Post column and Libya
I’ve slacked on updating the blog lately, but here’s a few updates:
I now write a column for The Post which runs every Monday this quarter. My first column discusses the perils of government intervention in the economy.
The Obama administration has sent teams of CIA operatives into Libya in a rush to gather intelligence on the identity, goals and progress of rebel forces opposed to Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi, according to U.S. officials.
Such information has become more crucial as the administration and its coalition partners move closer to providing direct military aid or guidance to the disorganized and beleaguered rebel army. Officials said that, though no decision has been made, President Obama, in a covert finding, has authorized preparations to launch such an effort.
The “kinetic military action” in Libya appears to have failed to avoid mission creep.
