CIA Doesn't Wear Boots
The Guardian headline read "Robert Gates: No U.S. boots on ground." Apparently, the CIA doesn't wear boots. Does Khalifa Hifter, who lived for twenty years within walking distance of CIA's Langley operation? What is proper footwear for fighting on the ground in Libya?
Meanwhile, a Chinese newspaper gave Gadhafi a chance to be heard: He offered an "oil threat" to nations involved in military action. Gadhafi is apparently unaware, the West always gets its oil. Look for NATO to level the fighting field for rebels, which requires people on the ground.
I'm sure they'll find a way to warn Gadhafi, giving him a chance to escape the country and war crimes prosecution. Does anyone have Gadhafi's shoe-phone number?
