Al-Jazeera footage captures ‘western troops on the ground’ in Libya

I’d be willing to bet these are US spec ops. Funny how we went from “there will be no US force on the ground,” and “We’ll be out of Libya in weeks rather than months,” to and open ended commitment in violation of the war powers act with US troops in harms way, and billions of dollars being spent on… something. Funny indeed.

Al-Jazeera footage captures ‘western troops on the ground’ in Libya

Armed westerners have been filmed on the front line with rebels near Misrata in the first apparent confirmation that foreign special forces are playing an active role in the Libyan conflict.

A group of six westerners are clearly visible in a report by al-Jazeera from Dafniya, described as the westernmost point of the rebel lines west of the town of Misrata. Five of them were armed and wearing sand-coloured clothes, peaked caps, and cotton Arab scarves.
