War in Libya continues on what award this is becoming rebel forces now get this they are blaming NATO.
For not winning the war fast enough.
-- meanwhile the battle continues and watch year.
And nobody can.
We believe that is Qaddafi is army bombing the town of Reagan northern it Libya although we can confirm.
Precisely what's happening there but that is one large explosion.
The rebels' top military commander saying that NATO has been too slow on air strikes and that NATO's not doing enough.
-- -- -- Children are dying every day men and women are dying every day because upon -- to -- -- if NATO waited for another week let's ms.
Rodham would have been finished and their would've been no civilians and people would die and the international community would bear the responsibility of such a -- Who is NATO what are they doing that the United Nations have -- NATO over our heads but they haven't done any.
Thing while I want to bring our national security experts -- -- McFarland morning to you didn't think of that NATO is now the problems.
These guys read the rebels really thought that we NATO we the US would go in there topple -- turn the country over to them and frankly that's what we did in Iraq -- -- to cover this kind of mentality it's what -- get a match.
So matters saying you have to kind of fast enough and it's still coming up on the -- nothing -- -- Lee -- that he may not be -- and then now all in real trouble relevant slaughtered so I think they're looking around for -- How did they were taken we come in -- what amounts -- Hours -- -- Marjorie Tripoli and they've been waiting for this board -- Qaddafi and they would have been successful that right they wanted to revolution.
That what you make the point that I -- about four they weren't prepared to -- Look at her and I have prepared I mean this is this is the whole thing is we're seeing day after air today this rebel army isn't an army.
They've never done this before they don't know how to do it and it stoning them -- -- -- He's successful and happened Qaddafi and members held.
You have followed Qaddafi for Ivan reading -- -- thirty years I'm afraid longer federated has intelligence personality analysis from the CIA.
Qaddafi has been waiting for this moment this is his time he thinks -- himself.
As the Libyan Lawrence of Arabia -- sleeps and it can't remember when he came to the UN he wanted to pitch a tent in Central Park last year.
So for him and he sees himself.
As a desert warrior -- -- warrior rallying his country against the Christian crusader invaders.
So he's not going anyways like I wanna -- but he's not gonna and we're not really quite sure how this is in turn them.
Second turn out well what does this tell you about the plan.
Before the bomb I don't think there wasn't happening -- I think what happened is the administration you know and -- they thought.
That they would that they would have a no fly zone -- some -- Qaddafi would leave.
Then they thought what -- bombed Qaddafi will leave now they realize that somebody's -- have to go on the ground which is what the US military was telling them a month ago.
When the secretary of defense the Joint Chiefs of Staff were against us military operation so now they're thinking let's arm -- the rebels may be their boots that go on the ground and in the end of the day.
You know you -- Qaddafi is taking his he's got his check -- move now.
He's Sam position is that what what he says he's positioning his forces in urban areas using people -- civilian populations of humans -- because he knows couple things.
Nobody wants to put their boots on the ground to come -- NATO -- -- they're not gonna do it Andy knows we don't want civilian casualties so he realizes that he can just stay there.
Don't sort of waited out -- he's either got to -- some area where.
He's he can look at what what Milosevic's Boston's -- Saddam Hussein in Baghdad they in Afghanistan.
We do not bomb where there are civilian.
-- Obama there are civilians and he knows that if he leaves Libya it's all over his foreign minister just -- last week with the coast Atlantic Great Britain.
Well what was he would have given a hero's welcome now they're not talking about.
International court in the meantime if there is a NATO bombing of civilians hopefully not to unfortunately I've made it very key parts of the cameras installed tell the world look -- eight Christian -- -- and letters -- olympians in the meantime you say that he sees himself as the Lawrence of Arabia.
Libya Libya that are -- He it it -- a waitress is look at the way lives look at the way he's portrayed himself to -- -- people.
He he is not in our king so much as he's a desert warrior a better -- man.
Who fights for his people against invaders so it to him this is this cramming on -- next up our -- right.
Final question here.
What happens I think consistently you do but but does he stay in power that isn't a country split in two.
Do do we reach the point -- -- is you gotta put troops on the ground.
While -- troops that's a problem I think that you could anyone of those possibilities Sedaris as a possibility.
The country's -- since -- about the kids are the -- -- part we have to be a peacekeeping force.
Qaddafi somehow maybe there what they're hoping.
Is sick about his own people to a man and that doesn't look like it's going to happen and it doesn't by the rebels have been defections but.
And not enough not a matter not half and -- and now.
I KT McFarland thank you thanks to some.
