the war's objectives by Friday is not going to change Obama's meandering approach -- he can just send Congress a letter repeating his adherence to the U.N. Congress can only force a change toward a more aggressive strategy by refusing to fund the conflict unless Obama accelerates the pace of American action to force quick regime change in Libya.
