"The conservatives who are speaking out against the Libyan action are not just angry because the administration went to the UN Security Council instead of the US Congress to seek authorization, they are also attacking the underlying policy, the dangerous 'responsibility to protect' doctrine. This is explicitly rejected by Barlett and other conservatives, who note Libya 'has not attacked US territory, the US military, or US citizens.' If this is now the standard, then the War Party has lost the tea partiers, a group that includes Bartlett, Lee, Chaffetz, and Justin Amash – who is introducing legislation to defund the Libyan war."
