WASHINGTON - War-fatigued lawmakers in the US House of Representatives took a symbolic swipe at President Barack Obama's Libya policy on Friday, rejecting a resolution that would have authorized his limited military intervention against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi for a year.

The Republican-led House, upset over Obama's failure to seek congressional approval of US military action in Libya, voted 123-295, largely along party lines, to reject the resolution endorsing US involvement in the NATO-led mission.
