House Republicans are annoyed at the White House for releasing its 32-page report on the Libya military mission to the New York Times before delivering it to the Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).
The Speaker’s office said late Wednesday afternoon it had not seen the report, while the Times had already posted a story based on interviews with senior administration officials and citing the report. The Libya document is a response to a House-passed resolution demanding answers to a long series of questions about the operations, including its costs, duration and objectives.
In releasing the report to the press around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, the White House said it was “conveyed to all members of Congress today by the Department of Defense.”
