From a legal perspective, "we" did not attack Libya, NATO did. We assisted NATO with the attacks. So from that standpoint, we did not send the military into Libya.
The NATO treaty only provided for self defense - for supporting one member if they were attacked.
The North Atlantic Treaty provides no support for the intervention in Libya, AFAICT.
The UN Security Resolutions could provide better legal cover...
