HYANNIS (CBS) – Massachusetts Congressman Bill Keating feels the U.S. military has enough to handle already, and any involvement in Libya may prove to be too much.

“We’re already extended near the limit, and I do think opening up in another theater is unwise,” said Rep. Keating.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Doug Cope reports.

Keating said if Libya’s government was to change, that’s the responsibility of Libya and not the U.S.

“If the U.S. is even seeming, is having the appearance of being part of that, that very effort won’t be successful,” said Rep. Keating.

He added that Libya remains very unsettled and things could spin out of control very quickly.
