far since the adoption of UN Security Council 1973."
He added that he will also update them "on the transition of command and
control to NATO."
Carney indicated in this regard that "what is already happened and is
occurring now is the transfer of command and control over the no-fly zone to
NATO. That is happening."
He said that while Congress is on recess, Obama "looks forward to updating
them on our progress, all that has been accomplished, the lives that have been
saved, the incredible speed with which we have done what we said we would do,
what the president said we would do, which is transfer command and control to
NATO and then update them on the progress or how we see things going forward."
The spokesman affirmed that Obama "believes that consultations with
Congress are important, and he does want to hear their thoughts about the
mission, about the situation in Libya and about our overall policy there."
Obama had participated this morning in a national security council meeting
on Libya, Carney indicated.
