The NATO airstrike that killed 15 people -- including three children -- early Monday is sure to add fuel to a burning question in Washington: What is the U.S. doing in Libya and why isn't President Obama seeking Congressional approval?
Sen. Barbara Boxer told us the other day that she is OK with the U.S. mission in Libya. But last week, seven Republicans and three Democrats filed suit against President Obama for violating the War Powers Act in the Libyan War.
Boxer was not one of them. She just does not want to see U.S. soldiers "boots on the ground."
"I think what they're doing is working," Boxer told The Chronicle/SFGate.com's Shaky Hand Productions. "I think that we have to make sure taht we stay close to these rebels, so that they understand what democracy is."
Here's what Boxer told The Shaky Hand shortly after she urged President Obama to withdraw 30,000 troops from Afghanistan.
