The “Secret” Is Out: US Has All Kinds Of Footwear On the Ground in Libya

Posted on March 30, 2011

Boots, sneakers, wing-tips – whatever CIA operatives and advance soldiers/trainers wear, they are in country and holding their first ever CIA “Boots on the Ground” spring shoe sale  in Libya. Seriously folks, did we really think  that the rebels called in the hits for the missiles from ships and ordinance from aircraft?

One wonders when we will run out of government personnel and have to call a temporary agency during an “incursion” or whatever term is being used to describe our sudden military presence in someone else’s country.

You have to love the way Obama set things up. He said from day one he likes to surround himself with people who disagree with him – to sharpen  him up.  As a result it is patiently clear that Hillary wants us in Libya while Barack is still agonizing over details. We are not a damned if you do and damned if you don’t country.  Make up at least one mind among you in the administration, will you?

Let me be clear: adult residents of this country do not want to keep reading headlines such as:

Source: CIA operating in Libya, in consultation with opposition

U.S. military switches Libya strategy

Libya’s foreign minister resigns

Report: Obama offers help to rebels

‘Flickers’ of al-Qaeda in Libya

Amid debate on whether the allies will arm the retreating and undertrained rebels, a U.S. intelligence source told CNN the CIA is in the country to increase the “military and political understanding” of the situation.

“Yes, we are gathering intel firsthand and we are in contact with some opposition entities,” said the source.

Makes you wonder if Pentagon sources or CIA deep throats have a grasp of reality:  most governments and people do not talk secrets with or in the press. Don’t insult our intelligence.
