U.S. forces are still flying hundreds of bombing raids over Libya even though the Obama administration claims that American armed forces are only playing a limited role in the conflict.
Since NATOs Operation Unified Protector took over from the American-led Operation Odyssey Dawn on 31 March, the U.S. has flown hundreds of strike missions, according to United States Africa Command (AFRICOM).
The White House originally claimed that U.S. planes were mostly providing intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance and played down the number of bombing raids.
However AFRICOM spokeswoman Nicole Dalrymple said: 'U.S. aircraft continue to fly support missions, as well as strike sorties under NATO tasking.

Where’s the GOP?
A limited operation? We supply 75% of the money to NATO and are doing 75% of the bombings. Limited my a$$.
The GOP is helping Obama fund ACORN, Sharia,
and plotting new taxes disguised as “fees”.
The last election meant nothing.
It is SSDD with the RINOs eager to please.
O just keeps lying over and over about damn near everything and the press just accepts it. The loser repubs just silently allow this to happen. The conservatives in both houses need to coordinate and hammer this usurper day after day on all of his lies. They need to force the press to cover all these lies.
They are all sharing a tanning booth.
¨Wire Congress. Wire Congress. Wire Congress....¨
Isn’t this just the way a demonRAT fights a war? Why are we doing this, I wonder? IF we are NOT there to kill or get rid of Khaddafi then just what ARE we doing?
Obama is an idiot.
Anybody who knows NATO knows that the US has to be the main player in any nato combat ops. The US owns the lions share of NATO’s combat forces, and the other NATO members have all kinds of reservations about injuring anything at all. That’s what makes them such useless allies. We fund nato, staff nato, provision nato, fight nato’s wars, and, if nato blood is shed, it is 99% of the time American blood.
‘Days, not weeks’
Yeah, right—where is the GOP? On the same payroll.
LOL! A great line from a great movie!
Experts have testified that his 57 layer PDF “Birth Certificate” (one layer for each state? LOL!!!) is a FRAUD. If no one dares to question him on that, how DARE we question him on the War Powers Act?
All those pilots are subject to wrongful death law suits in even USA courts due to this is not a “war” (according to the CIC himself), it has no Congressional authorization, Libya poses no risk to national security or affairs of USA, etc. Bambi would be the first to sell out out pilots and other military operatives when the stuff hits the fan. Qadaffy’s family has already filed a suit over USA bombing private residence of Qadaffy’s non-combatant son and it killed the son and his children. Pure madness. Extra-legal, war crimes actually.

We will bomb those civilians to safety if it’s the last thing we do! Did I say “we”? I meant NATO!
‘Wheres the GOP?’
They are all sharing a tanning booth.
I thought it was the bath house?
McCain is leading the way on that with a plan for us to fund and organize the Muslim Caliphate.
Kerry, McCain Allied in Expanding U.S. Role in Middle East (by redistributing your $$$ to Islamists)
Kerry and McCain traveled to Egypt last weekend with eight Fortune 500 executives to explore how the U.S. can expand economic investment in that country after the fall of Hosni Mubarak. They envision similar plans across the Middle East in the aftermath of the Middle East revolts that would be similar to the U.S.' Marshall Plan, in which the U.S. invested billions of dollars in war-torn European nations after World War II.
GACK, if there really was brotherly love among the Moose, they’d be tickled to spread their petrodollars around to their “less privileged.”
No doubt! And there’s not a Muslim nation on earth that wants anything to do with the palestinians.
