Pentagon Calls for Limited Libya Rebel Aid

Share


The Pentagon’s top officials say nations other than the U.S. need to step up if Libya’s rebels want equipment and training, vowing that U.S. troops won’t get involved on the ground.

Secretary of Robert Gates is adamant that troops will not be on the ground in Libya. Sources say the CIA has small teams of operatives to make assessments of rebel needs.

NATO is now officially in charge. United States involvement is set to significantly diminish today.
