After an appearance at the Minnesota State Office Building in St. Paul today to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the passage of Health Care reform, Senator Al Franken told The UpTake that he supports President Obama’s military intervention in Libya and the grand NATO-Arab League coalition that the State Department appears to have built. Franken only lamented that we didn’t go into Libya sooner.
