    President Obama Signs Order Authorizing Covert Operations in Libya

    President Barack Obama has signed a secret presidential finding authorizing covert operations in Libya, FOX News Channel reported Wednesday, citing a US official. The news was first reported by Reuters, which said Obama signed the measure within the last "two to three weeks," citing four US government sources familiar with the matter.......

    The news comes as The New York Times reported Wednesday that the CIA had clandestine operatives on the ground in Libya. The unknown number of operatives included those from the agency's station in Tripoli as well as operatives who arrived recently, the report said. The operatives were being used to gather intelligence on targets for airstrikes and to make contact with rebel forces and have been in the country for several weeks, according to The Times.
    And so it begins.

    I kind of assumed this was already going on -- don't we want eyes on the ground "gathering intelligence on targets for airstrikes"? Don't we want to take reasonable measures to ensure we're not bombing aspirin factories or otherwise killing civilians?

    If you can't even keep your plans off the front page, you have no right to be in the covert operations business. Frankly, putting agents on the ground in Libya makes perfect sense, but only if you can keep them hidden. The CIA has pretty much become a laughingstock in the last decade with so many publicly embarrassing failures.

    Then why aren't we occupying half the world? what about Darfur, North Korea, numerous Middle Eastern countries, and many South East Asian countries? We can't liberal the entire world, and certain conflicts we should not meddle in. We can't just start a war, oust an oppressive leader, and assume that peace and freedom will follow.
