Harry Reid On Libya: "This Thing Will Be Over Before We Know It"

JIM LEHRER:  Senator, welcome.
SENATOR HARRY REID (D-NV):  Thank you very much for allowing me to be on the show.
MR. LEHRER:  Well, first on the Libya military operation, do you believe the War Powers Act requires authorization of further action?
SEN. REID:  The War Powers Act has no application to what’s going on in Libya.
MR. LEHRER:  None?
SEN. REID:  I don’t believe so.  You know, we did an authorization for Afghanistan.  We did one for Iraq.  But we have no troops on the ground there, and this thing’s going to be over before you know it anyway, so I think it’s not necessary.
