So Qaeda fighting with rebels in Libya could that be the case a major fear though of the US may be coming true.
Here's what a US NATO command of the supreme commander told a senate committee yesterday.
We have seen flickers in the intelligence.
Al-Qaeda -- we've seen different things but at this point.
I don't have.
Di tale sufficient.
To to to say that that there is a significant.
Al-Qaeda presence or any other terrorist presence in and among these folks.
This after -- Susan Rice and arming the rebels is not off the table the president basically saying the same thing.
So can we trust the rebels joining us right now former deputy assistant secretary defense -- -- pentagon spokesperson KT McFarland KT.
Should we in light over the supreme commander of NATO just said that that most -- -- Trouble because they they know they need regime change and they thought they could get it by bombing their first -- -- no fly -- but didn't work.
And I thought they could get it by bombing that hasn't worked now it's donning them that they have to put somebody's boots on the ground.
Now Obama says not American boots on the ground even a special forces is based I guess is they're all -- -- special forces British special forces Robert French army general -- are gonna senate.
So what they're thinking is if -- arm the rebels the rebels can be the boots on the ground they can be the occupying force they can take about the out.
I don't but he said there were -- flickers of Hezbollah and al-Qaeda amongst the rebels and.
A study showed that 90% of the Iraqi insurgency there and have been suicide bombers -- came from once -- small town Dona.
In eastern Libya three hours from -- -- -- so there -- a real legitimate risk and you -- put boots on the ground to train them to use this stuff.
She heckling each -- -- I think that was one of the fallacies of going into this the way we did which was to -- that would be over quickly.
And there would be no risk to the United States we -- use our technology we get him to get out.
And it would all be over -- Qaddafi would be toppled and everybody would be happy.
The problem is who are these rebels in two weeks ago what did you -- you saw pictures of guys on the back of -- with rifles and the -- -- -- Qaddafi.
Tank came they jumped off the truck threw down a rifle and ran away.
So we see did the Hillary Clinton meeting again with some other -- -- leaders and we we France's recognize them as legitimate government of Libya.
And so -- united average -- it's or -- Should we do the same thing continue to meet and interview and then say.
Give it a shot.
They have -- we have a legal problem with the arming rebels thing because we have asked -- and we embargo when we don't sell weapons to Libya OK so -- -- so we have to -- so we have to make an exception of the fact.
That we have this rule because these are the right Libyans that we wanted to I think we need to know a lot more -- yeah.
And he just signed for perhaps get it -- here.
I -- is what these weapons are gonna live for thirty years and as we -- on Afghanistan when we -- to the mujahideen.
During Charlie Wilson's war remember 1980s those are the same weapons that the Taliban is now using against us but a big question but it probably has to be answered within the next three days absolutely so we will have you back to analyze -- decision it seems like we're leaning that way.
KT McFarland no good answer -- great analysis -- Former deputy assistant secretary defense and pentagon spokesperson and Fox News contributor thanks same thing meanwhile coming up straight ahead.
