    Yet for now, the no-fly zone option is not seen as having high impact in ending the violence, said the officials, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the private strategy discussions.

    The officials familiar with the meeting would not elaborate.

    Earlier this week, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton told "Early Show" co-anchor Erica Hill in an exclusive interview that the administration believes, "it's important that this not be an American, or a NATO, or a European effort. It needs to be an international one."

    So in your mind he should be working 24 hours a day, every day?

    He is being cautious and rightfully so. Once we are committed there's no turning the clock back. Are you ready to pay the price for another war? It may be time to let other countries take the lead and pay the price.

    I don't see Obama doing that. I do see him flying around the country like he is in campaign mode.

    You miss the point. It will be done with the UN and NATO. Obama should let us know what is being done

    I see we should look weak and not be a leader.

    Obama addressed your concerns in his speech today.

    Obama on Libya: Obama says U.S. would intervene in Libya to aid 'defenseless civilians' - latimes.com
    ASHINGTON — President Obama signaled Friday that the U.S. military might intervene in Libya at the point that "defenseless civilians" are under attack by forces loyal to Col. Moammar Kadafi, but said even then he would weigh the costs of sending American personnel and carefully consider whether such an operation would be "sustainable."

    The president also defended his administration's record on domestic oil production, which he said has increased since 2005. He said he will work to encourage the industry to develop oil production on inactive leases, both offshore and on land, and has directed his administration to explore new frontiers of production.

    But he also argued that domestic production is not a long-term solution to the problem of American oil consumption.

    "Even if we started drilling new wells tomorrow, that oil isn't coming on line overnight," he said. "And even if we tap every single reserve available to us, we can't escape the fact that we only control 2% of the world's oil but we consume over a quarter of the world's oil."

    Re: Oil rises above $90 amid US crude supply drop

    The White House moved quickly to distance itself from National Intelligence Director James Clapper’s controversial statements on Libya, China and Russia today – with a top Obama aide calling Clapper’s comments a “static” analysis.

    Clapper, speaking to a congressional committee on Thursday, dropped jaws by asserting “over the longer term … the [Qadhafi] regime will prevail” – contradicting the carefully calibrated pro-Libyan rebel message Obama’s national security team was seeking to project.

    Already off message, the nation’s top intelligence official went on to describe both China and Russia as “mortal [threats]” to American security – on the very day Vice President Joe Biden was meeting with Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

    National Security Adviser Tom Donilon said he still has confidence in Clapper – but he told reporters on a White House conference call that Clapper’s conclusion about the outcome in Libya was “a static and one-dimensional assessment.”

    Administration analysts have “come to various conclusions about the various advantages that the Qadhafy regime has … and [what] opposition has.” The “multi-dimensional” view of the situation shows that pro-democracy rebels are still strong and worth courting as potential allies, Donilon told reporters on the call, which was intended to outline President Obama’s strategic vision in the region.

    He also said that Clapper’s remarks before the Senate Intelligence Committee were intended to provide an unvarnished description of the current state of military affairs as the regime pushes a counterattack against rebels in key oil ports.

    are you sure these people know what they're doing?

    remember blair, mcchrystal, jones and his waterbugs?
