WASHINGTON -- The White House says President Barack Obama is having a conference call with congressional leaders on the situation in Libya.
The Friday call comes after lawmakers have criticized the president for not consulting with them sufficiently before launching military attacks against Moammar Gadhafi's forces. Congressional leaders also say Obama has failed to lay out clear goals for the mission.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Obama would update leaders of both parties on new developments in Libya, where NATO on Thursday agreed to take control of the almost week-old no-fly-zone.
Obama also met earlier Friday with his national security team.
