Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) said the White House has kept Congress well-informed about the multinational military mission in Libya.

"The intelligence committee has been briefed," said Rockefeller, a senior member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. "The senators were all briefed in a classified setting. And then the leaders of the House and the Senate have been down in the Situation Room in the White House, which is going way down in the deepest, darkest, most secret place available in the country to be briefed on what's going on in Libya."

Rockefeller made his comments on Wednesday to West Virginia Public Broadcasting.
