The White House has been forced to defend President Obama's policy on Libya, after a group of congressmen filed a lawsuit against him. 

The bipartisan group says the president's actions violate the US constitution. The lawsuit alleges that the president violated the US constitution by intervening militarily for more than 60 days, without seeking approval from congress.

After three months of military operations in Libya, questions are mounting about NATO's ability to bring about a resolution to the conflict. So what is NATO's mission achieving? Are there any other options, and what is the likelihood it will succeed?

Inside Story with presenter Teymoor Nabili, discusses with Justin Logan, associate director of foreign policy studies at the Cato Institute; Guma el-Gamaty, the UK Representative for Libyan Transitional National Council; and Philip Stonor, a former Royal Navy Warfare officer.

This episode of Inside Story aired from Thursday, June 16, 2011.
