Surprise! CIA’s at Work in Libya (WIRED)

Surprise! CIA’s at Work in Libya


For nearly two weeks, the U.S. military has insisted it’s had no contacts with the Libyan rebels. Turns out we reporters weren’t focusing on the right agency.

In a monster scoop, Reuters’ Mark Hosenball reports that President Obama issued a secret order authorizing unspecified covert “support” for the opposition to Moammar Gadhafi.  Mark Mazzetti and Eric Schmitt of the New York Times add that for “several weeks,” CIA operatives have been on the ground in Libya, contacting the rebels and gathering targeting information for the air war.

Obama says that the goal of U.S. policy is to get rid of Gadhafi — only it won’t be a goal of the war, which NATO now runs. A substantial portion of his Monday speech on Libya argued that a coalition military overthrow of Gadhafi was unwise, as it would require the third U.S. occupation of a Muslim country since 9/11.

Question I'd like to know and of course will never hear the answer from the Gov ... So how long have the CIA and other coalition opratives been there, what have they been doing?

Correction:  I DID NOT make the original post on this forum, but I did post it on Facebook... not trying to take credit for anything which I did not originate. I apologize to you, Robert for making it appear that I originated the post.

Something VERY interesting: I posted the 2nd of the 10 Top Videos listed to the right about Facebook being a part of the CIA. I took that video, posted it on Facebook. I have not received ANYTHING since I posted it over 15 hours ago. I saw one of my friends (relative) pop online while I was there. I tried to contact them via chat. The next thing I know, they sign-off! Hmmmm.  Coincidence? Any thoughts?
