Remember We’ll Have No Troops On the Ground in Libya

Unless of course we do:

US President Barack Obama has secretly authorised covert assistance to rebels seeking to overthrow Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi, US media reports say.

He recently signed a document known as a “finding”, allowing support to the rebel groups, Reuters news agency and ABC News said.

Such “findings” are a common way for the president to authorise covert operations by the CIA.

When the CIA gets involved in a conflict it can only go from bad to worse (for a good read on the failures of these CIA tactics pick up a copy of Legacy of Ashes). Also I remember distinctly that George W. Obama promised that we wouldn’t have any boots on the ground in Libya. This would indicate that he was lying but that’s impossible because he’s Mr. Hope and Change!
