No U.S. troops on the ground in Libya . . . yet

Then: "President Obama is still doing his best to avoid entanglement in Libya: He said Friday that U.S. ground troops will not deploy in Libya and that force will not be used beyond protecting civilians."

Now: "The U.S. may consider sending troops into Libya with a possible international ground force that could aid the rebels, the former U.S. commander of the military mission said Thursday, describing the ongoing operation as a stalemate that is more likely to go on now that America has handed control to NATO."

You know it's only a matter of time before U.S. ground troops are in Libya . . . if they're not there already.
