What the..

The Oministration is just now sending in CIA officers to find out who the rebels are after over a week of bombing to protect them?
The CIA’s efforts represent a belated attempt to acquire basic information about rebel forces that had barely surfaced on the radar of U.S. spy agencies before the uprisings in North Africa.

Among the CIA’s tasks is to assess whether rebel leaders could be reliable partners if the administration opts to begin funneling in money or arms.
They should just ask the president--just the other day he said they were mostly doctors and lawyers and such.

By the way, is funneling money and arms something we can even talk about? It's a good bet those aren't covered in the UN resolution. And what happens if they are more than just 'flickers' of al-Qaeda, do we blow up the whole country?


They should have saved this for tomorrow:
President Obama finally and quietly accepted his “transparency” award from the open government community this week — in a closed, undisclosed meeting at the White House on Monday.
With no pool reporters or photographers allowed in to watch. Unreal chutzpah.

But just another day for an administration whose spokesman recently claimed "..has demonstrated a commitment to transparency and openness that is greater than any administration has shown in the past, and he’s been committed to that since he ran for President and he’s taken a significant number of measures to demonstrate that". In other words, he's talked and thought about it more than anyone, buster!

I don't think the CIA is a big deal, as some in the military said we have probably had CIA in Libya for a long time.

There had to be military/CIA or somebody on the ground marking targets for the US planes also.

The fact that they are talking to the leaders, whoever the leaders are, probably could not have happened weeks ago.

There are several "generals" who are claiming leadership, plus we are having several defections from Gaddafi's side, somebody must weed them out and see who is legit and who is not.

But Obama saying we will not have ANY boots on the ground is just a lie.

Gates saying there will be no American boots on the ground as long as he is in charge is also a lie.

Right Truth

You're right of course. I'm making fun of the rhetoric. It's a bad habit.
