(Reuters) – President Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing covert U.S. government support for rebel forces seeking to oust Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, government officials told Reuters on Wednesday.
Obama signed the order, known as a presidential “finding”, within the last two or three weeks, according to four U.S. government sources familiar with the matter.
Such findings are a principal form of presidential directive used to authorize secret operations by the Central Intelligence Agency. The CIA and the White House declined immediate comment.
Of course, no one knows exactly who these “rebels” are.
They are former members of the Gadhafi regime, which for the most part, are just as bad as Gadhafi himself. There is no reason why I should be forced to pay for the guns these clowns are using.
We got 40 million people on food stamps and the federal government is taking my money and spending it on guns for foreign insurgents.
