No "boots on the ground", eh?

"[General Carter Ham, Commander of U.S. Africa Command] reminded reporters that the US President, Barack Obama, has said that there would be no US troops on the ground in Libya."


We suppose nobody informed the 2,200 Marines from the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit who are right now on their way to Libya about Dear Leader's recent pronouncement on that subject.

The soldiers in question must be clad in Topsiders, will be suspended above the terrain by wires or are somehow otherwise not going to be technically counted as "boots on the ground", then, because they're definitely going to be momentarily arriving in-country.

More obfuscation, misdirection and outright fibbing on the part of our president.  What a shocker.  No wonder he declined to let Congress know about his intentions.

And worse yet, guess who's supporting the rebels in Libya? You guessed it, the same guys that were killing our boys over in Iraq and the 'stan.

Obama has this great ability to jump from the frying pan into the fire....
