The CIA is operating in Libya to help the United States increase its "military and political understanding" of the situation, a U.S. intelligence source said.
"But yes, we are gathering intel firsthand and we are in contact with some opposition entities," the source told CNN.
The White House refused to comment on a Reuters report Wednesday that President Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing covert U.S. government support for rebel troops.
"I will reiterate what the President said yesterday - no decision has been made about providing arms to the opposition or to any group in Libya," White House press secretary Jay Carney said in a statement. "We're not ruling it out or ruling it in. We're assessing and reviewing options for all types of assistance that we could provide to the Libyan people, and have consulted directly with the opposition and our international partners about these matters."
The call is on for the whole middle east people to join forces and fight to overturn your dictatorship Government and brake free from your oppression, its now or never.
No the US should not trust to arm the opposition, instead we should go in with our forces and back them up...solidarity! No this is a wise move, they can not stand a chance alone against Gadhafi forces, Israel should get involved and help their fellow Arabs it would be good for their relations with Pakistan, Gadhafi must be terminated asap.
We should sand in the MAFIA to do Gadhafi they will get it done
