Are we arming Al Qaeda?
Isn't it said today that we don't know quite who the rebels in Libya are? Now we're finding out that 2-3 weeks ago, Obama signed an order to help arm them, according to THIS article. There is quite a bit of thought that Al Qaeda's among those rebels........are we arming AL QAEDA?
Oh, GEEEEEEEZ...then, there's THIS, confirming that 'questions loom about the possibility of arming rebels'? NOW WHAT?
The first linked article says: "Interviews by U.S. networks on Tuesday, Obama said the objective was for Gaddafi to "ultimately step down" from power. He spoke of applying "steady pressure, not only militarily but also through these other means" to force Gaddafi out." But..... what's Obama mean when he says he wants Gaddafi OUT but doesn't want regime change? Does that make sense??
Are there any adults running this situation? Couldn't he have waited to see who the rebels were before arming them? Do you think we can get out of Libya before it escalates on US?$$$$$ And, shouldn't we be spending that money on OUR BORDERS?
UPDATE: According to THIS, we've sent teams of CIA into Libya....I'm wondering if anybody but the CIA should have known that? Sometimes, I wonder at the intelligence of a group who's covert and announces they're there......or coming. geeeeeeeeeeeZ
