Libya War: Reuters said US to provide aid to rebels, aka, escalationReuters is reporting on a new (?) escalation of the Libya War: Mark Hosenball, Exclusive: Obama authorizes secret help for Libya rebels 03/30/2011.
As Stephen Walt said in his reaction to Obama's war address (Why Obama's Libya speech didn't matter Foreign Policy 03/29/2011):
My main objection to the speech was that Obama lied when he said the United States would only pursue regime change through "non-military means," and when he said that "broadening our military mission to include regime change would be a mistake."See also Greg Jaffe and Karen DeYoung, Washington Post 03/28/2011; Eric Schmitt, U.S. Gives Its Air Power Expansive Role in Libya New York Times 03/28/2011; Karen DeYoung et al, CIA operatives in Libya to gather intelligence on rebel fighters Washington Post 03/30/2011.
