Making News on CSPAN with Congressman Adam Smith

I interviewed Congressman Adam Smith, the senior Democrat on the House Armed Services, for CSPAN's Newsmakers program, which aired Sunday.

He had just come off the floor from Friday's series of votes on Libya, which settled, well, nothing in the months-long debate in Congress over the conflict.

I thought it was interesting that Smith didn't think this would be the end for the House face-off on the U.S. role in NATO-led mission.

The subject is certainly going to be a hot topic in the Senate (CQ, $$) this coming week, with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee slated to hold a hearing on Libya Tuesday morning, and a mark-up of the resolution authorizing the use of American force that afternoon.
